Overview

A completely new cdesign in convertible tablet / laptops. Instead of a new style of hinge, ASUS have simply put two screens on the TaiChi. This is running Windows 8 with an Ultrabook core. Clearly it's not going to be available until later this year. We're adding news items, videos and specifications to this page as it develops. Check back regularly.

Alternatives to the ASUS TaiChi 31

Alternatives to the ASUS TaiChi 31
Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, 13.3", 1400gm
The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is markedly thinner and lighter than the Yoga 13 that started this 360-degree fold-back segment. An incredibly high resolution screen is the highlight. MicroHDMI and only two USB ports are disappointing. Great keyboard and battery life.

Samsung ATIV Q, 13.3", 1290gm
The Samsung ATIV Book Q is a hybrid with a completely new design, QuadHD+ (3200×1800) and weighing 1.2KG. Based on Haswell it should offer a lot of performance and great battery life. It comes with a dual operating system. Windows 8 and Android are provided with seamless switching making this a unique proposition at launch.

Dell XPS 12 Convertible, 12.5", 1520gm
From a design perspective the XPS Duo 12 is certainly a stylish alternative to a slider or dockable tablet but we are concerned about the weight of the device in tablet mode. Pricing is also quite high but that may not deter those looking for a stylish option. 47Wh battery is not the largest in this weight category.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, 13.3", 1530gm
The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga is a convertible touchscreen Ultrabook. The design allows the screen to be tilted all the way onto the back of the device. At 1.5KG it won't be a lightweight tablet but it can be used in 'easel' mode and of course, has all the touch capabilities available when used as a normal laptop. A 1600x900 IPS screen adds to the high-end specs. An 11" version is available (Yoga 11S from March 2013) with Core CPU. A Windows RT 11" version is also available.
