IPS panels can process high speed signals without data loss by using copper wiring with low resistance values. They have clear images and a stable response time.

ANSP™ 3D Sound Technology

With Studio and Broadcast audio equipment you can add spacious effects to audio streams, such as “Panorama”, “Ambiance” and “ Reverb” to restore more vivid reflection.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0
With transfer speeds of 480Mbps USB 3.0 offers upto 40 times greater bandwith than pervious USB formats such as 1.1. The best thing about it is that USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, so even though there are few devices out there at the moment which will use the full potential of USB 3.0, your USB 2.0 devices will still benefit from faster transfer speeds.

Fingerprint Scanner
In a time where security is king, you can't get much more secure than having a biometric fingerprint scanner integrated onto your laptop!

Save time inputting passwords when logging onto your Microsoft® Windows® operating system by simply stroking your finger over the scanner, which will instantly log you in.

Also useful for other applications, which means you don't have to keep records of all your passwords - they're right on the end of your finger wherever you go!

Mini Display Port
PC gamers require a system that enables them to see everything, and doesn’t lag. This often means turning to high-powered graphics cards and multi-display set-ups. DisplayPort is quickly becoming the interface of choice because it delivers the highest resolution support, highest refresh rates and deeper color depth, ensuring nothing is missed. DisplayPort also allows users to drive multiple monitors through a single cable, creating an immersive experience without the clutter. With designed-in support for 3D stereo transmission, DisplayPort is the ideal gaming interface for now and the future.

HDMI Output Connection
Connecting your computer to your HD devices just got easier! With the built in HDMI OUT port, you can stream your images and videos straight to your HD device, such as your flat screen TV or HD monitor for ultimate clarity when playing games or video editing!

Optional 3G & GPS
Ensure mobile connectivity with optional 3G & GPS devices.

2.0MP Webcam
With an integrated webcam as standard, there is no time lost in connecting external webcams and no extra weight and messy wires to carry around.
