The PC Station has a keyboard, 750GB hard drive, and is a fully fledged desktop PC when hooked up to an external display.

At Computex, kicking off today in Taipei ASUS announced updates to tablets, phablets and Ultrabooks including Zenbooks, Transformer Pads, Memo Pad and Fonepad, all slated for Australian release late 2013.

Chairman Jonney Shih says ASUS wants to "seek to perfect the balance between engineering and humanity, where every intricate detail echoes our needs for both emotion and function," said ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih.
