The IPS display technology also brings brilliant images to both screens with a 178° wide viewing angle for clarity. TAICHI also features a stylus for work and play.

Powered by the Intel® quad-core i7 or dual-core i5 processor with 4GB memory, Intel® HD 4000 graphics and a choice of blazingly fast 128GB or 256GB SSD storage, the TAICHI also comes with dual-band Wi-Fi with Intel® WiDi and Bluetooth 4.0, offering high-performance wireless connectivity. Two USB 3.0 ports provide full support for the latest high-speed external devices.

Integrated with the TAICHI is the ASUS SonicMaster technology, developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, delivering astonishing sound quality. TAICHI also features a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with 1080p Full HD video recording and second 720p HD video camera, a noise-suppressing array microphone for crystal-clear video chat in challenging environments and up to 5 hours’ battery life (measured with Wi-Fi web browsing).
