The F70 exudes style and individuality throughout every inch – from the 17.3” HD display to the palm rests. The new generation ASUS infusion styling, reminiscent of the Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights), sets it apart from conventional notebook designs. Not only does this timeless design look beautiful – it serves a highly practical purpose too by offering robustness against surface abrasions and maintaining the superb glossy appearance even after long periods of use.

Users won’t only be impressed with the exterior – on the inside the specifications are equally impressive. A world-first 16:9 golden aspect Full 1080p HD display for 17” notebooks which features the latest LED backlighting technology to offer lower power consumption and vibration resistance, whilst the Altec Lansing surround sound speakers provide top notch HD audio quality to match. Such a truly cinematic combination of features provides users with the notebook equivalent of a top-end entertainment system. The built in HDMI port provides users with the option to connect their notebook to a larger display or other HDMI-capable device to enjoy entertainment versatility and a full cinematic experience.

The F70 notebook also integrates the ‘chiclet’ keyboard, a new generation of keyboard designed by ASUS. Offering a sense of familiarity by incorporating a numeric keypad, the new keyboard features concave keys that fit the user’s fingertips and offer a rebounding elasticity –a design which eases the strain of typing over longer periods. Smaller spacing between keys also sees greater protection against the gathering of dust.

The popular ASUS-developed Express Gate technology is built into the F70 notebook, offering speedy boot-up times to a user friendly, icon-based menu for fast access to internet, music, Skype™ and email.

Dedicated to allowing users the highest level of versatility, the F70 comes with a range of configurations to suit the prevailing usage requirements of the user, be it relaxing at home with a movie or staying connected whilst travelling.
