CES Showcase: Asus Announces Four New Laptops

12 thumbs up

It's CES time and that means a flurry new products will be hitting the streets soon. Today, we attended the Asus 2010 CES Event at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas where company chairman Jonney Shih revealed the company's latest products and technology.  Here's a quick preview of what was on display... 

   
Asus NX90, Audio by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower

Let's get right to the good stuff. The NX90 is a multimedia notebook that combines modern design and cutting-edge technology. Designed by Bang & Olufsen Chief Designer David Lewis, the NX90 features a polished aluminum exterior and palm rest that contrast the matte-black keyboard and dual touchpads. Two speakers featuring ICEpower technology flank a large display. Exclusive Sonic Focus technology helps to ensure that all audio is reproduced as flawlessly as possible, according to Asus. The NX90 also offers a unique way to interact with the system, in the form of dual touch pads. These work in concert with the Rotation Desktop software to provide users with an intuitive DJ-like control. Specific hardware options consist of Intel's Core i7 820QM or 720QM processor, up to 12GB DDR3 1066, 18.4" LED display, NVIDIA GT 335M, dual HDD support, Blu-Ray, and USB 3.0. Expect to drop well over $2K for this beast.



 
 Republic of Gamers G73Jh Notebook

You knew a high performance gaming laptop was coming and here it is. The Republic of Gamers G73Jh was inspired by the angular lines of stealth fighter jets, much like some desktop enclosures released last year. High end components will be readily available to match the cutting edge exterior as consumers will be able to configure the G73Jh with Intel's Core i5 / i7 processors, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, a 17.3" display, and ATI's Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics. We plan to take this baby out for a spin as soon as samples are available, so stay tuned.


   
Eee PC Seashell Karim Rashid Collection

Karim Rashid is a renowned designer based in New York. Don't worry if you've never heard of him, we hadn't either. The goal of the Eee PC Seashell Karim Rashid Collection is to marry high tech with high fasion and realize Karim's vision of hip computing. The high gloss case you see is soft to the touch and available in two colors - hot pink and brown gold.



U53 Notebook - U Series Bamboo Collection

In an effort to protect the environment and be more green, Asus reveals the latest model in the environmentally friendly Bamboo Collection. The U53 Series laptop is thin, light, and clad in bamboo that is warm to the touch. It features a unique design thanks to the subtle variations in its manufacturing material and will sport USB 3.0 and Intel's Core i5 processor.

Wow that Bang & Olufsen is interesting with some sweet components, and ATI must be working double hard to get a 5870 in mobile trim that fast.

Whatever happened to the sleek and stylish ASUS Fold we saw at last year's CES?

Here's a reminder:

That is a very good question, although I imagine that was more of a design play than anything. Some of those components passed longer term usage patterns successfully and some did not. So they take the concept back to the drawing board until they get a functional and reliable as well as attractive final model. Then it hit's the market and it's the best thing in the world for a month nowadays lol.

Lol, well put. I did like last year's designs for Asus better than this year's.
