It looks like a leak from ASUS is pointing toward their pricing structure on Windows 8-based tablets, where they start from $599. At $599, we should find the ASUS Vivo Tab RT (TF600T) which would sport a 10.1-inch Super IPS+ panel with a 178-degree viewing angle, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core SoC, and optional keyboard dock for a physical keyboard, as well as extended battery life. The Vivo Tab RT will also come with Office 2013 pre-loaded.

Sitting in the middle of the price structure, we find the ASUS Vivo Tab (TF810C) which sports an 11.6-inch Super IPS+ panel with the same 178-degree viewing angle, an Intel Atom Z2760 CPU, and has a starting price of $799. In the higher-end spectrum, we have the ASUS Taichi, with an MSRP of $1299. The Taichi features an 11.6-inch dual Full HD IPS panel with a 1920x1080 resolution, and thanks to its dual screen, it can be both a notebook, as well as a tablet - sexy.

The Taichi also sports Bang & Olufsen IcePower audio technology, as well as multi-touch dual panels which makes it "easy to share files between two users". The Taichi is definitely looking like a hot mess of a tech device, and it has my interest, that's for sure.
