Asus' new PC convertible can switch between Windows and Android in five seconds

LAS VEGAS—PC maker Asus is taking the Windows-Android hybrid concept to another level with a convertible laptop that can switch between the two OSes with the click of an on-screen button. The Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 comes as a 13.3-inch notebook with a detachable keyboard, which when removed turns the device into a tablet. But unlike other PC convertibles, the new Asus product can switch between the Windows and Android OSes in either tablet or laptop mode. By pressing an “OS Switch” button located on the screen, the product will alternate to the other operating system in five seconds. The device itself runs Intel’s fourth-generation Haswell chip, and will arrive in late March with a starting price of $599. At the International CES show on Monday, the Taiwanese PC maker also announced that it would finally bring its Padfone product to the U.S., in a partnership with AT&T. The new model, called the Padfone X, is another hybrid that can turn from a smartphone into a tablet.
