Asus's Taichi might be in a category unto itself, and it is by far the craziest new machine to be previewed yet. It doesn't have just one screen, but two. Yes, the laptop (if you can even call it that) has a double-sided IPS display.
Picture the outside lid of your laptop having a touch screen, and that's the Taichi. When the lid is closed, you can use the laptop like a tablet, and then when it's open you have the full keyboard and touchpad. But that's not all. The two screens can be used at the same time to do two totally different things, so someone can play a game on one side and on the other someone can surf the web. It is powered by Intel's third generation of Core processors and has a solid-state drive.
