Asus Taichi 21 Features and Specs with Price

ASUS TAICHI is an incredible fusion of notebook and tablet for unparalleled mobile flexibility.The Taichi is basically a Zen series ultrabook, but with an all glass back housing a second screen.This means that you get super sturdy aluminum construction,with nary a flex or squeak from the frame.The conventional laptop screen i matte and non touch,while the rear is glossy and just begging for you to touch it.They are both 11.6″inch 1080P IPS panels,and cranked up to ma brightness,look pretty decent.In terms of ports the Taichi i got a fairly average load-out to USB 3.0 ports,well located on either side of the machine; Micro HDMI,Micro VGA,a headphone jack and Volume and screen lock buttons.ZWtemzgcxfC9fFQd_500Internally,its packing standard ultrabook internals-a Core i7 processor,a 128 or 256 GB of SSD and 4GB of RAM.Intel’s integrated graphics does the not very heavy graphical lifting.The Best part is the design and screens.Make no mistake,if you’re hogging a table in Starbucks,sipping your fat free joy latte,you laptop is going to turn heads.Even without a screen hiding on the backside,the glass lid and wafer thin base make this an aesthetic masterpiece.And those dual 1080p screens especially the matte inner screen are things of beauty to behold.In normal use browsing the web maybe while listening to music the Taichi struggle to get to four hour of battery life.That’s mid range laptop territory,not ultrabook and certainly not tablet level battery life.

Expected Price: $1,499.99 approx
