In a spate of announcements today, ASUS have shown us their latest innovations, including the new ASUS Transformer Book.  In almost every way, this looks like a normal ultrabook.  The difference however, is that it transforms into a tablet:

Specifications of the device include an Ivy Bridge i7 processor with 4GB DDR3, and in notebook mode, the power of discrete graphics.  ASUS claim this will be the thinnest Ivy Bridge i7 device available.

The Transformer Book should come in 11.6, 13 and 14 inch models using an FHD IPS display.

    I'd kill for a 13"-14" tablet!!! ARM preferably, since Windows would be effectively useless without a mouse for a good year or so.

    but is this is a touch screen?

    Yes, it is. It's a device which will work as any Ultrabook but with a detachable screen that has a touch interface. That's the whole point of it being a Transformer Book - it's a notebook (an Ultrabook to be specific), which can be "transformed" into a tablet.

    With the 8GB ultrabooks coming - how will this device stack up? I know, I know, more RAM less battery life.... but it would be nice to see how Asus book stacks up.
