ASUS 21-DH71 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.

Dual 11.6" Full HD IPS Displays

The outer screen supports 10-finger touch support, 256 levels of pressure sensitivity and handwriting recognition with an included stylus.

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

    ASUS 21-DH71 Reviews

    TAICHI 21 DH71 11.6" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome Product! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innovator - Inovador 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 portugus: A espera pelo lanamento do produto valeu a pena. O equipamento muito inovador com a integrao de ultrabook com tablet. Leve, design arrojado, rpido e com alta resoluo nos dois monitores. Diria que contra haveria apenas a autonomia de bateria, que no passou de 2,2 horas, bem como a tela interna no ser touch. No h como no despertar a curiosidade das pessoas a sua volta com um equipamento de design diferenciado como este.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Innovative and surprising! 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asus Taichi 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, lightweight ultrabook Compact, lightwieght and extremely fast ultrabook for transfering and editing photographs while traveling. 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taichi marvellous 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.
