Do you want more than a glowing piece of produce on the back of your laptop? Asus sure thinks so and it has just introduced the Asus Taichi to the world. It has a second display that covers the entire back cover. This is certainly the first time I’ve seen this.

To be available in 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch variants, the Asus Taichi has a double-sided IPS display so that you can still use the computer when the lid is closed. Presumably, when the lid is open, you do your computing on the regular screen and share your work with everyone else at the coffee shop with the display on the back. The two displays are independent.

And yes, the back display is a touchscreen, so you can use it like a tablet when the notebook is closed. There is stylus support and we can only assume that they’re going with Windows 8 for this creation. The Taichi is said to be “as light and thin as the Asus Zenbook” and it’ll come powered by 3rd-gen Intel Core processors, SSD storage, and dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi.

I just hope that you get a really good protective sleeve for your Taichi, because I can totally envision far too many people cracking that secondary display.

    I am waiting for this piece. With dual screen many things are possible. I hope if anyone of them is touch screen.

    Nah, that is negative.  A friend who’s a traveling salesman tried unsuccessfully to develop one of these about 10 years ago.  Nothing better for making presentations across the table from a few key people!  I like it!

    I am not sure why the writer is being so negative of having the second display.   This is no different than having a tablet and people is as likely to crack those as it’s lighter and more portable than this.  

    Stop worrying too much and embrace the freaking technology.

      Thanks for your feedback.  But hardly negative, more of a precautionary note..
