support HDMI. Technically, in office the powerful Intel Core i7 processor can power a 25-inch monitor for you to shift work to, instead of straining your eyes on a small 11-inch screen. I tried this on a 40-inch Tv and it worked smoothly. Buy I didn’t have anything much to do after that.

Negatives: For me the biggest negative of the Trio is its weight. For a device that adds to the mobility of its user, a total weight of 1.7-kg is unacceptable these days. I don’t think a lot of users would want to take out just the tablet, which thankfully weighs just 0.7 kg. The good thing here is that you can charge just the tablet without the keyboard dock in case you want to use the just the Android.

The other issues I had was with the switchover, when the Android device failed to recognise that the Windows 8 side was working too. This often had weird implications.

One big negative is the price tag of Rs 85,900 that will ensure that this remains an upper management device and not something for the masses.

Verdict: The Asus Transformer Book Trio comes across as an extremely powerful and versatile device that tries to overcome the weaknesses of different form factors by combining three of them in one. This is still far away from being a mass device due to its price, but gives a clear picture of what the future holds for us. Buy the Trio if you will use all of its capabilities, otherwise you will just be wasting money.
