ASUS C90S Now Available Through Specialty System Builders
-- Desktop-level performance and flexible customization make ASUS C90S the
ideal desktop replacement --
ASUS®, the worldwide leader in 3C total solutions, today announced its
innovative C90S barebone notebook is now available through select system
builders in North America as fully configurable desktop replacements. With
support for current Intel® Core®2 Duo desktop processors, the latest optical
drives, and the widest range of interchangeable mobile graphics solutions, the
C90S maximizes "do it yourself" (DIY) flexibility and opens performance
overclocking on a level once reserved to desktop systems.
"A mobile platform designed to deliver performance and configuration
flexibility of a desktop machine offers the best of both worlds. We are excited
about our partnership with Velocity Micro, CyberPower and iBuyPower, and believe
our end consumers will benefit from the broader distribution," said Donald
Leung, Product Manager at ASUS Computer International. "Enthusiasts now have a
wider range of product to choose from. Whether they want to build the notebook
themselves or commission one of the trusted system builders, they know they have
a solid product they can rely on," commented Leung.
Upgrade Your Possibilities
With an upgradeable notebook platform, buyers
no longer have to suffer "buyer's remorse" once newer technology arrives. A
single back panel separates the DIY user from all major components, easing
modifications. The C90S' internal and external SATA connectors ensure that
future storage options and speeds can grow with the user's needs. To drive the
latest DirectX®10 Gaming and PureVideo™ supported multimedia, the ASUS C90S
supports NVIDIA® 8600M GS 256 MB DDR2 and 8600M GT 512MB DDR2. An older GeForce®
7700 256 MB DDR2 option is also available, offering the most suitable graphics
purchase options at the user's discretion. Other multimedia add-ons include an
analog TV Tuner, DVD, HD-DVD, and Blu-ray drives, effectively transforming the
C90S into a user-defined mobile entertainment center.
Overclocking Made Possible on a Notebook Computer
The ASUS C90S supports
overclocked Intel Core 2 Duo processors on the Intel 945G chipset, up to and
including X6800 Core 2 Extreme. Utilizing exclusive TurboGear technology to
boost front side bus, CPU and memory, the C90S intuitively overclocks up to 20%
at the touch of a button. Users can now leverage instantaneous performance
enhancements without entering BIOS or interrupting tasks with reboots.
Outstanding Standard Features
The powerful, flexible C90S fits within a
classy 15.4" notebook enclosure, and weights 6.8 lbs. The top lid houses a 2.0
Megapixel 240 degree swivel webcam allows for convenient snapshots and video
conferencing jobs. An onboard fingerprint scanner protects sensitive data from
hackers while expediting the log-in process. The C90S' glossy 15.4" widescreen
LCD presents bright, crisp WSXGA+ (1680x1050) resolution; while it's included
HDMI output simplifies your multimedia connection through a single cable
straight to your favorite HDTV. The C90S also includes a one year warranty,
which may be upgraded up to cover a total of 3 years.
