The M50Vm from Asus revolutionizes the way you get your entertainment on the go. Plus it has features to increase your privacy and productivity. The 15.4" screen has an AI Light feature which adjusts panel brightness depending on the level of ambient lighting. They've also included their Splendid video technology with 5 modes and 3 skin tone settings to optimize the image depending on what you are viewing.
The webcam also works with face recognition software so you can log on with just a look. Or, for additional security you can use the fingerprint reader by the touchpad, which also doubles as an audio visual control panel at the flick of a switch. The keyboard has a numeric keypad, something usually found in larger notebooks.
All of this functionality is great, but useless in isolation. So: there's a plethora of wired and wireless connection options.
