ASUS came out swinging at Computex 2012, they showed off the ASUS, the ASUS and the which is a convertible Notebook with Dual screens. The TAICHI has two display’s one exactly where it should be the other on the lid. This lets you use the device in a variety of ways, like a traditional notebook, but once you close the lid you can whip up out your stylus 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 whip out your stylus and you can start drawing on the lid.
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. The amazing thing is, even with these bad ass specs the device is meant to be thinner than the ASUS Zenbook line up. Both the 11.6″ and 13.3″ models offer 1900 x 1280 pixels on each display and they can be used independently, so you can work on one side and your kid could watch a movie on the other. We have no idea what this will do to battery life, but its pretty cool regardless.
There are a variety of connectivity options as well starting with a lock toggle, mini VGA, USB 3.0 and power ports, while the opposite panel includes a headphone jack, a second USB 3.0 port, micro DVI, a volume up/down switch and a rotation lock button.
