When Lenovo made the IdeaPad Yoga 11 available (well, sort of), not only did fans of convertible ultrabooks rejoice, but the pressures on other manufacturers involved in this newly born niche increased.

Still, Asus for one is not in a hurry to put the 11.6-inch Taichi hybrid laptop up for grabs. At least that’s what PcWorld claims a spokesperson of the company told the website. According to the official, Asus still doesn’t have an exact release date in mind for the tablet/ultrabook, so we can expect to see it in stores by Christmas… or not.

No particular reason was offered as an explanation for this incertitude and, because we don’t like to speculate, we’ll leave it at that. What we know for sure is that the 11.6-incher will come in two flavors, one with an Intel Core i5 processor and a 128 GB SSD and the other with an i7 CPU and double the amount of storage. Both versions will sport dual 1080p IPS screens and the starting price is thought to be of around $1200-$1300.
