Asus launches M50 Blu-ray notebook

Written by test

Comes with Nvidia or ATI graphics


Asus has just announced its latest addition to its huge range of notebooks, the M50, which is a heavily multi-media featured notebook. It comes with a built-in Blu-ray drive, high-definition sound combined with Altec Lansing speakers and Dolby Home Theater, as well as the latest mobile graphcis solutions from either ATI or Nvidia.

The graphics options are between the ATI Mobile Radeon HD 3470 and 3650 or the Nvidia Geforce 9500M GS. The 3470 comes with a paltry 256MB of graphics memory, the 9500M GS comes with 512MB and finally, the 3650 comes with 1GB. The screen is a fairly big standard 15.4-in unit available in either 1,366x768, 1,440x900 or 1,680x1,050. We're not sure why Asus didn't offer a 1,920x1,200 version, as that would have allowed for 1080p playback of Blu-ray media, but at least the M50 has an HDMI port, so you could always hook it up to an external 1080p display.

Asus has taken a cue from Toshiba and others, by adding touch-sensitive controls for media playback to the touchpad. Other features includes a choice of T7x00, T8x00 or T9x00 series mobile Core 2 Duo processors, built-in WiFi in all the available flavors, a Hybrid TV-tuner and a SATA hard drive ranging from 200 to 500GB in size.
