Of all that was launched at the Computex , I think the most interesting was the bet of Ultrabooks touchscreen Windows 8, which is already showing us but the end came were held by their manufacturers and some Intel executive.

Of the models showed the Asus TAICHI were the most captured the attention. However, after what he has revealed to Digitimes about price estimate based on the components that are integrated, I think they've been somewhat distant acquisition for which we were / are captivated. In detail, these components would be their prices that result in the brand new Asus TAICHI of 11.6 and 13.3:

  • Display (LCD double): $ 300
  • Intel Core i7: $ 230
  • Motherboard: $ 50 - $ 60
  • 6-cell battery: $ 40
  • SSD: $ 110
  • Chassis and internal components: $ 80
