THE TWO SCREENS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - GG CHOICE -

Though it looks like any other Ultrabook, it won’t take you long to no­tice the shiny top on the clamshell. This is the tablet side of the de­vice with an 11.6-inch 1080p dis­play. Yes, there is a sec­ond screen on the out­side, thank­fully un­der a sheath of Corn­ing Fit Glass.

Open the clamshell and flick the power tog­gle on the right to bring this de­vice to life.

You click a ded­i­cated Taichi Home but­ton to open the screen con­trols. This is where you de­cide how you want to use the screens. You have the op­tion to choose the reg­u­lar lap­top mode, or mir­ror the lap­top screen out­side as well or have two dif­fer­ent things on both screens.

There are a few catches though. Only, the outer tablet screen has touch, the in­ner screen is just 11.6-inch 1080p with no touch. This is a damp­ener, es­pe­cially since the lap­top side will be your pri­mary screen for all prac­ti­cal pur­poses. Then, we were un­able to do dif­fer­ent things on both screens. By ex­tend­ing the pri­mary screen we could show a pre­sen­ta­tion or open a video on the back screen, but not work on any­thing there.

The Taichi makes sense for those who want to use a lap­top as a tablet, de­spite the weight of the de­vice.
