ASUS unveils Taichi laptop with dual IPS displays

We’ve seen tablet/laptop hybrids before where the display can be rotated and closed in such a way that it can either pull double duty as a laptop or a tablet. If you thought that was hardly the most elegant solution around, ASUS has unveiled at Computex today the Taichi, a laptop computer from ASUS that comes with two displays. As pictured above, the laptop will feature a display on the inside and a display on the outside which will allow it to act as a tablet or as a laptop depending on the user’s needs.

Now according to ASUS, the Taichi is said to be as light and as thin as their Zenbook Ultrabook series of computers. No word on the specifics of the hardware just yet, but it is expected to be powered by Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors, sport a SSD under its hood and dual-band 802.11n WiFi. Also based on the rendering, it is safe to assume that the ASUS Taichi will come with Microsoft’s Windows 8 preloaded. The Taichi will be available in either 11.6” or 13.3” models but no word on when or how much it will cost upon its release. Assuming it really is as thin as the Zenbook, we’ll have to say that we are suitably impressed and wouldn’t mind getting our hands on it, but what do you guys think? Any takers?
