    where the heck is the 13 inch Taich?

    I really like Asus’ build quality and recent designs but 11 inch isn’t going to cut it for me…it kind of feels weird with 2 displays too. If you “forget” to hide the outside display everybody sees what you are doing…dangerous.

    So far I have to admit, I still haven’t found a great 13 inch convertible with a slim design, high-end features and a 1080p display.

    I think the biggest issue from all Windows tablets is the awful resolution that isn’t close to the iPad even though technically possible…for whatever reason very few even use 1080p displays despite descrete graphics and core i7.

      I’m in the same boat, I am looking for just the right 13-inch screened hybrid device. I don’t really need a stylus, and I can settle for the 1600 x 900 display the Yoga offers. So I might just go with that. Any word on the 13 inch release date for the Taichi? Do I need to first buy the device and then upgrade the ram, or will I be able to pre-order it with upgraded specs? Thanks for your help.
