Awesome Interesting new Concept for Business Presentation and overall working

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 October 2014
  • Summary: I did a lot of research prior to purchasing this computer, and the dual screen with presentation mode was a key factor for my decision, since this is my main working notebook that I use with clients and occasional presentations. This ultra-book is awesome in appearance and really fast in operation ( office and regular internet tasks ) , and it is by far the best notebook I had.

You need to be tech savvy to use this. ...

LH, Amazon
4 October 2014
  • Summary: You need to be tech savvy to use this. Windows 8.1 is not immediately compatible, so you need to do research to upgrade the BIOS to use this: - Update Windows 8.0. If necessary, update 10 updates at a time instead of doing the whole enchilada. - Update to Windows 8.1. Outside screen will fail to work anymore.

Horrible customer service. Pray you don't have problems.

Melanie M., Amazon
26 September 2014
  • Summary: ASUS has the single worst customer service and warranty program I have ever had to deal with. If you do buy their product, you'd better pray that you don't have any problems with it, because you won't get any help from ASUS. In the year that I had one of their laptops, mine broke down 5 times. Every time I sent it into their 'service' center, the part they replaced failed again within months, or even weeks.

Luv this laptop

rincewind, Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: Would have rated this 4.5 Stars as few pieces are missing. Battery life is lower compared to other ultrabooks but not terribly, considering the discount on this i would say battery life is fair for similarly priced laptops (i5) and it charges up pretty fast , Windows 8.1 is probably not supported and this is my biggest grouse.

It's still a nice computer but

Joe, Amazon
23 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this Asus Taichi 21 on August 31st, and right out of the box, the touch screen in tablet mode, functioned intermittently. After updating the software from Windows 8 to 8.1 several times, tablet mode works for a time then stops. Have always thought of Asus as one of the top computer companies, but I'm not sure about that now. Having purchased a new computer and have it not function as advertised is definitely a bummer!

Problems immediatly from the start

Alive and Well, Amazon
6 September 2014
  • Summary: This is a product that is convenient for people who want something "decent" for having something to use while on travel to work. This is not a system for high processing or gaming. If you are looking for a gaming system you're going to want 2.6-3.+ CPU with minimum of 8GB of RAM. This is an excellent working machine not gaming.

Unfinished product

Samiup, Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: Unfinished product in experimental stage. Run windows update (like you always do) and your screen will malfunction, youl have to dig for a solution and install older versions of the gfx driver etc... just annoying.

Digital one night stand

Jeffrey B., Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: I really like the form factor of this machine. Althoiugh battery life is a little limited, the ability to rapidly flip the screen and the different modes that make presentations easy are great. The tablet screen, when it worked was easy to see and the resolution fantastic. Start up time in seconds. Storage at 128 GB a little limited for lots of stuff, but with a USB drive easy to augment with stuff not used frequently. BUT.
