When it comes to bringing tablets and notebooks together, ASUS is the ultimate matchmaker. The company practically pioneered the hybrid category with the Android-based ASUS Eee Pad Transformer in 2011 and dominated Computex by rolling out half a dozen new devices based on Windows 8.
The ASUS Taichi is the best of this new generation of convergence computers, offering not only a compelling way to switch between tablet and notebook modes, but also a revolutionary technical solution to a common business problem. With a second, full HD touchscreen on the back of its lid, the Taichi easily turns into a Windows 8 tablet when closed.
The greatest benefit of the Taichi's second screen is that it allows you to show content–a presentation, a sales proposal or even a movie–to someone who's sitting across from you. Better still, the content you show on the lid doesn't have to mirror the primary screen. So when your wife instant messages you in the middle of your presentation, your client will only see the PowerPoint.
