• Asus Taichi Australian Hands-On: The Zooey Deschanel Of Windows 8 Convertibles

    The Taichi is Asusí flagship Windows 8 convertible. Itís a device with the form factor of an 11.6-inch laptop, with the added benefit of a touchscreen on the lid. The theory goes that when the device is closed, you can use it as a full-fledged Windows 8 (not RT) tablet. Even when the screen is open, you can share content to the lid display. That includes movies, presentations or whatever the person on the other side wants it to be.

    Thatís where it started getting weird for me.

    Say for example youíre at home with the kids and you need to get some work done, but they really want to watch the new Ice Age movie. Asus last night demonstrated that you could put the movie on the lid screen while you did all of your important Excel-related business on the other side. But thatís crazy, because it means the person youíre sharing content with canít do it sitting next to you, they have to be directly across from you. That means youíre removes the social element from content sharing. Youíre physically blocked off from the person youíre sharing stuff with, which just feels a little anti-social to me.

    This device makes much more sense if you use it by yourself. The screens are amazingly bright, the backlit keyboard is a blessing and the specs are just right.
