Like every other laptop manufacturer, Asus is refreshing its line-up in time for Intel’s Ivy Bridge release. The new 14in N46, 15in N56 and 17in N76 have some fairly impressive specs to back their Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors too, with up to 8GB or RAM, a whopping 1TB 5,400rpm hard drive or faster 750GB 7,200rpm HDD, and Nvidia Series 6 graphics with up to 2GB of dedicated RAM.
Other niceties include comprehensive connectivity, an optional Blu-ray drive, Bluetooth 3.0, and screen resolutions up to Full HD (1,920 x 1,080). There will even be the option to go for the Ultimate edition of Windows 7.
Despite all this goodness, Asus doesn’t appear to have compromised the N-Series’ design, with a minimalist two-tone look that’s more reminiscent of the Apple Macbook than Asus’ own Zenbook Ultrabook. We’re certainly liking what we see, but will have to wait until we’ve had a proper play before rendering a verdict.
