Given the debacle on the G75VW missing 802.11ac, thunderbolt and the bad sound chip. And, now this Asus is really getting on my bad side. The companies going down slowly. And, quality been slipping alot too.
    I don't have any special knowledge on this, but I would guess that was the plan initially, then some kind of issue cropped up and forced mgmt to make a choice between delaying the launch or having a significantly flawed product going to market. IMO, I would rather wait a little longer.

    The construction of the Taichi is extremely complex, and specific components are in very short supply so the time to market is more difficult than anticipated unfortunately. For a product never made before it's unfortunate but not unexpected sorry

    The new G75VX which is out now has Thunderbolt, .ac option and sound drivers are far more mature.

    Who knew I actually absorbed so much info from those 8AM POM classes back in college?! Here I always thought I was barely managing to stay awake at such an ungodly early hour.

    Anyway, to those looking to buy a Taichi I will say that based off the advance unit I got to play with for a few minutes, you'll probably consider it worth the wait.

    Just like software! I haven't worked on hardware, but I am sensitive to your troubles, and I can't fault you, considering that software never gets done early. lol
