There's no denying that tablet computers have carved out quite a substantial niche over the past couple of years, but they're not exactly an ideal productivity solution for those of us who spend much of our lives tapping away on a keyboard. Lenovo generated a flutter of excitement at CES 2010 when the company revealed its intention to combine tablet convenience with the power of a notebook in the form of the U1. Sadly, this concept hasn't yet made it beyond prototyping, but ASUS actually delivered somewhat similar functionality with its Eee Pad Transformer series. Now, the company has revealed a new ultrabook that also has a multi-touch tablet on the outer face of the lid. Full specs for the TAICHI are a little thin at the moment, but here's what we do know.  Read More

NVIDIA has been promising to put some impressive processing power in the palm of our hands with its Tegra 3 processor – previously known as Kal-El – for a while now. Teasing us with demos of dynamic lighting enabled by the chip’s quad-cores and impressive energy efficiency statistics made possible by a fifth “companion core.” While ASUS led us to believe that it would be launching the first tablet to be powered by the Tegra 3 – the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime - on November 9, it appears we’ll have to wait just a little bit longer.
