Asus unveiled its slew of new products Tuesday, showing off touch-capable PCs, hybrids, tablets and convertible Ultrabooks optimized to run on Microsoft's new Windows 8 operating system. Windows is getting a radical redesign, and many of Asus's new products follow suit, featuring dramatic differences from previous PC and tablet models. One example is the Taichi, a dual-screen laptop with two 1080p IPS screens. The convertible Ultrabook can be used in laptop mode or with the lid closed, like a tablet.

Ok take away what I don't like about Windows 8 and I still don't understand why people would want to touch their laptop or desktop screens? I have owned a tablet up until a few months ago. The main reason I sold it was I got tired of it. Touch screens are not that great and finger print magnets they most certainly are.
I don't want to be cleaning my laptop screen or my desktop screen.
I find the touchpad very easy to use and if need be a mouse can be used. I still am not sure why we seem to think everyone wants a touch screen? Has Microsoft actually done any study on this? Or is it just to make Windows separate itself from Apple?
