Is this the future? Or, more bloatware...

    The Asus Transformer Book Trio runs both Android and Windows 8. Asus is calling the Trio a 'three-in-one' computer; there's definitely a lot going on with this computer.
    The machine boasts a unique two-part dockable design that allows for the Trio to be used by one person as a laptop or by two individual people as a tablet and desktop PC. We first saw the Trio at Computex when Asus showed off a flood of new products. The Trio's keyboard dock is a bit more serious than similar products. It actually houses a 4th generation Core i7 CPU as well as up to 1 TB of storage and 4 GB of RAM. The tablet itself runs on a separate Intel Atom dual-core processor and up to 64 GB of solid-state storage and features an 11.6-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display. Users can apparently expect up to 13 hours battery life in Android mode and five hours in Windows 8 mode.
    This isn't a dual-boot machine. Instead, the dock has a Windows install, while the tablet half of this device runs on Android. When docked, the user can switch easily between the two. Alternatively, one person can use the tablet while a second user uses the Haswell-powered dock with an external monitor.
