Both parts of the P1801 feature speakers and what's really cool is that if you start playing music in Windows 8 it will continue to play even if you take the Android tablet element away. In fact you can continue playing music on the base station and then play different music on the tablet.

Happy New Year

Struggling to see who's on the other end of your smartphone's Skype call? You need the vibrant 18.4-inch display with a Full HD resolution found on the P1801. The large screen is perfect for Skype calling your loved ones on New Year's Eve or Day and means you can easily get the whole family around the screen without crowding.

If Skype's not your thing, then the Android element of the Asus Portable AiO P1801 brings with it Hangouts, WhatsApp and a host of other messaging services including Instagram and Facebook. Keeping in touch with people on the P1801 has never been so easy.

Photo time

If you've got everyone coming to you, then why not set the Asus Portable AiO P1801 as a portable photo studio using Instagram or one of the hundreds of other apps in Android and Windows 8 app stores?

Set up the all-in-one tablet in a spare room or area of your house, supply some props and away you go - just like one of those fun photo booths at corporate events.

The P1801 features a built-in 1-megapixel front-facing camera and a kickstand, and the processing power to edit photos quickly and easily.
