ASUS Taichi Can Disguise Itself As A Macbook For Purposes Of Starbucks Onlookers

Posted in Miscellaneous on 01/02/2013 by Henry Taylor-Gill


Starbucks and Macbook are two words that are inseparable, so imagine what happens when you walk in with a clunky Windows laptop. The shame! You might as well be wearing a sign saying I prefer Costa Coffee. Luckily, if you have an Asus Taichi 21, all hope is not lost.

As Steve Paine points out (via Cult of Mac), the touchscreen on the back makes the perfect display area for an Apple logo, allowing you to make others think you have a flashy Macbook whereas you are in fact working secretly on a Windows 8 machine. For just under $1,300, it’s not a bad way to go.
