We imagine all the things that could possibly happen during work and carry out thousands of rigorous tests to ensure the durability of the ASUSPRO BU8430U. They are strictly quality-tested to much higher industry standards than mainstream notebooks to satisfy the reliability and durability demands ofbusiness and institutional users.
Extreme Reliability - Proven to Exceed the Demanding US MIL-STD 810G Military Standard
Enhanced drop testing
More than double the drop height of standard notebooks
Enhanced pressure testing
Up to 20% higher endurance compared to normal notebooks
Stronger hinge testing
20,000 more cycles than standard notebook testing
Occasional liquid spillages are no longer a problem
Anti-shock Hard Drive Keeps Data Safe
ASUSPRO B series notebooks offer increased hard drive protection, with damage-absorbing sponge cushions designed to protect the hard disk against shocks and drops during transportation. Additionally, the hard disk features a complete protection mechanism consisting of G-Sensor hardware and software that actively protects against imminent impacts in order to help keep data safe and secure. This system uses a 3D digital accelerometer with three levels of sensitivity: off, normal, and high. The latter is activated by default, and impact detection remains on at all times.
User Experience Professionals Will Appreciate
Comfort and pleasant user experience are key especially when you work long hours and often these involve working away from the office or while on travel. That's why the ASUSPRO B8430U is equipped with 14” wide view FHD, anti-glare display to reduce eye fatigue, a HD camera for more efficient conference calls, full-sized and spill-resistance keyboard with back-light illumination as well as the Sense point with enlarged clickpad.
True-comfort Keyboard and Dedicated Numeric Keypad Increase Productivity
Notebook keyboards are of great concern in the workplace, as they are essential for comfort and productivity. ASUS engineers have fine-tuned the B Series keyboard, providing optimum key feel and long key travel to maintain comfort during long hours of work. The keyboard also provides a full dedicated numeric keypad, complete with navigation keys, to increase efficiency for data entry or document navigation.
Anti-glare display for comfortable viewing
The matte screen surface used in ASUSPRO notebooks prevents unwanted reflections, reducing eye fatigue. It also prevents unsightly fingerprint smudges from spoiling displayed content such as presentations. Ergonomically-angled and textured palm rest areas provide a comfortable and solid feel for optimum productivity.
Peace of Mind with Secure and Safe Solutions
Data is vital to your business and that's why the ASUSPRO B8430U contains extensive secure and safe solutions to give you the peace of mind.The ASUSPRO B8430U utilizes metal brackets to strengthen structures around drives with pressure-absorbing “air bag', protecting storage beyond mainstream standards. Motion Sensor Protection Mechanism G-sensor hardware and hard drive protection software also pre-empt imminent impacts as an additional line of defense in keeping data safe and secure. In addition, smart card authentication ensures safe and secure online transactions while the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) provides the protection on a deep hardware level. To ensure even more security, there's an accurate and reliable fingerprint scanner which uses sensors that are less affected by skin surface conditions.
Wake-on-LAN(WOL) Allows PCs to be turned on by a Simple Network Message
ASUSPRO B series have a built-in hardware module on the motherboard that supports Wake-on-LAN (WOL). This allows them to be powered on or woken from sleep mode by a network message via LAN or WAN connections. This feature is invaluable for remote PC maintenance and support.
