When the lid is opened, the Taichi is just like any other notebook with a full size Qwerty keyboard and trackpad but the difference comes up when the lid is closed. With the closed lid, it becomes a tablet with multi-touch and stylus support. The laptop itself is very light and comes with the third generation Intel Core Processor, WiFi and Fast SSD storage. It supports Windows 8 natively. The laptop was pre-installed with Windows 8 at the Computex demo.
