"Clearer, bigger and better picture quality with enhanced audio ? that's the nature and power of High Definition (HD). Ready to receive HD in all its full glory is the new ASUS M70 notebook that provides a WUXGA widescreen with 1920x1200 pixels resolution and Blu-Ray support. Combined with cutting-edge audio technologies including built-in Altec Lansing Speakers and Dolby Home Theater, the M70 is supremely suited as a digital entertainment and productivity tool, to deliver the most life-like reality in games and remarkable quality in movies and music every time, anywhere you go.
True High Definition The centrepiece among the M70?s broad set of features is its 17-inch WUXGA screen displaying 1920x1200 pixels with 16:10 aspect ratio. For entertainment, it is able to faithfully reproduce stunning HD movies as they were meant to be displayed, in their native resolution without scaling, which would inevitably compromise image quality. Further improving the user experience, the M70 features ASUS AI Light that automatically adjusts the display panel brightness according to ambient lighting for optimal viewing comfort, while ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology improves contrast, brightness, skin tone and colour saturation across all applications. Coupled with Blu-ray support and HDMI port, no high definition data will be lost at playback or during transfers.
Big on Sound To complement the stunning visuals of HD content, the M70 features Dolby Home Theatre sound processing and delivery via Altec Lansing speakers which produce rich, clear audio for the complete cinema experience on the go.
For greater convenience, a new and innovative interface has been developed especially for multimedia usage. When not used as a cursor platform, the M70?s touch pad can turn into a control deck for video or music entertainment. Control the volume, play, stop, pause, mute, skip and more ? the user only needs to tap with a finger and it's done. With another quick switch, the touch pad changes back for cursor movements. The user no longer needs to mouse over a control panel to activate multimedia instructions!
Look and Logon and Personal Security Measures The M70 offers two ways of accessing the computer. The ASUS SmartLogon provides an easy hands-free access using a facial scan to affirm the identity of the user. But for those who prefer seamless security, a fingerprint scanner provides a strict layer of data protection at the swipe of the finger maintaining a hassle-free user experience.
