    USB 3.0

    Super fast transmission speeds with USB 3.0

    ASUS notebooks are the first to feature USB 3.0. It delivers transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps, or up to 10 times that of current USB2.0 standards. This allows for faster transfers of large files like HD movies. Devices even recharge faster with 900mA charging; while USB 3.0 incorporates some environmentally-friendly features that save energy – it puts devices in idle or shuts them down when not in use.
    *USB3.0 speeds quoted are in accordance with component specifications. Actual speeds may vary by configuration and devices used.

    ASUS Instant On powered by SHE II Technology

    Super Hybrid Engine II incorporates elements of its SHE predecessor and builds on the vitals of better battery performance. Instant on allows notebooks to resume in under 2 seconds* and stay in standby for up to 15 days* . Importantly, should battery levels fall below 5%, data is automatically saved and secured on the hard drive*.

    *Resuming from hibernation on a mainstream notebook can typically take 30-60s.
    *Normal standby time before battery drains on mainstream notebooks is 3-5 days
    *Removing or draining the battery when a notebook is left in standby will lose the resume data and potentially a users work!
