ASUS Announces New Windows 8 Lineup Including Dual-Screen Taichi
Just when Apple’ iPad Mini sets the gadget market ablaze, ASUS unveils a stylish range of Windows 8 devices only to make it burn hotter. The PC manufacturers called for a press event on Tuesday in London while we are awaiting Microsoft’s Windows 8 event on October 25, 2012 in Manhattan, New York. ASUS unveiled a whole new range of Windows 8-based devices which range from touchscreen notebooks, convertible tablet and a dual-screen device and a new lineup of All-in-One PCs. ASUS has also revealed its plans to start shipping majority of those Windows 8 machines within a few weeks; with rest of them will take about first quarter of the next year to make retail debut.
The apparently smartest of the lot, ASUS Taichi steals the show for obvious reasons. It is a dual-screen Windows 8 ultrabook that alternates being a tablet and a laptop. Do you need more reasons? Well, you can use it as an Ultrabook until you close the lid when the touchscreen on the lid will make the device work like a tablet. Although you can use both the screen at the same time and will mirror a PowerPoint presentation to client or a product image to a buyer when you are viewing on the laptop in the sharing mode. This Windows 8-based ASUS convertible tablet includes an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, 256GB SSD memory storage and 4GB memory. The 11.6-inch with a Intel Core i7 version of ASUS Taichi will be available for £1,499.99.
