Review Asus Taichi 31-CX003H Convertible Ultrabook

 

Double-decker. Asus seems to have thought: "One Full HD IPS screen is nothing special" and simply builds two of the high definition screens into its Taichi 31 tablet-ultrabook. How the extravagant 13-incher fares in our tests and whether the...

2 premium Full HD IPS screens, Good build (aluminum unibody), Swift work speed owing to SSD, Decent sound quality, Low emissions, The stylish and elegant design of the Taichi 31 in its robust aluminum unibody casing

Throttling during full load, Low graphics and CPU power, Heavy weight for a tablet, High price, Less weight, which is likely only difficult to achieve for construction reasons. 1.5 kg is simply too much, especially for a tablet

Asus Taichi 31-DH71 Review

 

As an ultrabook, the Asus Taichi does offer a rather unique package. It does well on both the build quality as well as the performance front. But we don't really think the secondary display makes a lot of sense at this time, unless you want to show off...

Classy build, Dual display implementation, Comfortable keyboard, Good battery life

Needs to be handled with utmost care, Costs a lot of money, Only 4GB RAM

ASUS Taichi 31 Review

 

Asus has developed a reputation for bizarre gadgets and whether commercially successful or not, it doesn't shy away from innovation. The latest contraption to hit our markets is the Taichi, a dual-screen Windows 8 hybrid that debuted sometime last...

Inside, we have plenty of space for your palms and a generously sized trackpad with finger-friendly buttons. The chiclet styled keys are backlit and very comfortable to use. There’s good amount of spacing and the tactile feedback is good without being...

Review: ASUS TAICHI 31 - Are Two Heads Better Than One?

 

The advent of Windows 8 has spawned a huge number of touchscreen notebooks and many of them come with a convertible form factor that enables them to switch instantly between the tablet and laptop form. While some have used screens that rotate around a...

Stylish; Good performance; 2 Full HD IPS screens; Long battery backup

Erratic touchpad; Heavy for a tablet; Not meant for serious gaming; Few practical uses of dual screen; Very expensive

Cool, useless features.

 

Owned for 9 months. To use the touch screen, you need to reboot with the lid closed. Gained 80GB of hard drive space after uninstalling Windows. Shutdown now takes 3 seconds compared to 30 seconds with Windows. Boots are equally fast. Windows would not...

2 fully independent LCD panels. One is touch. Perfect performer with Linux Mint with one catch - see comments. USB 3.0. Comes with a nice protective cover. Another great ASUS product

Windows. Came with 8, upgraded to 8.1 within one week of ownership, and upgraded to Windows 10 last week. I hated 10, but don't want outdated software, so I upgraded to Linux. I think two LCDs are too much as I will never get full use of the touch LCD....

Great computer, some inconvenient cons

 

I sort of get the windows 8 in tablet form, but it's can get quite annoying in laptop form when you're switching from window to window. I had to replace to screens (I dropped it), the replacement was a pain b/c had to remove almost all the components...

Very quiet computer and quite powerful for it's size. Runs very cool and extremely fast boot time. the dual screen is a bonus and helps with group projects so we're not all crowding around me ; Very solid build and doesn't have the cheap plastic feel...

It took some getting used to not having a disk drive and at times annoying to have to go to a third party computer to transfer files to a flash drive. The micro-HDMI is a hassle b/c had to get a micro hdmi to hdmi adaptor ; The touchpad is a bit touchy...

Own the product for ~7 month............... The shortest lifespan of laptops that I have ever owned...........................

Light and "functioned" well

It suddenly went crazy. The defaulted recovery is not working at all. I can't even get through original setting
