Jonney Shih, chairman of ASUSTek Computer Inc. presents the ASUS Ultra-light UX-series, N-series notebook, Eee PC X101, Eee pad slider, Eee Pad MEMO 3D and the PadFone at Computex 2011.
The UX-series notebook is advertised as “Stunningly Light and Powerfully Beautiful”, it is just 1.1kg in weight and thin between 3mm – 17mm and has aluminum body as well as metal keyboard keys. The notebook can resume to its last working state within two seconds thanks to the fast processor and the fastest SATA III SSD hard drive, which is five times faster than all current drives in the market. It is powered with Intel second gen i7, i5 or i3 Huron River CPU and has USB 3.0 with USB charger+ support.
ASUS also presented the N-series notebook with incredible richer bass and true surround sound by SonicMaster Subwoofer. For that ASUS collaborated with Bang & Olufsen, IcePower and Mr. David Lewis top designer for B&O. It has a glossy piano-like LCD cover and polished metal frame, which looks very stylish. It resumes in less that 2 seconds and can hibernate for 15 days, where data is mixed between HDD and memory.
Another announcement from ASUS was the Eee PC X101, which is also ultra thin – 17.6mm. It is super light and weights under 950gr. It comes with MeeGo and will sale for 199$. Another variant is the Eee PC X101H, which has different options for OS and specs, such as Windows and HDD – making it a bit more expensive.
Eee Pad Slider’s presentation was met with a lot of interest too. The tablet has a dual-core CPU and slide-able keyboard, for better typing experience. Its 10.1-inch IPS panel is perfect for full video enjoyment and the device has a mini HDMI port. Its storage expandable options are through the use of micro SD card slot and USB port.
For the ASUS Eee Pad MeMO 3D, android honeycomb phone/tablet device, Mr. Jonney Shih said, that ASUS decided to suppor the 7-inch Eee Pad MEMO with glasses-less 3D capabilities. Its capacitive touch screen is also controllable with a build-in stylus.
Finally was the official presentation of the Padfone. With a single SIM card for 3G network access on both devices, the combination of a Smartphone and tablet has many user scenarios. The Padfone is indeed the top of the iceberg for Computex 2011.
