ASUS TAICHI 21 WINDOWS 8.1 DRIVERS, San Francisco, CA, USA

The Taichi 21 is a well-built, ASUS TAICHI 21 stylish looking system. It's similar, in most respects, to another Asus product, the Asus . The brushed aluminum construction is sturdy and feels luxurious. The backlit chiclet keyboard is comfortable to type on, and the one-piece clickable trackpad is smooth and responsive—or it least it was some of the time. Occasionally, the smooth cursor control would spaz out, skittering around the screen when my finger was kept still. A driver update seems to have fixed the problem.

Aside from the unique dual display setup, the Taichi 21 gets the same excellent Bang & Olafsen audio and Waves MAXXAudio software enhancement found in the Asus UX32VD-DB71. In our testing, the sound quality was superb, with clear tones even at high volume and bass as rich as it gets without a subwoofer in the mix.

ASUS TAICHI 21 PERFORMANCE

When the second display is turned off using the display-swapping Taichi Button on the keyboard the lid of the Taichi 21 looks very similar to the Gorilla Glass-covered lid of the HP Envy 14 Spectre Best Price at Amazon. It's worth noting, however, that the interior display has no touch functionality, leaving you with just the keyboard and mouse to maneuver through Windows 8 during regular use.

Our review unit came equipped with an 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-3517U ultra-low-voltage processor designed for use in tablets and ultrabooks, and paired with 4GB of RAM. This is a step up from other convertible hybrid ultrabooks we've reviewed, which have all featured Intel Core i5 processors. The difference can be seen in Cinebench results, where the Taichi 21 scored 2.81 points, ahead of the Core i5-equipped the Sony Duo 11 (2.40) and Lenovo Yoga 13 (2.19).


Similar performance was seen in real-world applications: The Taichi 21 completed our Handbrake test in 1 minute 17 seconds and Photoshop CS6 in 4:50, notably faster than both the Lenovo Yoga 13 ( 1:31 in Handbrake; 6:35 in Photoshop) and Sony Duo 11 (1:25 in Handbrake; 6:31 in Photoshop).

Dual Screen ASUS TAICHI 21

The defining characteristic of the Taichi 21 is not its audio, or is it the keyboard, or the mouse, or anything else you would expect on a normal ultrabook. Instead, in addition to the 11.6-inch 1920-by-1080 resolution matte-finish IPS panel display that you see when the laptop is open, you also get a second 11.6-inch 1080p IPS touch screen built into the lid. Covered with a scratch-resistant sheet of Gorilla Glass and offering tracking for both 10-finger touch and an N-trig digital pen, the Taichi 21 opens like a laptop, but closes to become a tablet. 

The screen on the lid can be touched and tapped just like the standard touch screens seen on the Dell XPS 12 and the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Best Price at Amazon. The addition of a digital pen also improves the experience, providing fine cursor control as needed and an intuitive option for those who want to draw or take advantage of Windows' baked in handwriting recognition or other handwriting-friendly apps. The tablet lid isn't without its drawbacks, however. The Gorilla Glass screen may ward off scratches, but it attracts smudges like crazy. And, just as we saw with the Lenovo Yoga 13, the 16:9 aspect ratio is awkward for use as a tablet, being just a little too heavy for one-handed use and too long to comfortably cradle in one arm.

The two displays can also be used simultaneously, first as a mirrored display to share presentations and video, or the two displays can be used independently. With two independent displays you can do things like show a PowerPoint slideshow on the outward facing screen, and advance the slides with a simple swipe, while having a document of presentation notes open on the other side.


Features ASUS TAICHI 21 

The collection of ports and features found on the Taichi 21 is nearly identical to Asus' Zenboook systems, with a few notable changes. In addition to two USB 3.0 ports (one with power for charging devices), a combination headphone and microphone jack, mini VGA, and micro HDMI port, you will also find physical controls on the edges of the laptop for power, volume, and switching displays. 

These controls, which would normally be function buttons on the keyboard, have been added to the edges of the laptop for use in tablet mode.

Asus also includes branded basics like a calculator, converter for units of measurement, and a sample of Asus WebStorage cloud backup. Additionally, the Taichi 21 includes Microsoft Office Starter 2010, Skype, SuperNote (which allows you to take notes using your own handwriting), and FreshPaint, a stylus-friendly drawing program. 

ASUS TAICHI 21 DISPLAY


Ultimately, the Asus Taichi 21 (Taichi 21-DH71) is a decent ultrabook, with an innovative design that may not have broad appeal. That's a shame because the glass-backed lid looks great, and the Zenbook-like design of the laptop echoes Asus's best systems. Unfortunately, in this period of dual-device confusion, the attitude of "let's throw something at the touch screen and see what sticks" puts the Taichi 21 in the unenviable position of being a good ultrabook and a mediocre tablet, and not everyone will appreciate the combination of the two as a dual-display device. 

Because it's a tablet as well as a laptop, the Taichi 21 is outfitted with a few sensors that laptop's don't normally offer, such as accelerometer, e-compass, gyroscope, and an ambient light sensor. Two cameras are available for video chat or snapping photos, with a 720p webcam above the regular laptop display and a second 5MP camera with auto-focus on the tablet (lid) side.

LUXURY CLASS WITH ASUS TAICHI 21

The Taichi 21 utilizes Intel's integrated graphics solution, which provides more than enough power for your average Web browsing, video watching, and even basic gaming, but it's not sufficient for high-end games. It cranked through 3DMark11 with scores of 1,243 points (Entry) and 207 (Extreme), but couldn't produce playable scores in either of our gaming tests, even at lower resolution and detail settings.

Our review unit was also equipped with a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD), offering faster performance than traditional spinning hard drives, quicker booting, near-instant wake times, and because the drive has no moving parts, it's better suited for use in a device that will be picked up, moved, held at odd angles, and potentially dropped during use

In addition to the Windows 8 operating system, you'll find a few extra programs on the SSD, but not many. Asus offers two different tools for learning the ins and outs of the Taichi 21--> Asus Tutor for Taichi, which offers tutorials for all of the Taichi's unique display modes as well as Windows 8 functions and settings, and Asus covers the Taichi 21 with both a one-year warranty covering parts and labor and one year of accident coverage.

USER REVIEWS ASUS TAICHI 21 FROM AMAZON

I have come to find out that the laptops with the touchscreen right in front of the keyboard has become an unused option for myself, especially when you have a good windows 8 compatible touchpad. The new touchpads have all the screen moves with no arm movement to reach out to the screen, and once you learn to use the efficiency of the shortcuts there is no real reason to take the time to reach up to the screen. (I did less and less over time.) I did however want the touchscreen tablet version for the new OS and the desire for the touchscreen but not in the way that it is presented behind a keyboard. The touchpad is great for taking notes, touchscreen games, Drawing, and just plain fun to use with the windows 8 fluent OS. I really do love it. For those of you not liking the windows 8 yet, give it time. I have come to love it for its efficiency and ability to go PC, Tablet, Phone. With the learning curve mostly past me, there is nothing else that compares in my opinion. I would think that everyone would feel the same way once they put the time in and get past the learning curve of the new Awesome OS. I certain would think so at least.
ASUS Taichi 21-DH51 11-Inch Convertible 2in1 (OLD VERSION) 

This leading me to why I love the Taichi so much. I have a great ASUS Zenbook with a great touch pad and I blow through everything windows 8 style and never even think about wanting to have to reach up to the screen. There is no reason I have to do so. I am writing Documents, Surfing the web, Productivity, anything keyboard related I really have no need for the screen to be a touch screen in front of me. Now, when I am done and I have a craving for a touchscreen or I just want consumption with a touchscreen I close the lid and Voila, a tablet for bedtime, table, anywhere. I play with the stylus (try that upright with a keyboard in front of you.) I swipe through the games, web, and I love to draw (have you tried the Fresh Paint app by the way). The awesome stylus the Taichi comes with is the perfect tool for the tablet.
