(Singapore, June 29, 2011) ― ASUS announced the launch of a special edition of the N Series notebook designed by renowned artist and songwriter Jay Chou at a press event in Taipei today. The event opened with a symphony conducted by ASUS Chairman Jonney Shih and an orchestra consisting of notebooks along with piano by Jay Chou. The combination of classical music with digital remix demonstrates the latest breakthrough in ASUS SonicMaster Audio technology.

“Design inspiration has always been a part of ASUS’ DNA, and we’re honored to appoint a talented singer and songwriter like Jay Chou to infuse new elements of design into our N series notebook. But design is not all we have to offer. This special edition of the N series notebook is powered by the latest Intel innovations. I believe this strong partnership will continue to bring more exciting products to our customers”, said Jonney Shih, ASUS Chairman.

“The audio experience delivered by the N3 is truly remarkable and it’s made even better by the stunning visual experience delivered by Intel’s 2nd generation Core processors. The combination of superior sound and sight is what I call an incredible experience”, added Sean Maloney, Chairman of Intel® China.

Unique design inspired by traditional and modern motifs
Jay Chou transformed his passion and devotion for music into innovative notebook design by using music notes, sheet music, piano concepts and other musical icons as inspiration for a truly unique notebook. The combination of modern “J-style” text-wrapping with a classical Chinese blue and white porcelain finish infuses the notebook with strong and diverse Asian aesthetics. “It has been a tremendous pleasure to work with the ASUS Design Center. They were able to translate and transform my musical inspirations onto the N series notebook product design and functionality. Every detail on the N series perfectly portrays my personal taste and multimedia lifestyle,” said Jay Chou.

Intel® Core™ technology for better notebook experiences
ASUS and Intel® have cooperated closely on this campaign, creating all-new branding for N Series notebooks using the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors and Sandy Bridge architecture which enhance both graphics and multitasking performance. These portable PCs upgrade graphics and boost flexible multitasking performance while optimizing power consumption for a perfectly balanced and rewarding computing experience.

Setting new standards in notebook audio
Last year, ASUS redefined top-of-the-line audio with N Series notebooks with the development of its exclusive SonicMaster audio technology. Co-developed by a dedicated ASUS team and leading sound experts from Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, SonicMaster incorporates grand, theater-like acoustics with the constrained physical dimensions of a notebook PC.

ASUS has also worked with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® on creating the SonicMaster sound certification, which also debuted on N Series notebooks. SonicMaster is now available on all N Series notebooks and presents enhanced audio technology that delivers the clearest treble and most resonant bass on any portable PC. SonicMaster also enables the widest-reaching and most powerful surround effects, creating theater-grade and highly lifelike audio. Combined with exclusive design by Jay Chou, the special edition N Series notebook is a genuine collector’s item
