#LovefromAsus: Getting ready for Christmas
You've already started eating the Advent calendar chocolate, but there are still plenty of things to do to get ready for Christmas. Get your menus sorted, plan a play list of music, buy and wrap your presents, the list goes on. That's where the Asus Transformer AiO All-in-One PC and Tablet comes in, helping you enjoy Christmas even more.
Online shopping is getting easier and easier to do with numerous stores offering click and collect options if you want to physically pick it up rather than dice with the delivery man.
Tesco online will deliver to thousands of its Metro stores, John Lewis will send your Christmas gifts to your local Waitrose, while Argos let you reserve to pick up and pay in store, but that's just online. With the choice of thousands Android and Windows 8 apps on the Asus Transformer AiO All-in-One PC and Tablet you get the best of both worlds. Better still, with the detachable screen you can do it in bed too.
Wrapping is important but boring, but it doesn't have to be. YouTube and Vimeo have hundreds of how-to videos on wrapping, featuring dozens of tips and tricks so it doesn't end with you looking like you are playing Twister with the Sellotape. Prop the 18.4-inch screen up on its own kickstand on the kitchen table or living room floor (for those big presents) and start following the videos on screen. Your presents have never looked so good.
Come Christmas Day you'll have eaten so much you'll probably never want to see another turkey - well, not until this time next year. If you're like us, however, you'll want to do something a bit fancier that just shoving the turkey in the oven for five hours.
The internet is a treasure chest of cooking recipes and information just waiting to be discovered. Coca-cola ham, maple syrup parsnips, garlic and sage infused stuffing with apple. Yum.
The Asus Transformer AiO All-in-One PC and Tablet comes with a dedicated docking station that can nicely sit in your kitchen ready to be used and stored neatly out of the way when not. The accompanying keyboard and mouse - which means you can use it like a regular computer - are tucked away underneath the detachable touchscreen, to keep things nice and tidy (it's all very compact).
Nothing says Christmas more than wall-to-wall Bing Crosby blasting from every corner of the house. Windows 8 comes with Xbox Music so you can start playing the latest tunes straight out of the box and the Asus Transformer AiO All-in-One PC and Tablet includes Asus's SonicMaster audio technology and built-in speakers, so playing music is really easy with just the press of a few buttons.
Better still, even if you detach the tablet and take it into another room, the base station will continue to play your music for those still enjoying the beats.
Whether you’re on the go, or around the house you'll get the power of Google Play and the thousands of songs that Google's services offers too, including automatic syncing of tracks across your other Android devices.
With its flexibility, stylish quirkiness and its all in one capabilities, the transformer AIO will unquestionably bring a little spice to your home this Christmas. Asus is giving you the chance to nominate a loved one to receive the Transformer as a gift - just nominate them here.
