Asus has added to its high-performance notebook roster with a Centrino-based model which it is pitching as ideal for viewing multimedia presentations while on the move.

The M6000N series comes with three display options, going up to a 15.4-inch screen size, in 16:10 aspect ratio. The built-in optical drive bay supports a range of drives, including DVD dual or combo drives and the M6000N features an ATI Radeon Mobility 9600 graphics chipset.

The M6000N also comes with a new battery conservation feature, which automatically adjusts CPU speed according to system load. The user can choose one of eight different modes, such as games playing, watching a DVD or rather less taxing working on word documents. Asus claims this feature allows for up to 8.5 hours battery life.

"Customized for both business and entertainment, the M6000N's convertible modular design provides users more enhanced functionality and portability. It is an excellent solution for today's corporate users who demand mobility and after-work professionals relaxing at a coffee shop," the company says in the blurb on the M6000N on its web site.
