Ultrabook The TAICHI 21 DH51 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.

This ASUS TAICHI 21 Ultrabook also features the Windows 8 (64-bit) operating system. With a redesigned Start screen and an emphasis on tiles that update real-time and capacitive touchscreen support, Windows 8 provides a unique user experience.

The system is powered by a dual-core Ivy Bridge 1.7GHz Intel Core i5-3317U processor. There are also 4GB of DDR3 onboard RAM, a 128GB solid state drive, 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, ASUS SonicMaster technology and an integrated webcam.

Performance

Dual-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core Power
This ASUS TAICHI 21 Ultrabook is powered by a dual-core Ivy Bridge 1.7GHz Intel Core i5-3317U processor. The processor can also be overclocked up to 2.6GHz, 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

      By sandy

      Comments about ASUS TAICHI 21 DH51 11.6" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer:

      I love this product
      it's sleek, slim, and easy to carry
      also the front turns into a touchscreen!
      and it's backlit! that's the best part!
      the cons: no cd slot, and because it's a specialized size, it was a bit hard to find a case and forget abt a privacy/protective screen

          Home computer for my wife.

          Perfect size- not too big nor too small.

          Laptop and tablet all in one.

          Replaces an iPad.

          Negative: Fingerprints show easily due to color.
