ASUS announces new additions to U Series notebooks

asus-u-series-smallThe latest U Series notebooks from ASUS have finally answered the question “form or function?” with the answer, “Why not both?”

While most thin and lightweight notebooks face the problem of scaled back functionality, the new U Series from ASUS-whose design was inspired by one of nature’s thinnest, most aesthetically pleasing and most graceful creations, the butterfly-promises an exquisitely crafted, thin and lightweight notebook that takes away nothing in terms of functionality. Its side profile resembles the wings of a butterfly in flight, and combined with its coherent design, the result is a series of notebooks that are so much more than just gadgets. They are exquisitely designed accessories for the style conscious professional, those who seek to assert their own individuality and appreciate the finer details in life.

Asus U series

Designed to Perform

Unlike many portable, thin and lightweight notebooks today, the new U Series from ASUS has given nothing away in terms of functionality. Its size and ultra-light profile belie a power that is as unexpected as it is necessary in today’s tech-savvy world. The Intel® ULV processors and Core™2 Duo processors pack a power efficient punch. Promising better overall performance, this next generation processor offers power-optimized mobile processing, enhanced to handle today’s demanding software applications.

For multimedia aficionados, the U Series also offers crisp and vibrant images with its energy efficient 16:9 LED-backlit display, powered by a NVIDIA® GeForce® G 105M which offers spectacular graphics, stunning clarity and effortless mobility.

Of course, what is vision without the appropriate sound to complement it? The U Series is equipped with Altec Lansing speakers featuring SRS Premium Sound™ for exceptional audio reproduction akin to a home theater system.

To top it all off, the U/UX series also incorporates Express Gate which allows users access to a host of commonly used applications such as instant messaging clients and a multimedia manager, as well as the Internet in just 8 seconds*.

Designed to Delight

Every level of the U Series’ design, from the thin and light profile to minor touches such as the shimmering glitters on the LCD lid, reflect ASUS’ attention to detail. In all its form and functionality, the user has not been forgotten, as the series also incorporates a host of user-centric touches. The U Series is equipped with AI Light sensor technology which adjusts the brightness of the screen, as well as the backlighting of both the illuminated keyboard and interactive touchpad**, to ensure visual comfort and ease of use.
