Lightweight Design with Solid Quality
The beauty of the notebook is complimented with its simple and clean lines. The stainless contour gives the notebook as structured appearance with sturdiness. To enhance the overall high mobility design of the U3 while keeping all parts well-protected, magnesium-aluminum alloy is used for the LCD cover of the notebook for 4H hardness for enhanced screen protection.
 
Visual Feast
The U3’s golden ratio 13.3-inch panel offers the mobility of a 12” notebook with the visual comfort of a 14” screen. In addition, the glare-type panel with exclusive Splendid Color Enhancement Engine displays vivid colors and sharp details for the most enjoyable viewing experience.
 
Privacy Protection
The notebook offers a smart balance of mobility and performance with comprehensive security features. Data security is uncompromised with built-in biometric fingerprint scanner that reads from the live layer of skin, preventing common skin surface conditions from impairing scanner accuracy. Embedded TPM hardware solution prevents attacks by hackers looking to capture passwords and encryption keys to sensitive data.
 
Choice of Advanced Technology
With the U3, users can enjoy one of the following three optional features: turbo memory, 3G connectivity and global positioning system (GPS). The turbo memory speeds up the boot up of notebooks with better operating power efficiency. Built-in 3G module enables users to stay connected to the World Wide Web via high-speed mobile networks anywhere. The GPS guides the way with precision and ease for versatile functionality.
 
Live Video Communication
The high-resolution webcam module is integrated seamlessly into the U3’s LCD panel and together with a built-in high quality microphone wire-free video conferencing is possible anywhere. Wireless connectivity of the U3 is also extensive with built-in WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.0 enhanced data rate for high speed Internet access and data transfers.
 
Long Lasting Battery Life
Mobility is further fueled with extended battery life that empowers better productivity. ASUS Power4 Gear eXtreme power management extends battery life up to 20-25%, providing a reliable and continuous operation power. The U3 also has a special Power Saving key that allows users to switch between an internal graphics chip for optimal power consumption and an external graphics ship for a performance boost.
