ASUS today announced that a select group of its notebooks and Eee Series PCs - including the Eee PC, Eee PC Touch, EeeBox PC and EeeTop PC - will feature exclusive enhancements designed to improve the overall Windows 7 experience.
The applicable ASUS notebooks, which will come installed with 64-bit versions of Windows 7, promise a level of performance and security over and beyond that of notebooks running previous versions of Windows?most notably up to 40% faster bootups and server-level security with enhanced core protection. Similarly, ASUS' Eee Series PCs running Windows 7 will boast exclusive features that make them easier to use, faster, more energy efficient.
All ASUS notebooks installed with Windows 7 will run 64-bit versions of the operating system. This allows the notebooks to fully utilize the higher RAM ceiling that 64-bit Windows 7 affords?up to 128GB ? improving their multitasking capabilities and processing speeds. 64-bit Windows 7-equipped ASUS notebooks will also boot up up to 40% faster than competing notebooks, thanks to FastBoot technology which shortens notebook boot times to as low as 30 seconds. ASUS worked very closely with Microsoft on performance improvements in Windows 7 on ASUS PCs.
The marriage of Eee Series PCs and Windows 7 is the expression of the Eee brand's "Easy, Excellent, Exciting" mantra. Windows 7 - equipped Eee Series PCs allow users to enjoy near-instant access to the web and beyond with Fast Bootup Technology. They also feature Eee Docking or Eee Bar, user-friendly shortcut bars that give users direct access to applications and web services, as well as ASUS @Vibe which serves as users' window to a world of web-based multimedia entertainment. Furthermore, ASUS WebStorage gives users additional online storage space, allowing them to backup and share their files.
