You've seen notebooks and tablets, but you've never seen anything like the ASUS Taichi21. With dual displays and four modes of use, it offers the performance of a notebook when you need it and the convenience of a tablet when you don't. No matter how you use it, it's a fun and exciting way to get hands-on with the intuitive touch interface of Windows 8.
Lift the lid and you've got a powerful and full-featured notebook with a backlit keyboard and multi-touch touchpad.
Lid closed, the Taichi21 instantly transforms into a multi-touch tablet for complete fingertip control or writing and sketching with the included stylus.
In this mode you can show the same image on both back-to-back screens—perfect for sharing a presentation or showing a movie.
In dual-screen mode the Taichi21 becomes two computers. Each back-to-back screen can be used separately as a notebook and tablet with different apps.
