Asus is moving to shrug off its reputation for cheap and cheerful netbooks. It has gone all out and launched the all singing NX90 notebook with audio designed by hi-fi specialists and reserve of the too-much-money brigade Bang & Olufsen.
The luxury laptop has been drawn up by designer David Lewis. It has an 18.4 inch high definition screen with two large speakers totalling 108cc, 3-4 times better, says Asus, than your average traditional laptop speakers.
Other features include two large touchpad areas either side of the keyboard, which enjoy two-handed movements, zooming and scrolling, and a mirror finish case, which is perfect for the vain. And let’s face it – if you can afford this, you probably are, to a point.
The NX90 costs £2,499 and will be available from Harrods, Micro Anvika, Selfridges and Comet.
