ASUS launches special-run F8p notebook for Christmas

updated 03:15 pm EST, Mon November 12, 2007

ASUS F8p Christmas Edition

In an unusual move, ASUS today rolled out a special Christmas Edition of its F8 series 14-inch notebook. The unique version, known as the F8p, scraps ASUS' familiar black for an all-white design with silver keys; the palm rests are covered in white leather, the PC maker touts. A matching bag is also included. Inside, the portable is focused on speed with a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of memory, a 250GB hard disk with a 1GB Turbo Memory cache, and a 256MB Mobility Radeon HD 2400 capable of driving both HD video and Vista Home Premium's Aero Glass interface.

A lid-mounted, 1.3-megapixel webcam and 802.11n Wi-Fi also round out the high-end feature set. ASUS is known to be shipping the F8p for Italy by the end of November for 1,339 Euros ($1,953) and should make the system available elsewhere in Europe as well. A North American adaptation of the Christmas Edition is unknown, though the standard F8 series is already available through resellers. [via Notebook Italia]
