Designed for Entertainment and Comfort—Introducing the ASUS N and K Series Notebooks
As multimedia becomes an ever growing part of day-to-day computing usage, the importance of a highly capable entertainment notebook becomes even more significant. The desire to watch high definition videos and movies, complemented by true-to-life sound as well as high-speed connectivity which enables the sharing of multimedia with friends and family, is the motivation behind the new ASUS N Series.
The new ASUS N Series is designed for audiophiles who desire multimedia entertainment while on-the-move. Powered by the new Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, the ASUS N Series is equipped with USB 3.0 connectivity capable of multimedia transfer rates of up to 5GB per second—up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0’s 480MB per second rate. USB 3.0 also features an interrupt mechanism which provides additional power savings compared to the polling method of USB 2.0. With 900mA support for high-power devices, USB 3.0 also shortens the charging duration significantly for USB-chargeable devices compared to the 500mA of USB 2.0.
Another highlight of the new ASUS N Series is SonicMaster audio technology. Developed by the highly-trained audio experts in the ASUS’ Research and Development team, SonicMaster audio technology fine-tunes noise balance, volume and dynamic sound ranges, while minimizing environmental interference and sound distortion along with enhanced sound separation. These solutions combine to provide users with greatly improved audio quality that brings multimedia events to life on their Notebooks.
Finally, the ASUS N Series features Video Magic software which boosts the resolution of conventional DVDs up to full high definition 1080p from the standard 480p, as well as naturalizing the color and brightness of the images displayed.
Users who desire a more comfortable computing experience can look no further than the ASUS K Series. Designed with both user-centric and user-friendly amenities, the ASUS K Series is also equipped with the new Intel Core i3 and i5 processors, and features Palm-proof Technology which is capable of distinguishing between the users’ finger and palm. This prevents the cursor shifting while typing, the result of the palm accidentally grazing the touchpad. Palm-proof Technology does this by locking the touchpad when it detects a contact area larger than a fingertip, delivering ease-of-mind while typing. The K Series is also equipped with ASUS Power4 Gear, which adjusts the fan speed to provide a quieter and more serene computing environment. The sunken hinge design enables users to view their documents and multimedia without strain, while the keyboard provides a more tactile experience, as well as enhanced ergonomics for tireless typing.
U Series Bamboo Collection—Modern Computing with a Hint of Class
Continuing with the tradition of utilizing avant-garde materials in the construction of notebooks, ASUS introduces the new U Series Bamboo Collection—notebooks that boast the organic tactility, refreshing scent and minimalist aesthetics of bamboo. The U Series Bamboo Collection is a tastefully-designed computing companion that lends a touch of warmth to computing—a pleasant contrast to the inert and cold metal and plastic exteriors of typical notebooks. Nestled within an elegant brushed aluminum frame is a seamless chiclet keyboard, adding the final touches to a notebook of unparalleled style and cutting-edge design.
