 05.12.2005   ASUS Introduces World's First Carbon Fiber Notebook
 

Taipei, Taiwan; November 30th, 2005 - With the continuous effort to provide innovative products, ASUSTeK Computer Inc. (ASUS), a leading provider of high-performance notebook computers, today introduced the W1 Carbon Notebook Series with high-tech carbon fiber housing. As the latest addition of notebooks that offer the advanced DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial) digital TV feature, the W1 Carbon is the winner of iF Gold Design Award 2005. Adopting the new Centrino platform, DDR II, PCI Express and the ATI Mobility Radeon X700 graphics performance, the W1 Carbon represents the perfect fusion of leading technology and style. Cutting-Edge Material Usage in Mobile Computing
Carbon fiber has long been the top choice of material used in aerospace technology for its unique physical characteristics. The W1 Carbon's LCD cover is made of solid carbon fiber that acts as effective EMI protective shield. By using this material, the W1 Carbon is 60% lighter and twice as tough than that of the notebooks made of aluminum magnesium. Besides the mechanical benefits, the ASUS industrial design team has brought out the physical beauty of carbon fiber with a dynamic design that fully expresses its outward strength as well as underlying resilience.

Catch Your Favorite TV Shows on the Notebook*
The built-in DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial) feature allows wireless digital TV broadcast wherever the service is available. To offer a relaxing viewing experience, the W1 Carbon included an ultra-slim remote controller that can be stored in the PCMCIA slot when not needed and an LCM display to show TV channel status, CD tracks, DVD scene numbers and more.

*Please check the availability of this feature on the company website: www.asus.com . Features available may vary in each region.

Instant Fun for Direct Multimedia Access
One touch entertainment enjoyment is now all at your fingertips with the exclusive Instant Fun feature that allows access to multimedia applications including, Digital TV broadcast, DVD playback and photo viewing, without the need to enter the OS first. In addition, ASUS Mobile Theater and Microsoft Media Center Edition (MCE) software combine home digital applications into a user-friendly interface in the PC environment.

Cinematic Multimedia Experience
Incorporated with the exclusive Color Shine high brightness, Crystal Shine glare-type LCD technologies and discrete graphics for 3D video performance, the W1 Carbon's large 15.4” widescreen presents clear and sharp images in their true vibrant colors. The ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Engine further improves contrast, brightness, skin tone and color saturation for vivid image display.

Built-in subwoofer delivers high-quality surround sound that adds flair to your audio presentations and brings extra dimension to music played on the notebook.

The slot-in Super Multi DVD drive with double layer technology supports a wide range of multimedia formats that allow greater data storage capacity and sharing flexibility, making the W1 Carbon the perfect entertainment center for mobile multimedia enjoyment.
