Asus Launch 'Scented Notebooks' Page: 1
Have Asus been sniffing something too much?
We are all for innovation and unique ideas within the world of IT, and Asus have come up with a very unique idea but first let's get the most obvious question out of the way regarding this one- WTF? This must be deserving of the 'gimmick of the year' awards, surely?
Pushing the boundaries of laptop design, they have come up with the idea of giving some of their laptops a scent, along with fancy paint jobs. The laptops in question are from the F6 range and are available in four different aromas and designs, Floral Blossom, Musky Black, Morning Dew, and Aqua Ocean.
There is only one model within the F6 range at the moment, the F6V, with the following specifications:
- Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technology
- Intel Core2 Duo Processor T9400/P8600/P8400
- Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset
- Intel® WiFi Link 5100AGN Network Connection
- Genuine Windows Vista®
- Genuine Ultimate
- Genuine Business
- Genuine Home Premium/Home basic
- DDRII-667/800 DRAM support, up to 4GB
- 13.3” WXGA Color Shine LCD
- ATI Mobility Radeon HD3470, external 256MB DDR2 VRAM
- SATA 120/160/250/320GB
- 31.2 x 23.19 x 3.2-3.52cm
Here's what Asus have to say on each design/scent:
In glorious pink, this design evokes the imagery of a summer party, leaving the somber feel of conventional laptop designs far behind with its cheerful, floral motif and a floral scent – the most attractive laptop for ladies!
Boasting a glossy black surface emblazoned with a colorful motif inspired by extreme sports and graffiti art, this model emanates power, daring, and energy with its playfulness and musky scent.
Realized in a pastel green hue, this graphic motif is inspired by the love and respect for nature. Return to the embrace of Mother Nature for a crisp and refreshing awakening of the senses whenever you work on your notebook.
The freedom afforded by a boundless expanse of sky and the energy of breaking waves are captured perfectly on the cover of this notebook. The matching invigorating aquatic scent will keep your days energized!
Asus have said that the lifespan of the fragrance depends on actual usage, so try not to sniff it too much!
