86% Review Asus Taichi 31-CX003H Convertible Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Double-decker. Asus seems to have thought: "One Full HD IPS screen is nothing special" and simply builds two of the high definition screens into its Taichi 31 tablet-ultrabook. How the extravagant 13-incher fares in our tests and whether the tablet-ultrabook hybrid is compelling is revealed here.

65% ASUS Taichi 31 Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Asus Taichi 31 is clearly not aimed at the average joe. In fact, it’s probably a little too extravagant as a rich man’s toy as well. I think the video on Asus’s website sums up the demographic for the Taichi perfectly. The notebook is great if you’re in sales and need to impress some affluent client as the dual screen is best used in this scenario. Other than this, the Taichi 31 is a hard sell, especially at its asking price of Rs 1,39,999 for the Core i7 version.

60% Review: ASUS TAICHI 31 - Are Two Heads Better Than One?
Source: Techtree.com English
The ASUS TAICHI 31 is one of the coolest looking computing device we have laid our hands on. It looks great with its dual back-to-back screens and has good build quality. However, thinking from a practical point of view, its two Full HD IPS screens do not serve any real purpose past the initial wowing. The performance is good with no slowing down even with the antivirus running in the background, because of the Core i7 CPU and the SSD. However, a discrete graphics hardware is not present to facilitate decent gaming even at such a high price. The battery backup of 8.5 hours of normal usage promotes portability. Its 1-year global warranty ensures that the TAICHI 31 is in safe hands even when you take it abroad. The price tag of Rs 130,000 is still very hard to justify.

As an ultrabook, the Asus Taichi does offer a rather unique package. It does well on both the build quality as well as the performance front. But we don't really think the secondary display makes a lot of sense at this time, unless you want to show off often. You should essentially consider the Taichi 31 for the Full HD display, and the very good keyboard. If you aren't excited by either of those aspects, then you can consider a lot of other ultrabooks that cost half as much.

Asus reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3517U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.9 - 3.0 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1150 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

3537U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 2.0 - 3.1 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1200 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.5 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

1.6 kg:


78.29%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
