ASUS is giving you the best of both worlds by letting you have the option to switch your operating system and your form factor. Dubbed the first “four in one” device, the Transformer Book Duet TD300 lets customers switch between a tablet and laptop, and between Windows and Android.

Running on a fourth-gen Intel Core processor, the Duet can switch between Android and Windows 8 in under five seconds. It will also include its Asus SonicMaster sound technology with dual speakers.

Internal specs include a 13.3-inch full HD IPS display, integrated Intel HD graphics, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD drive in the tablet/screen, and a 1TB hard drive in the keyboard dock. Connectivity-wise, the Duet has 802.11ac Wi-Fi support and Bluetooth 4.0.

In the US, the price tag is US$599. There is no word of Australian availability or pricing.
