ASUS has announced a fusion of notebook and tablet with innovative dual-screen design - the Taichi.

Besides incorporating SonicMaster technology co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, the Taichi also includes a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with 1080p Full HD video recording and a secondary 720p HD video camera, along with a noise-suppressing array microphone for crystal-clear video chat in challenging
