Asus Releases Taichi Notebook + Tablet Hybrid
ASUS today announces TAICHI, a sleek and stylish Ultrabook with an innovative back-to-back dual-screen design for unparalleled mobile flexibility. TAICHI features a powerful Intel Core quad-core processor and two back-to-back Full HD screens for sharing information in exciting new ways, all in a slender profile that tapers to a mere 3mm and weighs just 1.25kg.
With a unique dual-display design and stunning black-mirror finish, ASUS TAICHI combines the best features of both multi-touch tablet and Ultrabook— and switches seamlessly between the two simply by lifting a finger. Lid open, TAICHI is a powerful Ultrabook with a Full HD screen, backlit keyboard and large multi-touch touchpad for making light work of demanding productivity tasks. Lid closed, TAICHI becomes a lightweight tablet with a Full HD multi-touch screen, for easy and intuitive use on the move.
TAICHI’s back-to-back dual-screens can be used both simultaneously and independently for exciting new ways to share information, enjoy multimedia and work with apps. With the lid open and both screens upright, TAICHI can share a presentation or movie to an audience on both sides, removing the need for a bulky projector or clumsy external display. IPS display technology also ensures a brilliant image on both screens, with extremely accurate colour reproduction and 178° wide viewing angle for outstanding clarity. TAICHI also features a stylus for pinpoint precision with productivity and creative apps.
