ASUS Launches Taichi Convertible Device in Singapore

ASUS has announced a fusion of notebook and tablet with innovative dual-screen design - the Taichi. Switching seamlessly between a slim 10-point multi-touch tablet and a fully featured Ultrabook, the ASUS Taichi is designed to be multi-faceted, with two sides transforming into four distinct usage modes: Notebook screen, tablet screen, mirror screen and dual screen.
