ASUS M70 notebook

Thinking about replacing your desktop with a laptop – then you may wanna invest in the ASUS M70 – the first notebook computer to roll out with one terabyte of storage space.

Thinking about replacing your desktop with a laptop – then you may wanna invest in the ASUS M70 – the first notebook computer to roll out with one terabyte of storage space – that’s enough room for around 250,000 songs, 1000 hours of video or 220 DVDs…

Forget any ideas of portability, given its size and weight there is no doubt that the M70 is a desktop replacement – rather than your standard notebook computer… Put this baby into your hand luggage and you wouldn’t be taking much else on the plane with you… So it stands to reason that if you’re buying this computer it’s because you want to replace your desktop model with something a hell of a lot sexier.

Given the obvious entertainment push of this notebook (Altec Lansing speakers, Dolby sound, Blu-ray etc) it makes sense that you would use this computer for your media centre and with that in mind the ASUS crew have built in a few shortcut buttons. These buttons, just above the keyboard provide one touch access for media playback and also allow you to change the look of the notebook’s display – with settings optimised for gaming, movies, images and a special ‘soft mode’ for those times you find yourself using your laptop in a dark room… There’s also a quick launch button accessed by pressing the mode button on the track pad which allows you to easily toggle between common settings – such as playback and rewind.

Adding to the whole portable media centre vibe of the M70 are the ports – HDMI and D-sub are provided meaning you can hook it up to your TV or projector to enhance your HD viewing experience and an AV dongle for composite video output.

Sporting a 17inch display with 1920×1200 pixels, the ASUS M70 offers crystal clear viewing options thanks to the ASUS AI light which automatically adjusts the panel’s brightness to suit the ambient lighting to deliver an optimal viewing experience. The built in SVI technology also provides colour clarity; adjusting contrast, brightness and colour saturation.

The built in digital analogue tuner will no doubt please TV buffs – and with that massive terabyte hard drive you aren’t gonna worry about your TV recordings taking up space… Altec Lansing Speakers add to the notebook’s features, providing true Dolby Digital sound processing via five speakers… yes I said five speakers… All the better to enjoy the latest Blu-ray movie via the notebook’s built in Blu-ray player.

All this backed up with 1 TB of storage space (via two 500 GB drives) and a spanking new Penryn-core Intel T9300 Core 2 Duo CPU which clock in at 2.5GHZ.

Pros

  • 1 TB of hard drive space means there’s plenty of room for all your music, movies and pics
  • Replace your ugly desktop with a far sexier unit

Cons

  • The weight of this unit means few will use it for a portable device
