8 Reasons For

Asus Portable PCs Have Good Reviews

2 in 1 laptops built by Asus have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just 2 in 1 laptops) and found that Asus also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to it.

Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most laptops of this spec and age have between one and two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Asus Taichi21 which has two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of laptops of a comparable age and spec to the Taichi21 is 200MHz, the fastest is 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 270MHz. The Taichi21 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency (350 megahertz) compared to most of the other portable PCs that are a similar age to the Taichi21.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution

The Asus Taichi21 has a maximum display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 98% more display resolution than the most common display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

This notebook PC's display resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) is in fact the best display resolution amongst all 2 in 1 laptops that came out around the same time as the Taichi21.

A 1024 x 768 pixels display resolution is the worst display resolution amongst similar types of notebook PC.

SSD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many 2 in 1 laptops that were released around the same time as it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo Yoga (SSD), or the HP Pavilion x360 (£382.66) (SSD).

802.11n WiFi Standard

This notebook PC has an 802.11a|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many 2 in 1 laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

4 Reasons Against

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Front Camera

Most of the other portable PCs of this type and age have a front camera, however the Taichi21 does not have a front camera.

There are a number of other notebook PCs which also have a front camera that you might also want to consider including the Toshiba U920t, or the Lenovo Yoga which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Asus Taichi21 does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the Taichi21 also do not have a full-size keyboard.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard to this laptop and we think the Toshiba U920t is also worth considering.
