Ultrabook The TAICHI 21 DH71 11.6" Ultrabook Computer from ASUS is a unique Ultrabook computer. It features dual 11.6" IPS displays with 16:9 aspect ratios and Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolutions, thanks to the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000. The main screen inside the lid is a normal laptop display while the outer lid features a secondary touchscreen display. Both screens can be used independently of each other so two people can use them at the same time.

The inside screen is a traditional Full HD widescreen IPS (in-plane switching) display. The outer screen is also a Full HD IPS display, but it also supports 10-finger touch gestures, such as tap, slide, drag, pinch-to-zoom and more. There is also an included stylus, which can be combined with the outer touchscreen's 256 levels of pressure sensitivity for accurate handwriting simulation.

Performance

Dual-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core Power
This ASUS TAICHI 21 Ultrabook is powered by a dual-core Ivy Bridge 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-3517U processor. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.0GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated L3 cache, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to experience smooth and seamless multitasking
Dual 11.6" Full HD IPS Displays
The dual 11.6" Full HD displays on the ASUS TAICHI 21 Ultrabook both have 1920 x 1080 native resolutions and IPS (in-plane switching) technology. The outer screen supports 10-finger touch support, 256 levels of pressure sensitivity and handwriting recognition with an included stylus. The two displays can also be used independently with each other so one person can use the outside screen as a tablet while the inside screen can be used by another person as a traditional notebook computer
ASUS Simple Show Technology
You can even project movies, photos and presentations to the external display while controlling them from the internal display using ASUS Simple Show technology
Svelte Design
The ASUS TAICHI 21 Ultrabook features an ultra slim profile and weighs less than 3 pounds, making it ultraportable. It has a polished aluminum finish for a stylish look to match its unique design

Windows 8

The New Start Screen
Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a more tablet style design featuring tiles. These tiles are customizable to your liking and also update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen. If you prefer the traditional Start screen of Windows 7, you have the option to switch to it
Seamless Integration Between Touch, Keyboard & Mouse
Windows 8 supports notebook computers with capacitive touchscreens. Now, you can use your keyboard, mouse or just your fingers. Whether you're browsing apps, reading a book or typing on the go with touch, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between all three interactive components. On touch-enabled computers, Windows 8 supports multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag, tap, slide, pinch-to-zoom and more
To the Cloud
With Windows 8, you'll be able to bring all your personalized Start screens with you by signing into your Microsoft account. When signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your own Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to your services as well, such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
Windows Store
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it

    The wait for the launch of the product was worth it. The equipment is very innovative with the integration of ultrabook with tablet. Lightweight, sleek design, fast and with high resolution on both monitors. I would say that there would be only against the battery life, which was no more than 2.2 hours, and the internal screen is not touch. There as not to arouse the curiosity of people around with a distinctive design of equipment like this.

    Em português: A espera pelo lançamento do produto valeu a pena. O equipamento é muito inovador com a integração de ultrabook com tablet. Leve, design arrojado, rápido e com alta resolução nos dois monitores. Diria que contra haveria apenas a autonomia de bateria, que não passou de 2,2 horas, bem como a tela interna não ser touch. Não há como não despertar a curiosidade das pessoas a sua volta com um equipamento de design diferenciado como este.

    Much heavier than expected. Touch screen didn't work right out of the box. Had to send to Asus and they will keep it for another month.

    Comments about ASUS TAICHI 21 DH71 11.6" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer:

    I was a bit concern about the reviews that was posted online before buying the Taichi.

    I'm into computers since the Timex Sinclair ZX-81. I tried almost everything including Windows, Apple, Linux and Android. I currently own a few computers and tablets (Galaxy, Nexus and Ipad).

    I was looking for a tool to process my pictures when i'm on the road. All others tablet could not do it as much as real computer.

    Now i can bring lightroom, Photoshop, Nikon camera control and more with me. It comes with a VGA adapter, so you can plug into a monitor if you whant a bigger screen, plus an HDMI output that i can use on the Hotels TV.

    It's a powerfull i7 CPU, a fast SSD hard drive, it boots so quick.

    The only thing that bothers me, it's the screen brightness, it's on "auto something" an i did not find the way to turn it off, it's probebly related to the OS.

    Use the machine mainly as a laptop, sometimes using the inside screen other times the outside screen. Really useful when I haven't got my specs with me, just use the outside screen and enlarge.

    Mostly use product for use with Microsoft office, e-mail and surfing the net. Cant fault the Taichi in anyway. Really fast.

      Comments about ASUS TAICHI 21 DH71 11.6" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer:

      Currently own Sony Vaio Duo Ultrabook. Wanted and needed the dual screen capability to provide product presentation.

      The Taichi boots immediately, and is very intuitive to utilize. key board has a nice feel, and pointer so much easier to utilize. Screen resolution is crisp and has no hangs when transitioning. Would have liked a bit more RAM, however, haven't come across a real issues. Client I was providing product presentation was more interested in my Taichi.

      As advertised, very slim profile and easy to handle when utilizing as a tablet.

      Selling my Sony now. Over all a 5 star product from ASUS again.

      I would never build a PC without an ASUS motherboard and graphics card so I decided to go with one of their netbooks (ultrabook) and it doesn't disappoint.

      This is my travel computer. This dual screen powerhouse works as a laptop notebook and/or a pad/tablet all in one. The only negative I have seen is the battery time does not seem to be as long as others but I have not yet tried other configuration settings to see if that has an impact.

        THe Taichi is everything I hoped it would be. The light weight and pen enabled touch screen is perfect for note taking in meetings and the full features of the laptop allow me to do real work. The integrated touch tablet makes content consumption much easier than on a standard laptop and I don't have to carry two products to get the benefits of a traditional laptop and a tablet. All in all, I like the Taichi very much.

          The delay in product launch by Asus worth it. the equipment is incredible. high quality packaging, product, speed, screen resolution, etc.. The only suggestion I would make would be to make the touch screen on both sides. I believe that the option was not to offer cost reduction, since the touch screen has a higher cost than conventional. a machine incredibly innovative. It's worth!
