ASUS TAICHI: The dual screen laptop/tablet
Asus gives us a look at their new dual screen laptop/tablet hybrid. Featuring two screen, one is used in traditional laptop mode, but when the screen is closed, you can enable the second to use as a tablet. Tough to imagine? Just watch the video!
ASUS’ new TAICHI series packs displays on both the front and the rear, letting you use the device in a variety of configurations. In ‘notebook’ mode, you can use TAICHI with a backlit QWERTY keyboard and trackpad. Once you close the lid, however, it’s stylus time. TAICHI includes Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 processors, 4 gigs of RAM, SSD storage, dual-band 802.11n WiFi, FHD/Super IPS+ displays and, naturally, dual cameras. Despite the display duo, both the 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch configurations are reportedly as thin and light as the Zenbook line. Both variants will offer 1900 x 1280 pixels on each side, and displays can be used independently, so you can even share the device with a friend — with completely different content on each LCD.
