One of the new tablets that you may have missed at CES 2014 is the Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300. On closer inspection though, it’s no mere tablet. It’s actually the world’s first quad-mode, dual OS laptop and tablet and we have a demonstration to show you how the magic works.

The Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 is easily one of our favorite announcements at CES 2014. We teased that this device was coming here, but now we’re delighted to see it in the flesh and to get a full heads-up on Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 specs.

This laptop doubles up as a fully fledged tablet, but the real beauty about this device is that it can dual boot Android or Windows 8.1 in just 4 seconds. That sounds hard to believe, but watch the video below and you’ll be able to see evidence of this for yourself.

If you often have difficulty deciding whether Android or Windows is best for you – the Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 gives you the pleasure of being able to run both. This happens seamlessly as well thanks to the powerful hardware specs on board.

It’s running on either an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, with 4GB of RAM and a snappy 128GB SSD. The display screen is 13.3-inches and features a 1920×1080 resolution – so full HD. If you require more memory, you can even upgrade the keyboard with an extra hard drive that offers up to 1TB of storage.

These specs are very good for a tablet/laptop combo, but what is the price? ASUS will begin selling these at $599, so that is pretty reasonable considering the functionality and performance that you’ll get. Put it simply – $599 for an Android tablet that is running on an Intel Core i3 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD is not bad at all.

Look forward to a much more detailed insight soon. For now, enjoy the demonstration of dual-boot below and give us your reaction to this tablet. Could it be your next purchase in 2014?
