      ASUSPRO BU Series

      Military-grade reliability: work without worries


      Durable carbon-reinforced LCD construction

      Through the use of UD carbon fiber materials, the ASUSPRO BU201 Ultrabook easily withstands the rigors of business travel. The LCD cover gives 20% higher panel pressure resistance compared to standard notebooks, offering better damage protection while remaining light. US military-standard quality testing includes enhanced drop testing at more than double the height and extra-strict hinge testing. The BU201 Ultrabook ships with an anti-shock hard drive that includes a G-sensor and hardware structure that protect the hard drive should it drop or impact with another surface. The spill-resistant keyboard repels higher volumes of liquid compared to industry standards.

      Metal mounts and cushioned protection

      ASUSPRO BU201 uses special metal mounting brackets around the hard drive that strengthen and protect the drive beyond mainstream standards. In addition, cushions of high-rigidity impact-absorbing material provide extra protection against shocks or drops when the notebook is turned off, for example during transportation.

      Intelligent impact sensor

      As an extra line of defense to keep your data safe and secure, the hard drive has a motion sensor combined with software that intelligently predicts imminent impacts and automatically takes action to minimize the risk of hard drive damage. The sensor is a 3D digital accelerometer with three levels of sensitivity — off, normal, and high. High sensitivity is the default setting, ensuring that impact detection remains active at all times.


      Professional design: Complete comfort and productivity

      The ASUSPRO BU201 Ultrabook has a stylish dark matte finish and one-piece construction that creates a subtle and completely consistent professional look. ASUSPRO engineers have fine-tuned the BU201’s full-size, backlit true-comfort keyboard so it provides a more accurate click ratio and deep travel distance. The SensePoint™ pointstick simulates the functions of a regular mouse. It’s pressure sensitive and can control the cursor to select and drag files. The touchpad has also been optimized, maintaining high precision while offering a bigger touch surface. The 180º hinge enables the notebook to be opened flat so the screen can be viewed from all angles. And the anti-glare display has a matte screen surface that prevents unwanted reflections and helps reduce eye fatigue. The ASUSPRO BU201 Ultrabook has a compatible accessory, an Ultra Docking Station that enables expansive connectivity.

      Trusted Platform Module for robust, hardware-based security

      Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a hardware chip integrated on the motherboard that securely encrypts data, reducing the risks posed by hackers looking to capture password and encryption keys to sensitive data. TPM adds an additional layer of security and allows notebooks to run applications more securely, making transactions and communications more trustworthy. When used in conjunction with an optional security software package, it provides greatly improved overall system security, file protection capabilities, and email/privacy safeguards. TPM enables stronger security than that delivered by the BIOS, operating system, or any non-TPM application.


      Improved security with fingerprint scanning

      Fingerprint scanning ensures maximum security and data protection. The electronic fingerprint scanner in ASUSPRO BU201 uses radio-frequency (RF) imaging to read fingerprint patterns. RF is less affected than other sensor technologies by skin conditions such as dry, worn, calloused, dirty or oily skin.
