Three things that got us interested with the new ASUS N Series Notebook: (1) it features an enhanced SonicMaster Technology; (2) does the name David Lewis ring a bell? (3) it promises convenience, speed, and powerful performance. If it sounds good to you too, do proceed.
Before anything else, witness the specs. Both ASUS notebook models, the N45SF (14” LED Display) and the N55SF (15” LED Display), features a Windows 7 Home Basic operating system, a 4GB memory, an NVIDIA GeForce graphics, a 2-mp HD webcam, a 750 GB storage size, 2nd Generation Intel Core processors, the whole shebang.
ASUS has established a close relationship with master designer David Lewis, previously having been involved in the development of the NX90 notebook. Now collaborating on the new N Series, both sides take pride of its simplicity and elegance, combined with a streamlined and modern concept. Units are available in dark gray/black, and white.
The N Series notebooks also feature 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.
The notebook’s PC audio, the SonicMaster delivers an expanded sound range, improved fidelity, deeper bass and more distinct vocals, and uses the Bang & Olufsen ICEpower system. The N Series also offers a bundled external subwoofer to improve bass output and create impact-worthy sounds.
The ASUS N Series notebooks are also packed with thoughtful features and the latest technology, including the Music Now feature – a software suit that loads music files in seconds, and the Instant On – a functionality that helps users resume the notebook in mere seconds and manage the battery long enough for standby mode to last 15 days.
Are these notebooks worth the buy? The ASUS N Series notebooks aren’t necessarily God’s gift to the gadget industry, but with all the time and effort invested for add-ons, we say it’s actually worth the try.
