New ASUS R2E Notebook for Enhanced Mobile Computing

Targeting the Indian consumers, Asus has again marked its prestige with its latest innovative ultra mobile PC, dubbed R2E. The uniquely designed notebook that promises to offer on-the-go computing and mobility.
Offering all the advantages with a highly versatile platform based on the functionality of a conventional laptop and the user-friendliness of touch panel input on an intelligent digital writing pad. With its 7-inch LCD screen, the R2E packs all these features in the size of a paperback novel! With the ASUS SunRead glare-proof panel, users can use the R2E to lead the way even when navigating the great outdoors in the sun!

About the launch of this new product, Mr. Stanley Wu - Product Manager, Notebooks, ASUS (India) said, "The ASUS R2E is our latest product offering in the UMPC segment. It is a very innovative notebook that achieves a fine balance between being feature rich and compact at the same time. We believe that an innovation such as the ASUS R2E will provide notebook users in India with a unique solution to their ever increasing on-the-go computing needs.”

Global Positioning System (GPS) for Anywhere Connection

Navigate and explore with built-in GPS. The retractable mechanism stores the antenna away when not in use. Together with Internet access, positioning is possible even off road! Multiple programs can run simultaneously for accurate turn-by-turn directions for the driver while passengers get to enjoy live TV or movie and music playback!

Digital Entertainment On-the-Go

The R2E packs in a great number of multimedia features for personal entertainment anywhere. There's easy media access anytime with live TV enjoyment with an external antenna and a remote controller. For a comfortable viewing experience, the ASUS SunRead glare-proof panel displays images and words sharply for a clear view in bright light.

Solid Security Management for Protected Computing and Solid Privacy Protection

In order to provide business travelers with peace of mind, the R2E offers total data protection that meets the evolving security needs with both software and hardware solutions. This notebook offers a smart balance of mobility and performance with a comprehensive security feature that protects the notebook and its stored information. Data security is uncompromised with a built-in AuthenTec fingerprint scanner with TruePrint® technology that reads from the live layer of skin, preventing common skin surface conditions from impairing scanner accuracy. Embedded TPM is a hardware solution that helps to avoid attacks by hackers looking to capture passwords and encryption keys to sensitive data.

Freedom to navigate with confidence by just the touch of a finger

ASUS R2E with satellite GPS provides a comprehensive travel guide owing to which users no longer need to deal with paper maps or ask for directions! The incorporated GPS antenna with a foldable mechanism allows convenient storage when not in use. Ultimately, the R2E empowers users to go further, do more!

Do more with a Smaller and Lighter Design

The feature-rich R2E is packed with computing, multimedia and connectivity functions. Built-in Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g and a high-resolution webcam, offer extensive high-speed connections and wire-free video communication.

Intuitive User Experience

The R2E runs on Genuine Windows® Vista™ Edition with Microsoft® Origami Experience Pack software and ergonomic hardware interface designs. With complete function keys laid out on both sides of the front panel, users enjoy comfortable operation to a full set of control keys, including mouse, scroll buttons, hot keys as well as an on-screen keypad, all at the finger tips.

Handwritten Input with ASUS InfoPen

Increase productivity and efficiency with handwritten input capability! Together with ASUS InfoPen software, users can record and edit images or documents as easy as on a piece of paper with color and highlighter options. The DigiPen stylus also has an eraser end and mouse control buttons so that users can now navigate a wide range of applications with single-handed ease!

Easier and Safer Digital Data Transmission

Secure digital media slot is also integrated into the new R2E notebook PC. It gives users the immediate benefit of easy file sharing with different devices and users, while opening the door for future technologies like secure digital I/O. Secure digital helps ASUS products work better together.
