LAS VEGAS -- Asus is getting increasingly literal about their Transformer tablet line-up. The Transformer Book Duet TD300 doesn't sing literature to you (I'm sure there's an app for that) but it does offer a bevy of options for converting it into the device you need. Not only can it convert from a tablet to a laptop, it can also switch between Android and Windows 8.1 with the simple push of a button.

The 13.3-inch tablet announced at CES 2014, packs a performance punch, with a quad-core Intel i7 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. In addition, the detachable keyboard dock houses a whopping 1TB of internal memory and various ports, including HDMI, LAN, one USB 3.0, and two USB 2.0.

The Transformer Book Duet also features a microSD card expansion slot, a front-facing camera, and audio enhancing SonicMaster technology to complement the tablet's dual speakers.

Though the dual-OS packing convertible tablet is an impressive release, the tablet has a few downsides. It runs an older version of Android (4.1) and, with the dock, it's a thick and hefty package. Also, the Duet's 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution is a far cry from the super-high resolution other CES-debuting slates are rocking.

Check back for more information when we get our hands on the Asus Transformer Book Duet TD300 at CES 2014.
