Asus A46 slimline 14in laptop debuts

Dainty and lightweight Win Pro laptop packs 1GB of nVidia graphics

Asus has announced a new 14in-screen Windows 7 Professional laptop that packs a surprising amount of graphics processing power: the Asus A46 comes primed with 1GB of nVidia GeForce GT540M DDR3 memory. This is paired with an Intel Core i5 Sandy Bridge processor, a 500GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM. The 64bit Windows 7 laptop has a 1366x768-pixel display and an HDMI input so it can be hooked up to high-definition media sources. USB 3.0 ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, VGA webcam, Ethernet, media card slots and a 10-hour battery all feature.

The lithium-ion battery can be further bolstered with USB+ - a feature that Asus says enables faster charging of USB devices plugged in to the laptop. The USB+ charging function works even if the Asus A46 is switched off.
