Asus has officially announced its new U1F ultraportable
notebook. DailyTech first reported on
the notebook a little
over one week ago, but with the official announcement comes a few more
details on what's included with Asus' latest model.
The headlining feature of the U1F is an 11.1" WXGA LED backlit
panel. The panel is half the width of traditional LCD panels and is one-third
lighter. Asus claims that the LED technology allows the screen to offer lower
power consumption, better luminance and faster response times.
When it comes to the guts of the machine, the U1F features
an Intel Core Duo U2400 processor, Intel 945GM Express chipset, Intel
PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, built-in webcam, four
USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, and one ExpressCard slot. Asus has also
chosen to embrace next generation optical storage technology with an optional
external Blu-ray/DVD Super-Multi drive. An embedded TPM hardware and a
biometric fingerprint scanner are also included for enhanced security.
Pricing and availability is still not available for the U1F,
but DailyTech will keep you posted.
