In creating the B50A, ASUS has taken every consideration of the business executive’s varied computing needs for power, reliability and mobility. The result is the ultimate notebook computer for the business environment, packed with speed, intelligent features, and versatility, the ultimate competitive advantage for the business executive. In addition to the unique technologies and software features, the B50A offers the latest Express Gate that empowers users with 8 second boot-up* for access to a host of multimedia and online applications!
Built for Mobile Efficiency
It is not merely a question of power – of which the B50A has plenty – but also one of usefulness. In this regard, business executives who find themselves working away from their desks will appreciate the reliability of the B50A. Based on the latest Intel Centrino®2 Processor Technology platform and ASUS exclusive Power4 Gear eXtreme power management, the B50A has an extended battery life in excess of 5 hours*. Moreover, the B50A also features a spill-resistant keyboard, so the notebook is protected from accidental liquid spills of up to 120cc of liquid. Productivity is guaranteed with the built-in keyboard LED light that allows computing in dimmed meeting rooms.
Express Gate for 8 seconds* Boot-Up and Instant Online
This additional built-in operating system takes users to a host of most commonly used features instantly, including web browser, instant messenger, Skype, photo manager, music player and online gaming. With this truly convenient, instant access to the Internet, users can now send a last-minute email before rushing off to work, browse the Web in between appointments and reach friends and family via instant messenger all in the blink of an eye. In addition, Express Gate has also effectively created two computers in one that it is now easier to share the computer. When under the Express Gate environment, Internet, music and photos can be shared without disturbing the files and setup in the Windows operating system reserved for personal use.
Power with Seamless Security
Information is the lifeblood of commerce and the importance of reliable security for a business executive cannot be overstated. Yet while keeping prying eyes out, a good, robust security system should also be seamless to operate for the authorized, intended user. Offering all the above benefits, the B50A is integrated with a biometric fingerprint scanner that offers greater security by reading fingerprints from the underlying live layer of skin tissue and TPM (Trusted Platform Module) for secure login and encryption. Together, these ensure that data and transactions through B50A are secure, yet remain efficient and easy to use.
Docking Station for Efficient Connectivity
The detachable docking station is an ideal solution for quick connection of peripherals, power and communication devices. Whether at home or in the office, it offers advanced practicality and time saved when leaving and returning to the desk.
The built-in WLAN 802.11 a/g/n ensures wireless Internet access whenever reception is available. The B50 also provides Bluetooth 2.1 EDR – an enhanced data rate that transmits three times faster than the standard Bluetooth, for increased connectivity and synchronization between digital devices. In addition, a complete range of input / output ports that includes 4 USB ports, 1 x HDMI , 1 x E-SATA port, 1 x Docking Connector (hot swappable) and express card slots will provide you with dynamic data transfer and storage options.
