Overview
  • 1Description

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.

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 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-3517U processor. There are also 4GB of DDR3 onboard RAM, a 256GB solid state drive, 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, ASUS SonicMaster technology and an integrated webcam.

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
