Asus unveils stealth-fighter inspired notebook
Asus gaming notebook includes design and features based on stealth fighter
Asus has launched a new high end gaming notebook, which it says has been inspired by the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter.
The Asus Republic of Gaming (ROG) G73Jh has been influenced by the stealth fighter both in terms of performance and looks with what Asus calls an "understated, subtly aggressive design".
The 17.3 inch notebook has an angular design, with improved ergonomics, including a thinner palm rest and a keyboard plane inclined by five degrees, to make typing more like using a conventional keyboard in terms of comfort.
Heat and noise generating components are located in the rear of the devices, along with a twin rear venting system which aims to keep heat and noise away from the user.
The ROG G73Jh is power by an Intel Core i7 processor, with a DirectX 11-compatible ATI Radeon HD5870 GPU, and comes with up to 8GB of DDR3 system memory and 1TB of storage from a dual HDD configuration.
Other features include 8 channel audio, 802.11b/g WiFi, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 2.1, a 2 megapixel camera and Blu-ray/DVD combo drive, and models will be available running both Windows 7 Ultimate and Home Premium editions.
The G73 should be available from middle to end of March and the price will be 8,999AED (to be confirmed).
