THE GOOD
Overall desktop/tablet performance is good
NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M GPU is considerably better than its predecessor
Dual OS, form factor capability
Good audio performance for an AIO
Reasonably priced
THE BAD
Screen is a compromise - too small for a desktop, too large for a tablet
Significant weight makes it difficult to be used as a traditional tablet
Could do with more ports as a tablet

3DMark 11

The ASUS Transformer AIO is one of the first systems we’ve tested to use NVIDIA’s new GeForce GT 730M GPU. And looking at the results here, it is obvious that it is a more capable GPU than the GeForce GT 630M found on the older ASUS and Lenovo machines. The Transformer AIO recorded 2008 3DMarks, a whopping 50% greater than systems equipped with the older GeForce GT 630M GPU. However, it was still no match for the GeForce GT 650M GPU found in the Apple iMac and also the GeForce GT 670M GPU found in the MSI GT70 gaming notebook (shown here for reference).

 

Far Cry 2

Seeing that the ASUS Transformer AIO comfortably outscored all the GeForce GT 630M-equipped AIOs by around 30%, it is obvious that the new GeForce GT 730M is a far superior GPU. However, it was still soundly beaten by the Apple iMac's GeForce GT 650M.
