Asus Taichi 21 dual-screen notebook hits the FCC

The Asus Taichi 21 is an unusual notebook with two screens: one on either side of the lid. With the lid up, the Taichi looks like a typical 11.6 inch notebook. Close the lid and it looks like a slightly bulky Windows 8 tablet.

Asus hopes to ship the dual-screen notebook by the end of the year, and this week the Asus Taichi 21 slipped through the FCC website on its way to store shelves.

There aren’t a lot of surprises in the FCC documents. Asus has been showing off the tablet for a while and we already know it has a starting price of $1299, an Intel Ivy Bridge processor, up to 256GB of storage, and two 1920 x 1080 pixel displays.

You can use one screen at a time, display the same content on both, or display different content on each screen. That means you can set up the laptop on a tablet and play a game or write a document on one screen while someone sitting across from you watches a presentation or a movie.

Only the screen on the lid has a touch panel. The screen that faces the keyboard is just a normal display.

The FCC photos do confirm that the laptop has a 35 Whr, 3200mAh battery. Asus says the Taichi 21 should get up to 5 hours of battery life.
