To further expand its Windows 8 devices, ASUS launches the Taichi that has a back-to-back dual-screen design for flexibility. This new product aims to combine the full feature of an ultrabook and the convenience of a tablet into one device.
To start things off, the Taichi has a dual-display design to combine multi-touch tablet and ultrabook. With the lid open, Taichi is an ultrabook with full HD screen, backlit keyboard and touchpad. Closing the ultrabook and it will transform to a tablet with touchscreen capabilities offering a Windows 8 tablet experience.
The hybrid PC, which comes in two configurations: Intel quad-core i7 or Intel quad-core i5, has the ability to get both screen running independently or simultaneously. Using the screen change buttons, users can access four modes: Notebook, Tablet, Mirror and Dual-Screen. The first two is self-explanatory while the Mirror Mode means the front and back display will be showing the same thing. As for the Dual-Screen Mode, both displays can be used by two people at once.
The Taichi is already available at RM3999 onwards.
