ASUS hasn't forgotten about the laptop segment in the slightest, as is made clear by the two new members of the N Series that have been revealed, though they aren't going to ship until next month.When it comes to the mobile PC market, ASUS has always done its best to make sure it had something for everyone.
The N Series of notebooks is one which has been in existence for quite a while now, though the newest ones may stand out a bit.
Indeed, while the N Series isn't overly pompous or perked up, the new N75SF and N55SF do have an advantage in the shape of the SonicMaster audio setup, with bundled subwoofer.
For those who want to know exactly what SonicMaster does, it provides processing protocols and codecs, advanced speaker construction and large resonance chambers.
As for everything else, the newcomers boast second-generation Intel Core central processing units and the Windows 7 operating system.
N75SF is a 17.3-inch machine with an Intel Core i7-2630QM at its heart, as well as up to 8 GB of RAM and the GeForce GT 555M 2 GB discrete graphics card.
It comes with 1.5 TB of storage space and a Blu-ray combo optical disk drive (6x). The screen's resolution is of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (Full HD) and the price will be 1,349 Euro once shipments finally commence (in October, 2011).
Other specifications include a card reader, an HD webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, USB 3.0 and HDMI.
The other laptop, has a Core i5 or Core i7 processor, a 15.6-inch screen of 1,600 x 900 pixels resolution, 8 GB of RAM, the same GPU as above and an HDD of 750 GB. The rest of its feature set is the same.
The price of the N55SF is 1,229 Euro, though a more modest version (Core i5 CPU, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD and a HD+ screen) will be available as well, for 1,099 Euro.
