W5Fe fw ASUS Upcoming Notebooks For Singapore

ASUS Technology Pte Ltd. (ASUS), a leading provider of high-performance
notebook computers, today introduced a whole new way to mobile computing with
the revolutionary W5Fe series. The compact 12” wide notebook with cutting-edge
SideShow, external auxiliary display on the LCD cover, offers high mobility with
quick and easy data access convenience. Known for its strong engineering
strength, ASUS once again takes the lead into the new Vista era.

The W5Fe, based on the award-winning W5 series design, is packed with a wide
range of exclusive features including, display technologies for enhanced digital
entertainment enjoyment as well as high-resolution swivel webcam for wire-free
video communication. The two spindle design with card reader slot and Bluetooth
2.0+EDR ensures extensive connectivity as well as ample data storage.

One-Step Forward in Mobile Computing Technology
With the launch of Microsoft’s Vista Operating System, notebooks are now capable
of a more powerful processing that is predicted to change and improve the
current computing behavior. SideShow is an independent operating system that it
can be switched on without booting up the whole system. With imbedded flash
memory, users can save selected data to SideShow, in forms of text, image and
audio, for later review. The external system is well synchronized with the main
operating system that users can set for automatic outlook (emails, calendar and
meeting appointments) update when the main system is powered on for swift
refresh to ensure data consistency.

Second Glance
The W5Fe’s auxiliary display is a short cut to viewing a wide range of
information, including meeting schedules, phone numbers, addresses, and recent
e-mail messages. This comes as a very handy tool when, for instance, one needs
to take a quick look at the meeting agenda in a crowded elevator. On the
entertainment front, the outer display can be used to view photos, play music
and games such as Solitaire. In addition, SideShow can even act as the mobile
navigation device and guide the way with map display!

To stay on top of the ever fast changing technology world, the W5Fe is
definitely the next hot digital gadget that guarantees powerful processing,
sleek design, seamless integration and even a quick peek to important data
without opening the notebook. Enjoy the new-edge computing with an extra degree
of human factor.
