ASUS P30A Business notebook PC

ASUS has unveiled a new P30A business notebook PC designed with portability, data security and long battery life. It sports a 13.3-inch display, weighs 1.49kg and comes equipped with Intel Core™2 Duo processor, DDR2 SDRAM and 2.5-inch SATA hard disk.

Taipei, Taiwan, April 21, 2009 – ASUS has launched the P30A business notebook, designed for professionals who desire portability, dependability, data security and long battery life. Powered by an Intel® Core™2 Duo processor, the P30A features a suite of technological innovations designed to provide effortless computing to business professionals everywhere.

Business users will also appreciate ASUS Xpress Charge, which allows them to charge their ASUS P30A to 90% of its battery life in 90 minutes. With ASUS Smart Assist, users can access troubleshooting resources through ‘live’ interactive chat or e-mail correspondences with ASUS technical support.

Sturdy and Robust Design with Data Protection for Secure and Reliable Computing
Measuring only 1-inch in profile and weighing just 1.49kg, the ASUS P30A is a portable business performer capable of all rounded data protection. Data is equally protected with ShockShield Data Protection, in which the scanning needle of the hard disk drive moves away from the disc in the event of an impact, thus preventing any scratching which would otherwise damage the data written within.

Users can also conduct their businesses on the ASUS P30A securely, with AI Pre-boot Finger Logon which enables users to authorize the system to boot up by scanning their fingers via the in-built fingerprint scanner. The ASUS P30A also incorporates Anti-theft technology whereby an embedded Intel® security chip tracks the stolen notebook and secures the data within even before the perpetrator can access it. With AI Secure Delete, users can securely delete any sensitive data completely with no opportunity for others to retrieve them.

A Feature-packed Companion for the Business User of Today
The ASUS P30A features the ASUS Xpress Charge, which lets users charge their notebooks up to 90% in just 90 minutes, bringing convenience to users especially when time is of the essence. A 1.3-megapixel webcam provides the ability to conduct video conferencing while on the move, while a full range of ports – including a HDMI port – allows for versatile connectivity to other multimedia devices at work or at home.
