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 rversate, 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.
