    • Dual Displays, Four Modes of Use- ASUS TAICHI™ Ultrabook™ Convertible

      Two screens, one incredible PC. Featuring dual Full HD displays, the ASUS TAICHI™ offers four unique modes that deliver more than just the productivity of a notebook and the convenience of a tablet. Read on to find out:

      1. Notebook Mode
      Lift the lid and the TAICHI™ becomes a full- featured notebook with a backlit keyboard and multi-touch touchpad.

      2. Tablet Mode
      Close the lid and the TAICHI™ transforms into a multi-touch tablet giving you complete fingertip control.

      3. Mirror Mode
      Mirror mode shows the same image on both back-to-back screens, so it’s perfect for showing a presentation or sharing a movie without the need for a bulky projector or worrying about where everyone will sit.

      4. Dual-Screen Mode
