Asus Taichi unveiled: dual-screen laptop/tablet

Asus has unveiled a really interesting new device, the Asus Taichi is a notebook/tablet with two screens.

At first glance the Asus Taichi looks like a laptop, but the top includes a built-in screen. So you can use it like a tablet (its got multitouch support) or a conventional laptop, but the screens can also mirror each other. Both screens boast a full HD resolution of 1920×1080 and use IPS technology, promising clear views from a variety of angles.

Unveiled at Computex along with the Asus Transformer Book, the Taichi runs Windows 8 and comes in two sizes: 13.3-inches and 11.6-inches and includes an Intel Core i7 processor and 4GB RAM. Connectivity options include two USB 3.0 ports, Micro HDMI and mini DisplayPort.

We’re impressed with the Asus Taichi; it looks like a really intriguing product, although we’re not sure who actually needs two screens, but once again Asus has shown how incredibly innovative it is.

Although Asus hasn’t revealed details on pricing the Taichi certainly won’t be cheap. There’s no news yet when it will be arriving in the UK either, but we’ll bring you more news when we get it.
