ASUS has launched a new family of notebooks, the M6000N series, which the Taiwanese firm claims is ideal for both the business and leisure user.

The M6000N series features Intel's Centrino mobile technology and will come with a number of different display options (15-4", 15.1" or 14").

ASUS claims that the new notebook is ultra slim and the various configurations of the M6000N will come with a 40GB, 60GB or up to 80GB Ultra ATA/100 hard drive and 256MB of RAM, which is expandable to 2GB.

The 64MB VRAM graphics chipset, ATI Mobility Radeon 9600, enables graphics-intensive applications on the go. The built-in optical drive bay supports DVD-RW, DVD Multi, DVD dual or Combo drive.

The M6000N has the full suite of Intel Centrino mobile technology, which includes the Intel Pentium M processor, 855PM chipset and IntelPro/Wireless 2100/2200BG network connection system. An interesting inclusion is the built-in Gigabit LAN, which ASUS claims will "ensure robust and high-speed connection for wired and wireless environments".

With one eye on the 'digital home' market, ASUS has included multimedia keys on the front of the notebooks that allow easy control of the multimedia player, which supports CD, MP3, DVD and VCD. Users can press these buttons and access their entertainment content without needing to boot up the entire notebook. The M6000N also has a four-way surround sound speakers system.
