Asus Taichi review (11.6-inch)


Since Windows 8's debut last October, PC manufacturers have all followed pretty much the same playbook. Build a laptop with a touchscreen? Check. A docking laptop / tablet hybrid? Check. A strange, hinged device that twists and turns from tablet to...

Both displays look great ; Relatively light and thin ; Solid gesture and touch response

Terrible battery life ; Expensive ; Some problematic performance quirks ; Touchpad has issues

Originality does not a compelling product make

Asus Taichi


Gorgeous, slim, very light, dual 1080p IPS displays, good performance

Inner display doesn't support touch, short battery life, expensive

After the June announcement's shock and awe wore off, the Asus Taichi seemed flashy rather than brilliant. After all, few of us really have use for two displays and those displays add weight and reduce durability (the lid is a piece of glass). Sure,...

It's the best of all worlds with the ASUS TAICHI, bringing together your tablet and notebook into one computer. You can complete your work anywhere with this all-in-one device.

The TAICHI can be used in more than four modes, making sharing your display quick and simple. Having an Ethernet port gives you one more way to connect to the internet

The battery life is a dismal five hours, and there isn't an option for expandable storage

Having the option to share your screen in a number of different ways is extremely convenient, but having to plug in after a few hours of use is frustrating.

Asus Taichi review


A Windows 8 laptop with an extra screen in the lid

Dual 1080p screens ; Bang & Olufsen audio ; Comfortable, backlit keyboard ; 256GB SSD ; Windows 8

Average battery life ; Only 4GB RAM ; Dim screen ; Huge price tag

Anything one screen can do, two screens can do better. Such is the thinking behind Asus's latest premium notebook-tablet hybrid, the Asus Taichi.

Asus Taichi Review


A beautiful Ultrabook maverick that confirms two HD screens can definitely be better than one

Asus Taichi 21 review – intro There’s nothing Asus loves to do more than stick a screen, keyboard or even a whole tablet where gadget laws say it simply shouldn’t go. Take the Taichi – it’s lik

The extra screen is a neat idea but ultimately the Taichi is a jack of all trades and master of none

To put it in perspective, you could buy one of Asus's own

Asus Taichi


Hands-on: What's better than one 1080p IPS screen in an 11-inch laptop? Two, of course.

The massive trackpad is lovely to use and of course supports Windows 8 multi-touch gestures. Interestingly, the Taichi’s ‘inner’ screen doesn’t support touch, so this definitely a necessity when using it in ‘laptop mode’.

Asus Taichi


The Taichi is an experiment. While some may find a use for its dual screens, and it's built well enough, the lack of a touchscreen on the interior and troubling battery life could put even those people off.

Both screens are full HD and IPS ; Backlit keyboard is decent ; Affordable price for the hardware involved

Poor battery life ; Interior screen isn't touch, which can lead to some frustrating moments

The Asus Taichi is expected to hit stores in Australia mid-November.

Asus Taichi review


Two HD screens are always better than one, right? That's certainly the case for this bold Ultrabook from Asus

Two dispays are better than one Sexy looks Bold approach to Windows 8

Screens prone to smudges Not powerful enough for gaming A tad bulky

The Taichi’s screen-on-screen action could be exactly what some people want – be they business types, show-offs or just wildly popular Ultrabook users who never get any peace from their adoring fans.

Asus Taichi


Is it a notebook? Is it a tablet? Nope: the folding Asus Taichi is both. Unfortunately, as you'll see in the video review above, it's a jack of all trades, and master of none. The keys are slipper, making typing tricky, and the screen quality just...
