We gently chided the Zenbook Prime for its schizophrenic use of several different kinds of metal on its lid, palm rest, and bottom, but the Taichi rectifies this problem—it uses a handsome dark burgundy-ish aluminum throughout. There's absolutely no bending or flexing anywhere in the laptop, and it feels very sturdy.

The downside is that, between the metal body, the extra screen, and glass in the lid, the laptop is a bit heavier than some of its contemporaries—our The inch Taichi 31 weighs 3. This extra half-pound or so doesn't make a huge difference for a laptop that you sling in a bag, but it does make the computer that much more awkward to use as a tablet—the Taichi makes a better tablet than many of the inch convertibles we've seen, but it's still a bit thick and heavy compared to something like an iPad or a ASUS TAICHI 21 Display Calibration tablet. There are rubber feet on the bottom of the laptop, as is customary—ideally, these would keep it from sliding around on your desk.


However, when the screen is fully open, the rear edge of the lid makes contact with the desk and lifts up the rear base of the laptop just a bit. This angles the keyboard forward slightly, which we don't mind for typing, but it also lifts the laptop's rubber feet up off the desk, which seems to defeat the purpose. The rubber feet toward the ASUS TAICHI 21 Display Calibration of the laptop stay anchored on the desk, which prevents some sliding, but it's not as stable as other laptops you may be used to. Andrew Cunningham The laptop's port selection is mostly good, though it lacks a card reader—two USB 3.

A full-size VGA port and Ethernet jack are provided via included dongles. There's a volume rocker and screen orientation lock on the left side of the laptop for when it's in tablet mode, and there's a small power slider on the right side.

Fix: Asus Taichi Dual Screen Function not Working on Windows 8.1

We tend to prefer ASUS TAICHI 21 Display Calibration to buttons when they're positioned on one of the edges of a laptop, just because it reduces the likelihood that you'll press it on accident. Two small stereo speakers adorn the bottom of the laptop on its left and right sides, where the sound can be amplified by bouncing off your desk or muffled by bouncing off your lap. The computer also has two webcams one for each screen that are both suitable for video chats and not much else, as is generally the case in these Ultrabooks—Asus' spec sheet suggests that the p camera on the tablet side is superior to the p webcam on the laptop side, but to our eyes the picture quality was roughly similar.

Andrew Cunningham Like so many of the most interesting Windows 8 laptops, the Taichi is defined by its screen, and this laptop stands alone: By default, only the inner display is active in laptop mode and only the lid's display is active in tablet mode.

Closing and opening the lid will automatically turn off one screen and turn on the other—there's a capacitive Windows button on the lid that also lights up when the convertible is in tablet mode. Asus rates the internal screen and the touchscreen at and nits, respectively. While they don't get as bright ASUS TAICHI 21 Display Calibration other Ultrabooks we've seen, the color and viewing angles are excellent. There aren't many laptops that sit in between these two extremes, but at least the situation on the high end of the market has improved enough that a good display is the rule rather than the exception.

Andrew Cunningham The two screens can be managed through the same Windows control panel used to control multiple displays, but Asus also includes its own software that makes switching between the two easier—the TaichiHome app, which is mapped to the blue key to the right of F12, is the main hub for manipulating the screens as well as tying into a few other Asus services. TaichiHome can toggle four different ASUS TAICHI 21 Display Calibration for the laptop's two screens: Tablet mode which, remember, toggles on automatically when you close the lid can be engaged when the lid is open to allow you to use the touchscreen while the base of the laptop serves as a stand.

Mirror mode displays the same image on both screens, allowing someone looking at the back of the laptop to see what you're doing and vice versa in this mode, both the keyboard and trackpad and the touchscreen can be used to control the computer.

ASUS TAICHI 21 Display Calibration, "dual screen mode" extends the desktop to the screen on the lid, useful for things like PowerPoint presentations where you want to show someone something but don't necessarily want them to see everything that's on your screen. Asus' implementation of the convertible concept does avoid some of the pitfalls that other laptops are susceptible to: The biggest drawback for those used to touch is probably the fact that the interior screen is non-touch.

If you're used to reaching out and interacting with the screen even in laptop mode as I have become accustomed to doing over a few months with Windows 8 laptopsyou'll have to unlearn some behaviors to interact with the Taichi. Another potential problem is the fact that the lid's touchscreen is exposed at all times—if you've got it in your bag ASUS TAICHI 21 Display Calibration something that could scratch it, or if you set something on top of it or do some other fairly innocuous thing you could do with a regular laptop, it might cause problems for the Taichi.
