THE TWO SCREENS
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.
