Delays push shipments to December, possibly 2013
Asus is putting off US shipments of its dual-screen ultrabook-slate hybrid until December. The Taichi ultrabook, with its main selling point of a screen on both sides of the notebook's lid, was debuted at Computex in June and expected to be shipped in November, but delays have pushed the release date further back in the calendar, and possibly into 2013.
All-in-one PC switches between form factors and operating systems
At Computex this week, Asus is showing off its new Transformer AiO, an all-in-one desktop PC that turns into a tablet upon undocking. The AiO is the latest in a line of dual-use devices and novel form factors from the Taiwanese manufacturer. The new PC doesn't just change form factors, though: when undocked, it switches from Windows 8 to Android 4.0.
