Protecting nature is a joint effort that unites us all, but it doesn’t have to exclude innovative design, memorable style and powerful computing potential. With a U Series Bamboo Collection notebook, you can do your part for the environment without compromising cutting edge computing and stylish mobility. It’s the natural choice, really.
The Beauty of Design
If you’re both fashion and eco conscious, the U Series Bamboo Collection was made for you. Each notebook sports a smoky brown bamboo exterior that’s not overly treated so as to retain its organic look , properties and tactility—creating a personal journey for person and machine as the wood matures and changes with time. The natural bamboo is juxtaposed with sleek, brushed aluminum interior surfaces and a seamless chiclet keyboard that is as comfortable to use as it is great to look at. These smart design decisions add up to a notebook that’s very light, making it easy for you to become an ambassador of good taste and environmental responsibility.
Bamboo was picked not just for its fetching looks; it was chosen after research identified it as a quickly-replenishing resource whose utilization has almost no impact on the environment. Bamboo also has a tensile strength that rivals that of steel, making it a perfect substitute for plastic. The product packaging is equally eco-friendly, made of 100% natural and recyclable bamboo pulp and non-woven packing cloth.
The Beauty of Performance
U Series Bamboo Collection notebooks are as brainy as they are beautiful. ASUS’ exclusive Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) monitors processing loads and delivers the exact amount of power suited to the task at hand. Energy efficiency is further bolstered by NVIDIA Optimus technology that switches between high end discrete graphics and normal integrated visuals, depending on system usage. These two intelligent technologies combine to conserve not just our planet, but also the notebook’s battery—prolonging usability while lowering energy consumption.
U Series Bamboo Collection notebooks also feature Syncables technology that enables effortless syncing with a plethora of devices, including desktop PCs, other notebooks, smartphones and digital cameras. This makes it easy to share files, backup data and access collections quickly. Intelligent syncing allows you to get more done using one light notebook as your nexus—invariably reducing the overall energy footprint as less equipment needs to be powered on at the same time.
USB 3.0 is another new addition to the range, enabling data transfers that are up to ten times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 is fully backward compatible, so you can be assured that all of your existing USB devices can still be used. And while transferring massive content and large files in mere seconds is a plus, USB 3.0 is also good for the environment, since it charges devices much faster than USB 2.0, requiring less power to do so.
The Beauty of Sight and Sound
The U Series Bamboo Collection is designed to deliver a stunning audio-visual experience. The vibrant and crisp LCD panel comes with a Zero Bright-Dot guarantee, providing peace of mind against dead pixels, while ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology automatically tweaks colors, sharpness and other visual parameters to ensure the best experience regardless of the content being viewed. The superb visuals are matched by the notebook’s pristine and accurate audio delivery, thanks to high fidelity SRS Premium Surround Sound.
