ASUS U5F Gets Core 2 Duo
ASUS today refreshed its U5F notebook to use the mobile version of Intel's Core 2 Duo processor. Starting at 1.66GHz, the upgraded 12-inch portable will be available with as much as a 2.33GHZ processor for performance-minded users. At its base level, the system will ship with 512MB of memory, an 80GB hard disk, a webcam, and integrated Bluetooth to complement the by now typical WiFi access.
The U5F also continues ASUS' practice of incorporating the company's Splendid technology for improving color accuracy and is bundled with a carrying bag and USB mouse to cater to its traveller audience. No pricing has been listed for the computer, which goes on sale today in China and should be available in North America and other regions soon.
