Audio

Audio

TAICHI™ features ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, developed with the world-renowned Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. With a wider frequency range, SonicMaster sound delivers clearer vocals and resonating bass. It also utilizes microphones with positional audio to detect and suppress background noise to ensure spoken communication is loud and clear.

Visual

Visual

"Stunning" doesn’t begin to describe it. Actually, it does. TAICHI offers a spectacular HD experience with apps, games and movies, thanks to two 1080p Full HD displays. IPS technology ensures a brilliant image with accurate colors and crisp contrast, while the 178-degree wide viewing angle keeps each screen crystal-clear, even when seen from the side. The exterior screen also features multitouch functionality, so the notebook can double as a tablet when the panel is closed.

Aesthetics

Aesthetics

With an innovative back-to-back display, the TAICHI stands out from the crowd. But its dual screens aren't the reason it turns heads. Along with unmatched versatility, TAICHI also features a beautiful black-mirrored finish and a lightweight, slender profile that tapers to a razor-thin .10".

Touch

Touch

TAICHI is designed for touch. In tablet mode, its 10-point capacitive multitouch screen delivers fast and responsive fingertip control, while the large Smart Gesture touchpad makes apps in notebook mode just as intuitive to use. It also features an optional stylus for precision control and flexible handwritten note taking.

Performance

Performance

As versatile on the outside as it is powerful on the inside, TAICHI delivers outstanding multitasking performance and smooth multimedia playback, thanks to powerful Intel® Core processor. Plus, USB 3.0 provides blazingly fast data transfers with external storage and faster mobile device recharging, as well as dual-band Wi-Fi for turbo-charged wireless connectivity on 5GHz networks.
