ASUS has announced three new laptops that belong to the N series – the N46, N56 and N76. The novelties arrive with 14-, 15.6- and 17.3-inch screens and support Full HD with working screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Hidden within aluminium chassis that are resistant to scratches the new laptops feature LED keyboards and touchpads with a special soft-feel coating that creates a visual mat effect and pleasant tactile sensations that imitate touching velvet, leather or soft rubber. Size-wise they differ but the ASUS N56 laptop, which comes with a 15.6-inch display, measures 379 x 261 x 35 mm and weighs 2.7 kilograms.
On the hardware side the notebooks come with Intel Sandy Bridge processors that can be upgraded to Ivy Bridge, up to 8 GB of DDR3 memory, 500 GB/750 GB/1000 GB hard drives, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M 2 GB graphics card, Blu-Ray optical drives, Ethernet adapters, web cameras, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, D-Sub and HDMI ports and a 5200 mAh battery.
The new ASUS N-series laptops also come with the high quality audio system ASUS SonicMaster and the Super Hybrid Engine II technology that reduces the time needed to get the notebook out of sleep mode and prolongs battery life.
Pricing and commercial availability are unknown.
