Produk ini terbilang unik karena memili tiga fungsi sekaligus, yaitu sebagai notebook, tablet, dan PC.

Perangkat tersebut sebenarnya adalah sebuah produk dockable tablet. Artinya, layar dari perangkat ini bisa dicabut dengan mudah dari dock keyboard. Saat dicabut, layar tersebut akan berfungsi sebagai tablet.

Apabila layar berukuran 11,6 inci tersebut ditancapkan ke dock keyboard, maka perangkat akan berfungsi sebagai notebook.

Docking keyboard pun dapat disulap menjadi PC. Apabila bagian ini dihubungkan layar monitor, maka perangkat tersebut dapat dioperasikan menjadi PC desktop.

Selain tiga fungsi tersebut, Asus Transformer Book Trio memiliki sebuah keunikan lain. Keunikan ini berkaitan dengan kata "dua", yaitu dua sistem operasi dan dua prosesor.

Dikutip dari The Verge, kedua sistem operasi yang mempersenjatai perangkat ini adalah Android Jelly Bean besutan Google dan Windows 8 buatan Microsoft.

Bagaimana cara kerjanya? Di produk tersebut, terdapat sebuah tombol "ajaib" yang mengizinkan penggunanya untuk berpindah antar-kedua sistem operasi tersebut dengan mudah.

Sebagai catatan, tombol khusus ini hanya bekerja apabila layar ditancapkan ke dock keyboard. Saat pengguna mencabutnya, dalam mode tablet, perangkat ini hanya mampu menjalankan sistem operasi Android.

Perangkat ini juga dipersenjatai dengan dua buah prosesor, yaitu Intel Core i7-4500U Haswell untuk sistem operasi Windows 8 dan Intel Atom Z2580 2GHz untuk Android.

Prosesor pertama diletakan di bagian dock keyboard, sedangkan Intel Atom dipersenjatai di bagian layar.

Hadir dengan fungsi dual, perangkat ini memiliki dua baterai. Baterai pertama ada di bagian dock keyboard dan memiliki kapasitas 33WHr. Sedangkan baterai kedua ada di bagian layar dan berkapasitas 19,5WHr. Jika digabungkan, keduanya diklaim mampu hidup selama 15 jam.

Media penyimpanan di antara keduanya pun berbeda. Di bagian dock keyboard, terdapat hadir disk dengan kapasitas 1TB. Di bagian layar, terdapat SSD berkapasitas 64GB.

Belum ada konfirmasi harga dari Asus untuk perangkat ini. Namun, Asus mengungkapkan, Transformer Book Trio akan diluncurkan pada kuartal 3 tahun 2013.

BALTIMORE — In the afternoons, the streets of Locust Point are clean and nearly silent. In front of the rowhouses, potted plants rest next to steps of brick or concrete. There is a shopping center nearby with restaurants, and a grocery store filled with fresh foods.

And the National Guard and the police are largely absent. So, too, residents say, are worries about what happened a few miles away on April 27 when, in a space of hours, parts of this city became riot zones.

“They’re not our reality,” Ashley Fowler, 30, said on Monday at the restaurant where she works. “They’re not what we’re living right now. We live in, not to be racist, white America.”

As Baltimore considers its way forward after the violent unrest brought by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of injuries he suffered while in police custody, residents in its predominantly white neighborhoods acknowledge that they are sometimes struggling to understand what beyond Mr. Gray’s death spurred the turmoil here. For many, the poverty and troubled schools of gritty West Baltimore are distant troubles, glimpsed only when they pass through the area on their way somewhere else.

And so neighborhoods of Baltimore are facing altogether different reckonings after Mr. Gray’s death. In mostly black communities like Sandtown-Winchester, where some of the most destructive rioting played out last week, residents are hoping businesses will reopen and that the police will change their strategies. But in mostly white areas like Canton and Locust Point, some residents wonder what role, if any, they should play in reimagining stretches of Baltimore where they do not live.

“Most of the people are kind of at a loss as to what they’re supposed to do,” said Dr. Richard Lamb, a dentist who has practiced in the same Locust Point office for nearly 39 years. “I listen to the news reports. I listen to the clergymen. I listen to the facts of the rampant unemployment and the lack of opportunities in the area. Listen, I pay my taxes. Exactly what can I do?”

And in Canton, where the restaurants have clever names like Nacho Mama’s and Holy Crepe Bakery and Café, Sara Bahr said solutions seemed out of reach for a proudly liberal city.

“I can only imagine how frustrated they must be,” said Ms. Bahr, 36, a nurse who was out with her 3-year-old daughter, Sally. “I just wish I knew how to solve poverty. I don’t know what to do to make it better.”

The day of unrest and the overwhelmingly peaceful demonstrations that followed led to hundreds of arrests, often for violations of the curfew imposed on the city for five consecutive nights while National Guard soldiers patrolled the streets. Although there were isolated instances of trouble in Canton, the neighborhood association said on its website, many parts of southeast Baltimore were physically untouched by the tumult.

Tensions in the city bubbled anew on Monday after reports that the police had wounded a black man in Northwest Baltimore. The authorities denied those reports and sent officers to talk with the crowds that gathered while other officers clutching shields blocked traffic at Pennsylvania and West North Avenues.

Lt. Col. Melvin Russell, a community police officer, said officers had stopped a man suspected of carrying a handgun and that “one of those rounds was spent.”

Colonel Russell said officers had not opened fire, “so we couldn’t have shot him.”

The colonel said the man had not been injured but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Nearby, many people stood in disbelief, despite the efforts by the authorities to quash reports they described as “unfounded.”

Monday’s episode was a brief moment in a larger drama that has yielded anger and confusion. Although many people said they were familiar with accounts of the police harassing or intimidating residents, many in Canton and Locust Point said they had never experienced it themselves. When they watched the unrest, which many protesters said was fueled by feelings that they lived only on Baltimore’s margins, even those like Ms. Bahr who were pained by what they saw said they could scarcely comprehend the emotions associated with it.

But others, like Lambi Vasilakopoulos, who runs a casual restaurant in Canton, said they were incensed by what unfolded last week.

“What happened wasn’t called for. Protests are one thing; looting is another thing,” he said, adding, “We’re very frustrated because we’re the ones who are going to pay for this.”

There were pockets of optimism, though, that Baltimore would enter a period of reconciliation.

“I’m just hoping for peace,” Natalie Boies, 53, said in front of the Locust Point home where she has lived for 50 years. “Learn to love each other; be patient with each other; find justice; and care.”

A skeptical Mr. Vasilakopoulos predicted tensions would worsen.

“It cannot be fixed,” he said. “It’s going to get worse. Why? Because people don’t obey the laws. They don’t want to obey them.”

But there were few fears that the violence that plagued West Baltimore last week would play out on these relaxed streets. The authorities, Ms. Fowler said, would make sure of that.

“They kept us safe here,” she said. “I didn’t feel uncomfortable when I was in my house three blocks away from here. I knew I was going to be O.K. because I knew they weren’t going to let anyone come and loot our properties or our businesses or burn our cars.”

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation
