    ASUS announces a dual-screen ultrabook called the Taichi at Computex 2012 in Taipai. It has a multi-touch screen on the outer face of the lid. They said: "The ASUS Transformer Book is the world’s first convertible ultrabook — allowing users to instantly switch between a ultrabook and a tablet by simply detaching the screen"
    Is the Taichi a notebook or tablet? It's both. Both of its displays are 1920x1080 resolution, there's two cameras, two USB 3.0 port, a mini VGA, mini HDMI and DisplayPort ports, and NFC — all powered by an Intel Core i7 processor (Ivy Bridge), 4GB of RAM, and SSD storage. It'll ship in 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch models (just like Apple does with the MacBook Air). ASUS says that its TAICHI ultrabook/tablet will come in 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch.
    There's also a nifty "mirroring" feature that'll enables both displays at the same time - perfect for presentations.
