3 out of 5 eggsBeautiful, functional, yet buggy

Pros: Great screen quality on both sides. touch screen is suprisingly bright outside while inner screen does not disappoint with its matte finish. The fact that this thing has dual screens really turns heads.
I really enjoy the features Asus puts in their Trac pads and the backlit keyboard has a great premium feel.

Cons: Screen switchover is not always seamless and often difficult to work with.
I have never had this issue with any of the dozens of Windows 8 laptops I have owned/worked on. It displays multiple different errors as excuses ranging from "not enough space" to simply "something went wrong"... well thanks Windows for identifying my problem... (sarcasm)

3 out of 5 eggseverything works

Pros: Sleek design, fast, works nicely as advertised

Cons: My laptop came scratched in few areas that I'm a little annoyed about. Would've expected this if it was refurbished but it's brand new.... I'm not sure if it's worth my time and hassle of returning it for minor scratch on a supposedly brand new notebook. Don't understand how these kinda things happen in a sealed plastic brand new laptops. QC control perhaps Asus.?

5 out of 5 eggsBest Convertible Ultrabook

Pros: This is the best convertible ultrabook on the market, especially considering the price. The ability to seamlessly go back an forth between a tablet and a laptop has revolutionized how I use my computer for work and play. When discussing a topic with my colleagues, I can easily project a graph or video, so that everyone can see what I'm referring to. The active digitizer is great, and I use it to take notes directly on articles or presentations.

Lastly, this is an incredible deal. In addition to being a high quality maching, with various bell and whistles, the Taichi comes with an active digitizer stylus, carrying case, various usb dongles, some free cloud storage, and a 1 year accidental breakage guarantee from ASUS.

Cons: The SD card does not push in all the way. Hence, it is not flush with the computer. Not a deal breaker, but slightly frustrating, since I was hoping to semi-permanently leave a 126G SDXC in the laptop to functionally double the SSD space.

Other Thoughts: Many people have commented on the compatibility issues with Windows 8.1. It's a simple fix with the new BIOS update. Just follow the directions from some of the other reviews on this site.

Some people have commented on how only the outer screen is a touch screen. Personally, I prefer this. I primarily need a full laptop that can also be used as a tablet. Hence, when I'm typing on the keyboard, I do not need a touch screen. For settings where a touch screen is more convenient, I close the lid and continue working. Additionally, I'm sure this helps keep the price and weight lower as well.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: * A great ultrabook for the price (700 on sale)
* Tablet mode is fun with the digitizer
* High build quality
* Beautiful matte screen (on the inside)
* Great keyboard
* Fun and unique.

Cons: * You'll need to flash the bios after installing Windows 8.1. Just go here...
Choose Windows 8.1, then download the bios file and intel graphics driver files. Extract bios file to USB, then boot into the bios. You can update it from there. Once updated, install the Intel graphics driver. This whole process shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes. Afterward, everything works great.

Other Thoughts: Like any other laptop/tablet hybrid, it is too heavy to be used solely as a tablet for long unless you set it on something or use both hands to hold it.

There are other hybrid laptops that go beyond 1080p, but I've read that many people are not happy with that high of a resolution at such a small screen size. 1080p on this 13.3 inch is perfect for me.

Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsSecond Review

Pros: Comes with protective case and the charger will actually fit into the little pocket inside but turn the the tablet screen away from it so you don't scratch it. Also has 1 year of accidental damage protection from Asus with out any extra purchase. The dual screen can let your kids watch a movie while you work on your laptop.

Cons: You have to monkey with it to get it upgraded. Only real downside.

Other Thoughts: Upping this to 4 eggs since they released the patch and properly notified customers of it's availability.
Would have given 5 without that snafu. Have built countless Asus based machines over the last 30 years so expectations are pretty high and I don't give them much slack. They really have done a good job on this machine

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

It's great to know that you have been a loyal ASUS Customer. I do appreciate that you continuously patronize and believe with ASUS products. I apologize for the inconvenience the long upgrade process to WINDOWS 8.1 may have caused you. The WINDOWS Update server gets lots of hit on a daily basis that may cause connection speed and may result in a long process time for the OS upgrade. Should you need further assistance, please email me at and write down service# 3771694 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Convertable Laptop Ever

Pros: - Fast
- Slim
- Dual Screens
- Sleek Metal and Glass design
- Auto-adjusting back-lit keyboard
- Lots of nice accessories included

Cons: - Buggy screens (But FIXED in bios 209 update)
- Wish it was quadcore (but battery life would likely be compromised)
- Battery life could be better (Not really a con, for what this is, the battery life is just fine)
- Pixel density could be a bit better

Other Thoughts: This thing is AMAZING! So professional looking. I get complements on it all the time. People are like, what is that?! The metal bezel around the glass is what makes look like a luxury item. Better then anything Apple has IMO. This thing even comes with a nice carrying case and is thin enough to be carried around like a tablet.

I hope ASUS keeps making these so that I can get the next generation once I'm done with this one. I highly recommend this one!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Love that it is a tablet and ultrabook! I am an IT professional and a photographer. It is wonderful in both arenas. Who needs a Wacom cintiq any more. It is also great for the IT side when I have to travel to other locations to do work. Light, powerful and great design. I like it much better than the lenovos. Works great with 8.1 now since the bios update to 209. Price was amazing! $750 for an ultrabook tablet! I would definitely buy one for personal use.

Cons: Battery life isn't the greatest but I knew this going in. Still gets the job done. Other people say it is negative that the inside is not touch but I disagree. The touch pad with gestures works great for me, then I don't have to pick my hand up off the keyboard/touchpad area.

Other Thoughts: It is the best of all worlds. It is not perfect in all but I doubt there is one perfect ultrabook/tablet out there. As long as you know the limitations ahead of time, I cannot say anything bad about this product. It was a little rough at first with going to windows 8.1 but it is all ironed out now.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Taichi 31

Pros: Very Nice Ultra book Highly recommended.

Cons: Could have better battery life. Can't use both screens at same time. When in dual screen mode second screen acts just like an extended screen. So if one person is navigating the mouse and then someone touches the touch screen . the mouse will jump to the touch screen.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to install BIOS update 209. Also install all windows updates before upgrading to Windows 8.1. This will fix any screen problems that is caused by the 8.1 upgrade.

I hope past reviewers will update their scores when they apply this fix because this is a really nice ultra book and deserves a higher score.
