ASUS only recently brought out the Eee PC 1201PN netbook, powered by the Pine Trail platform and the NVIDIA ION 2 graphics, showing that the PC maker intends to play its best hand on the mobile market this year. To do so, the company will show off a number of new mobile computers by the time the year is out, and part of ASUS’ own lineup has now been revealed to include a set of high-end notebooks based on Intel Core CPUs.
Asustek Computer will unleash the U-Bamboo and NX/N/U series of notebook PCs during the second half of the ongoing year. Both of these lines will employ discrete graphics developed by NVIDIA and next-generation I/O technologies, including the very popular, albeit somewhat scarce, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface.
All members of this collection come with a chassis made of bamboo. The NX90JQ will be sold for roughly $2,670, whereas the U-Bamboo will start at $1,290. ASUS will also release the cheaper 13.3-inch U35, 14.4-inch U45, and 15.6-inch N53Jh, supposedly priced at $1,190, $1,260, and $1,510, respectively.
