The first day of Computex 2012–Taiwan’s huge tech showcase–provided a sneak peek at the future of PCs. We found an Ultrabook with Nvidia graphics inside and an 18.4-inch all-in-one that switches between Windows 8 and Android 4.0. But the show really belongs to tablet-laptop combos like the back-flipping Acer Iconia W510 and the ASUS Taichi, which sports two screens. Here are the highlights from a very exciting (and surprising) Day 1 from Computex.
It's the first two-faced notebook. At first glance, the ASUS Taichi opens up to reveal an internal display like any other clamshell on the market, but this Windows 8 notebook boldly houses a secondary display that shines out from the back of the lid. What's more, that alternative screen packs a 1920 x 1080 resolution and can mirror or extend the internal screen, giving users a vibrant option for making presentations to clients.
