The cynoclosure of all eyes this year at Computex without a doubt was the Asus Taichi, a curious-looking, yet sleek, laptop with not one but two screens. The dual-display Windows 8 laptop/tablet hybrid boasts IPS / FHD displays. The outer lid display works as a multitouch tablet while the inner functions as a regular laptop display. Each screen even has its own
camera associated with it. Both screens are Led-backlit, offer a 1080p resolution and can operate independently of each other. So, in fact two people
can create and consume content on the device at the same time. The Windows 8 running device will launch later this year with an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM, SSD (solid- state drive) storage, two USB 3.0 ports, micro-hdmi, mini Displayport, dual-band 802.11n Wi-fi, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a frontfacing HD camera. Asus Taichi will be available in
13.3-inch and 11.6-inch sizes.
