The M51Ta from Asus revolutionizes the way you get your entertainment on the go. Plus it has features to increase your privacy and productivity. They've 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 use the fingerprint reader by the touchpad for additional security. It also doubles as an audio visual control panel at the flick of a switch. The keyboard has a numeric keypad, something that is usually found in larger notebooks.
All of this functionality is great, but useless in isolation. That's why there is a plethora of wired and wireless connection options. Circling the shell are 4xUSB, 1xFireWire, 1xRJ-11, 1xGigabit Ethernet, 1xHDMI and more. Wireless connectivity includes 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth V2.1.
