High Definition Mobile Entertainment – Introducing the New ASUS F50 and F70 Series Notebooks

World's First Slim and Light 16" Notebook and the World's First 17.3" Notebooks Designed for Personal Entertainment

Taipei, Taiwan – Stylishly Entertaining – the ASUS F50 and F70 range of notebooks combine cutting-edge design with equally innovative multimedia features tailored specifically for users who desire both high definition audio visual entertainment and extensive multitasking capabilities on the move. Each notebook is quintessentially trendy, imbued with Infusion styling that sets it apart from conventional notebook design. The F50GX features graphics prowess in the form of an integrated graphics solution imbedded in the chipset, providing users with graphical performance likened to a dedicated graphics card. The F70SL features 1TB of storage for massive storage capability, enabling users to do more anytime, anywhere.

User Centric Functionality with Exquisite Design
From the LCD lid to the palm-rest, the ASUS F50 and F70 range of notebooks is draped in ASUS' new generation Infusion styling reminiscent of the famed Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights). The timeless design not only looks incredibly beautiful, but it is particularly durable against surface abrasions and maintains its glossy surface even after long periods of use. The ASUS F50 and F70 range of notebooks also comes standard with high definition audio quality and a 16:9 Full High Definition display for high contrast rate, brightness and color saturation, providing users with visual clarity and vibrant colors like that of a top-end entertainment system. An HDMI port allows users to connect their notebooks to larger external LCD displays or other HDMI-capable devices to enjoy a full cinematic experience and entertainment versatility.

A newly adopted ‘Chocolate' keyboard continues in the same functional vein by providing users with concave keys that fit the contours of the users' fingers, offering excellent rebounding elasticity to ease typing over long durations. Narrower spaces in-between the keys provide protection against dust, while a dedicated numeric keypad provides a sense of familiarity to users who are accustomed to conventional desktop keyboards which enable speedy number input. The ASUS F50 and F70 range of notebooks also features the ASUS Express Gate, allowing users to boot up quickly and granting them instantaneous access to a built-in icon-based operating system that runs commonly-used applications such as Skype™, a music player, an email client and an Internet browser.

Versatile Set-ups for a Wide Range of Uses
Catered to multimedia entertainment and versatile computing while on the move, the ASUS F50 and F70 range of notebooks comes in various configurations, providing users with a range of set-ups to suit their prevailing usage. Users inclined to large screen entertainment and massive storage would prefer the ASUS F70SL, the world's first 17.3" notebook with 16:9 golden aspect ratio for cinematic viewing and dual hard disk drives providing up to 1 TB in storage space. Those who prefer lightweight mobility would prefer the ASUS F50GX, which is currently the world's thinnest and lightest 16" notebook in the market equipped with the NVIDIA 9400M G chipset that delivers discrete graphics card performance, or the stunning visual performance of the F50Z, featuring graphics powered by ATI.
