ASUS B23E 12.5-inch High-End Ultraportable Announced

 

 

A lot of new notebooks coming out of CES 2012, and Asus seems to be leading the pack with their new Ultrabook line.  But it’s also got a high-end ultraportable ready to go for business users as well. This device is known as the B23E and will be available with Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processors under the hood, complete with a 12.5-inch 1366 x 768 pixel LED backlit anti-glare display. Its ultra-simple profile and black hood look the part for your everyday computing action in the office or in the home.

The [amazon_link id=”B006Q5LJEY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]ASUS B23E[/amazon_link] Business Ultrabook also features 8GB of RAM and a maximum 750GB hard drive in a magnesium-aluminum alloy case. Other expected Pro-series niceties are also in tow, including a spill-proof keyboard and an anti-shock mounted hard disk.  Additionally, it will connect along 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, and gigabit Ethernet. Of course there’s also a single USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, and a USB/eSATA combo port. Inside you’ll find such business oriented gems as LoJack, BIOS password protection, and a fingerprint reader. The whole package comes with a magnesium alloy case and the contents are protected with an anti-shock hard drive.  It also has a three-cell 4,400mAh battery, which should provide plenty of juice.

The [amazon_link id=”B006Q5LJEY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]ASUS B23E[/amazon_link] not flashy, but will certainly get the job done.  It’ll run Windows 7 Home, Professional, or Ultimate operating systems.  The version with Windows 7 Home Premium and an Intel Core i7 processor will cost you between $922 and $999 USD, and it is available now at [amazon_link id=”B006Q5LJEY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Amazon[/amazon_link].
