ASUS New N Series notebook with subwoofer
To meet the ever-growing multimedia needs of users, ASUS has continuously pushed notebook audio to new milestones, as shown by the redesigned N Series. Featuring a simple and elegant design by David Lewis and an enhanced version of SonicMaster Technology co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, N Series notebooks also ship with a bundled subwoofer. Instant On two-second notebook resume and 15-day standby power, USB Charger+ device charging even with the notebook turned off, the latest 2nd generation Intel Core processors, NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and superfast USB 3.0 help new N Series notebooks provide users with a more incredible multimedia experience than ever before.
Designed with David Lewis
ASUS has established a close relationship with master designer David Lewis, whose studio has been responsible for accounts such as Bang & Olufsen for several decades. Previous collaboration included work on the NX90 notebook, and ASUS and Lewis got together again to develop the new N Series. Its streamlined and modern concept combines simplicity and elegance for a unique look. Some of the main points include polished metal frames around edges, glossy piano-like surfaces, and a sound wave-inspired speaker mesh. The keyboard offers seamless integration with the rest of the notebook as well as reinforced fast action keys for improved typing, while palm rests give consumers the benefit of a soft-touch feel.
Lifelike sound through exclusive ASUS SonicMaster Technology
Creating a new dimension of notebook PC audio, SonicMaster delivers an expanded sound range, improved fidelity, deeper bass and more distinct vocals. Its performance rivals that of dedicated surround systems, thanks to audio by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. ASUS is also offering a bundled external subwoofer with new N Series notebooks to further improve bass output and create impactful sound. It’s important to note the enhanced version of SonicMaster Technology as featured on new N Series notebooks offers performance beyond that found on previous NX90 models, yet does so on a more portable form factor.
Convenience, speed and powerful performance
New N Series notebooks include the Music Now feature, a software suite that loads music files in seconds. They are packed with thoughtful ASUS features and the latest technology. Exclusive Instant On functionality helps users resume the notebook in a mere two seconds while better managing the battery so standby mode can be prolonged to 15 days. The charging of USB-based devices occurs more efficiently with USB Charger+, a powered port that can top up batteries even when the notebook is turned off. With consumers using more portable devices via USB, this feature is especially useful and time saving. For improved multimedia and smoother performance, new N Series notebooks include 2nd generation Intel Core processors and powerful DirectX11-compatible NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics, which enable high-spec gaming. NVIDIA Optimus technology switches between integrated and discrete graphics to ensure optimized performance and a longer battery life, while USB 3.0 offers up to ten times the data transfer speeds of USB 2.0.
