    Simple and elegant design

    Reveals true beauty

    Winner of a 2012 Red Dot Design Award, the N56 presents unique and durable metallic hairline-textured covers and an illuminated ASUS logo that stands out starkly in the dark. Perfectly in-line ports lend a precise look to the product, with quality extending to the experience after you open the lid. The one-piece elegant keyboard is also backlit (optional), and the touchpad sports an eye-catching concentric circle pattern.

    Ripple-like speaker mesh

    Masterpiece of artistic craftsmanship

    The speaker mesh required a new unique multi-layer etching technology be employed. It utilizes five distinct processes and takes three hours to generate the up to 20,000 perforations used in the final mesh. This achieves more than just great and meaningful aesthetics – it’s a design that contributes to clear sound delivery.

    Wide viewing angle

    Great for group discussions and sharing visual content

    Wide viewing angle

    For the best viewing and entertainment on N Series multimedia notebooks, we’ve phased in full HD (optional) and Enhanced Wide View (EWV) technology on panels to provide better visual quality and immersion. Viewing angles extend to 150° horizontal and 120° vertical, with images retaining the same great colors and brightness without color shift or reflection issues. With EWV technology, you see the same high quality image from almost every angle - not just directly in front of the screen!

    Glare-resistant matte panels

    Create comfortable viewing environments

    Glare-resistant matte panels

    Matte screen materials reduce distracting reflections, making them better for extended usage. Screens also look cleaner as materials prevent fingerprint blemishes. But the main pro here is the significant reduction of eye fatigue and related issues, such as headaches. So keep working and enjoying, and feel better while you're at it.
