Asus TAICHI: Dual-screen Notebook/Tablet


Asus has just announced the Taichi notebook/tablet hybrid at Computex 2012 in Taipei. This latest technology runs Microsoft’s Windows 8 and it’s available in two versions: an 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch model, both system are powered by Intel’s 3rd Generation Ivy Bridge Core i7 CPU. Technically this notebook has a display on both sides of its lid, both features Super IPS with 1080 resolution and LED-backlit displays. Both screens are fully independent, so different things can be displayed on each one simultaneously.

You can use Asus TAICHI as a multi-touch tablet with stylus support while it is closed, but once you open it and reveal the QWERTY keyboard, you can use it as an Ultrabook.

Other than the Ivy Bridge processor, the Asus Taichi also features 4GB of RAM, SSD storage, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, Micro HDMI, mini DisplayPort, a 5-megapixel rear camera, HD front-facing camera, and it also supports dual-band WiFi 802.11n connectivity. As of now pricing and availability of this hybrid notebook/tablet is still unknown. It’ll probably be expensive by just looking on its design and specs.
