ASUS introduced six notebooks including W3000A, W3000V, W5000A, V6000V, M5200A and M6000A, all of which are based on Intel's latest Sonoma platform.
These notebooks provide powerful data processing choices ranging from 12-, 14- and 15-inch standard screen and widescreen, offering a total mobile computing solution that fulfils the demands of users at all levels for all purposes.
All six Sonoma-based notebooks adopt an updated chipset, codenamed Alviso, supporting dual-channel DDR-II SDRAM memory that improves performance considerably compared to current mobile platforms. The PCI Express discrete graphics cards are available in the W3000V and V6000V models, providing beautiful image display. The powerful memory module not only enhances performance but also increases the overall system stability substantially. Moreover, built-in Bluetooth option is available in all six models for omnidirectional wireless connection and data transfers between the notebooks and other digital devices.
Besides two new members, the M5200A and M6000A, which are upgraded models for the popular M5200 and M6000 series, ASUS is introducing three brand new notebooks with more innovative inventions exclusively from ASUS.
