You don't necessarily need to cross off the Asus Taichi dual-screen Ultrabook from your holiday wishlist, but if making such a list, you may want to add a few backup items. The reason? Asus has decided to delay U.S. shipments after previously being made available to pre-order on popular e-commerce sites like Amazon and Newegg. Now it's anyone's guess when the hybrid laptop will arrive.
Having trouble deciding between a notebook or a tablet? Asus invites you to splurge on both by announcing the Taichi at this year's Computex convention. The Taichi isn't unique for the fact that it's a hybrid notebook that pulls double duty as a tablet PC -- there are plenty of other products on the market that pull off the same trick -- but it's unlike anything else out there because it's the first hybrid with a double-sided IPS screen that we're aware of.
