Press release, August 25; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Monday 25 August 2008]

Asustek Computer has launched the B50A notebook for the business computing market and two notebooks, the G50V and G71V, for the gaming market.

Based on the Intel Centrino 2 platform and with Asustek's exclusive Power4 Gear eXtreme power management, the B50A offers an extended battery life exceeding five hours, according to Asustek. The B50A also features a spill-resistant keyboard and a built-in LED keyboard light that allows computing in dimmed meeting rooms, highlighted the company.

The B50A is equipped with an integrated fingerprint scanner that offers greater security by reading fingerprints from the underlying live layer of skin tissue and also features a TPM for secure login and encryption, Asustek noted.

Designed for gamers from the inside out, the G Series includes two new models, the G71 (17-inch widescreen) and G50 (15.4-inch widescreen and 15.6-inch widescreen) that feature the Nvidia GeForce 9700M GT GPU.

The G series notebooks feature double SATA hard disk drives, with the G71 offering up to one terabyte in capacity, plus CPU LevelUp technology to offer a range of performance modes to suit different scenarios, Asustek pointed out.
