ASUS C90S Notebook

ASUS revealed today that it has a desktop replacement notebook in the works which should be equally flexible and quick. Codenamed the C90S, the 15.4-inch widescreen system can be custom-ordered by either buyers or retailers to offer as much or as little performance as they need. Performance will be driven chiefly by a desktop-class Core 2 Duo running as quickly as 2.66GHz; an MXM module will also let shoppers custom-order the system with different levels of NVIDIA graphics, including the future GeForce Go 8-series when it becomes available. Multimedia will be just as much a speciality with an optional Blu-Ray drive, an HDMI output, an internal TV tuner, and an unusually sharp 2-megapixel webcam.

The Asian computer designer expects to launch the C90S in mid-May, and should offer it in North America as well as its home continent. Pricing will vary widely depending on the region and the options chosen. [via NotebookReview]
