Asus anti theft technology

Asus has announced that several of its business-oriented P-series notebooks are now equipped with Intel's new anti-theft technology. The system uses an embedded security chip that allows users to remotely send a "poison pill" to the device, completely disabling the system. After the notebook has been recovered, the user can then enter a local passphrase or recovery token to restore functionality.

The P-series also incorporates a finger-login option that requires a fingerprint scan before the system boots. For users with sensitive data, an AI Secure Delete feature allows any information to be securely deleted.

The P80 offers Intel Core 2 Duo and Pentium Dual Core CPU options, ranging from 2.0GHz to 2.8GHz depending on the configuration, with memory expansion up to 4GB. The 14-inch display provides 1366 by 768 pixel resolution, while graphics acceleration is provided by NVIDIA's GeForce 9300M with 512MB of VRAM. The P30 variant uses a smaller 13.3-inch display and Intel's new CULV processor.

The P-series notebooks with anti-theft technology are now available, although the company has not yet provided pricing information.
