The laptop features a 10.1-inch IPS multi-touch touchpad with wide 178-degree viewing angles and has a resolution of 1,366x768 pixels. Not much has been said about its GPU, but Asus says that it will be using Intel HD (Gen 7) Graphics.

The detachable tablet contains 2GB of RAM, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and no back camera. There are ports available on the tablet for Micro-HDMI, Micro-USB, a microSD card and headphones.
