ASUS SonicMaster technology has already made a hefty splash in audio circles, and the all-new N Series promises even greater listening pleasure.
With its 3rd-generation Intel® Core™ processors, the new ASUS N Series notebook delivers more mobile performance than ever before. ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology makes this performance immediately available too, with a 2-second resume time and over eight days of standby time.
The N Series is built with entertainment in mind and features a FULL HD* display with an incredibly wide viewing angle (150° H/120°V), and the anti-reflective finish keeps images clear and bright at all times. An onboard HD camera is ideal for widescreen video chat with friends and family.
Other user-friendly features include a comfortable backlit keyboard and a well-proportioned track pad with multi-touch support and enhanced ’360°’ Wi-Fi for superior wireless connectivity. All this is packaged in a stunning low-profile design that’s fashioned from tough aluminium alloy with a beautiful hairline finish.
Here comes the N Series’ party piece – ASUS SonicMaster Premium. As with the earlier N Series notebooks, this sound optimisation technology has been developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® to deliver outstanding levels of audio performance in a mobile device.
The only clue to the new N Series’ considerable audio prowess is its ripple-like speaker mesh that flows from the top two corners of the keyboard; the design features up to 20,000 holes, and helps contribute to the clear audio delivery.
But the real magic takes place in the inside – SonicMaster Premium is designed to deliver optimal audio and it uses a combination of hardware and software to produce the best possible results.
Professional-grade audio codecs give incredibly accurate audio reproduction with reduced distortion; while the bundled professional version of MaxxAudio 3 audio processing software also fine-tunes the sound and allows the user to customize settings.
When it comes to hardawre, the new N Series packs a powerful 11W amplifier with large stereo speakers and a compact desktop subwoofer also delivers rich, deep, bass making the new N Series notebooks well worth considering if you’re serious about sound quality.
