ASUS has unveiled the update for its E-series. Basic laptops for students and users with limited budgets and looking for value in a computer intended for everyday computing tasks.
ASUS E Series notebook upgrade includes models ASUS E210, E410 and E510. They are differentiated by their screen size, with 11.6, 14 and 15.6 inches diagonal respectively. The displays are NanoEdge format, with screen-to-body ratios of up to 84%.
This type of screens allows to integrate the panel into smaller chassis and reduce the total footprint of the equipment. A compact and lightweight design that allows these devices to be easily transported in backpacks. Its weight, in fact, is quite low for this type of basic laptop: 1.03, 1.3 and 1.35 kg, respectively.
This E series of basic ASUS laptops use Intel processors (the platform has not been mentioned although we assume they will be Pentium or Celeron entry models), accompanied by up to 8 Gbytes of RAM and PCIe solid state drives of up to 512 GB for internal storage. In order to keep temperature at bay, ASUS uses the IceCool internal design that keeps hotter components away from the palm rest.
The hinge of the screens can be folded down 180 degrees for sharing content and collaboration tasks. The keyboard is full-size, with 1.6mm of travel for more comfortable typing and offers the option of backlighting, while the TouchPad with 6-inch touchpad includes the built-in numeric keypad, ASUS NumberPad.
In addition to the Windows 10 that they preinstall, it includes the MyASUS software suite that offers a collection of applications and utilities such as the one that allows you to synchronize content with smart phones under iOS or Android.
In terms of finishes, the basic ASUS notebooks of this series are committed to a fresh and youthful approach serving the segment where they are intended, and colors of the cover in blue, rose gold and white. No price has been provided for these laptops, but they must be content to be liked in the educational segment and users who are looking for value and low prices on laptops. We will update.
