ASUS M50S Multimedia Notebook First Look
Subject: Mobile | April 30, 2008 - 09:30 PM | Ryan Shrout
ASUS was kind enough to send over one of the soon-to-be-released M50S notebooks for our perusal - and this is a hell of a machine at first glance. While not as powerful as notebooks like the Dell XPS M1730 or the Alienware M9750, it's also not nearly as heavy and should actually be considered PORTABLE to most people.
We'll have a review up of the system pretty soon but for now I just thought you all would like to see some shots of the sexy M50S beforehand.
Oh, and it comes with a Blu-ray disc reader / DVD burner as well.
Other nice observations thus far include pretty good integrated speakers from Altec Lansing (much better than most notebooks), manageable battery life and an integrated 1.3MP camera that swivels 180 degrees to face towards you or away from you.
Again, we'll have a full review with performance evaluations and more pics soon! Join us in the PC Perspective Mobility Forum if you have any questions or comments.
