ASUS U6 laptops US-bound

ASUS has revealed that its U6 luxury notebooks are at last coming to the US. The U6E (white) and U6S (brown) are distinguished at first by glossy exteriors, but inside are palmrests covered entirely in leather, and status-light bars designed in decorative metal. In practical terms the machines measure only 12.1 inches, but they do have a number of key accessories: these include HDMI ports, LED backlights, Super Multi DVD drives, and 8-in-1 card readers.

More crucially, the systems each have 160GB hard drives and 2GB of RAM, tethered to 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo processors. High-speed connection options are also plentiful: these include ExpressCard slots and four USB 2.0 ports, as well as optional Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11n receivers. For security, fingerprint scanners are built in. Exact prices and release dates are currently unavailable.
