ASUS Taichi dual-screen Windows 8 ultrabook delayed

asus-taichi-press.jpgThe ASUS Taichi has once again been delayed, leaving those hoping to nab one of the dual-screen ultrabook convertibles for Christmas hanging.

An ASUS spokesperson contacted PC, stating in an email that though the device would miss its November shipping date, the company still hoped to get it in stores before the end of December, in the US at least. No reason has been given for the delay.

It’s the second time the wacky laptop has been delayed, after first missing its initial October launch date, which would have coincided with the launch of Microsoft’s Windows 8.

Many US retailers have no topped taking pre-orders for the device, while UK retailer Expansys still has a November 19th release date on its pre-order page.

As well as sporting dual-screens (one touch, one regular), the lightweight laptop also packs in a 128GB SSD and 4GB RAM.

    The problem with the ASUS TAICHI is that the patent for that notebook belongs to a company called SEEDTRONIC that showed the concept for the first time before ASUS at CES 2012. They have a youtube video of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?…
