In PC station mode it’s attached to a PC dock with its own 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor and 750 GB hard drive, with a connection for an external display. The dock also charges the laptop. In tablet mode itls powered by a 2.0GHz Intel Atom processor and has 64GB of storage, with a 16:9 IPS display with full HD.

“We seek to perfect the balance between engineering and humanity, where every intricate detail echoes our needs for both emotion and function,” said Asus chairman Jonney Shih, in a statement. “This is the ASUS way of Design Thinking, where every idea starts with people and we turn our imagination into a myriad of revolutionary innovations.”
