During Computex 2012, Asus unveiled a new one of a kind laptop running Windows 8 that is sure to be a game changer. Asus Taichi, the new laptop from Asus, comes with a double sided display so that you can use the computer even when the lid is closed.

Asus recently announced this laptop at Computex on Monday. This awesome double display laptop will come in two different sizes- 11.6 inch and 13.3 inch models. This laptop possess something which hasn’t been seen ever before, a laptop with two screens.

“With a touchscreen on the outside of the lid, the Taichi opens up a whole host of new mobile possibilities as it plays the role of both notebook and tablet,” says Asus on the crazy idea.

When the lid is opened, the Taichi is just like any other notebook with a full size Qwerty keyboard and trackpad but the difference comes up when the lid is closed. With the closed lid, it becomes a tablet with multi-touch and stylus support. The laptop itself is very light and comes with the third generation Intel Core Processor, WiFi and Fast SSD storage.
