A Duet of Style and Sonority

SonicMaster technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, delivers the highest audio fidelity
Designed by multiple award-winning designer David Lewis, whose main client is Bang & Olufsen
Equipped with the new Intel® Core™ processor and ultra-fast USB 3.0 connectivity

Atelier craftsmanship, premium luxury and unprecedented sonic refinement come together spectacularly in the new ASUS NX90, a multimedia notebook for those with discerning tastes in audio and style.

A New Standard in Notebook Audio

The NX90 features ASUS’ exclusive SonicMaster technology, a suite of hardware and software innovations developed in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. Equipped with the best codec and highest-powered notebook amplifier available today, as well as oversized resonance chambers that are ten times larger than those found on regular notebooks, the NX90 effortlessly delivers a wider sonic range, louder volume and deeper bass — bringing audio to breathtaking life.

Sensational Speed

The NX90 features top-of-the-line components and technologies, providing the smoothest computing experience possible. Powered by the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor and equipped with lightning-fast USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, the NX90 is guaranteed to deliver extreme speed both in terms of computing and data transfers.

Notebook Design Remastered
The ASUS NX90 notebook was co-designed with master designer David Lewis, the owner of Copenhagen-based drawing office David Lewis Designers that is known the world over as the main force behind the trademark Bang & Olufsen look. Lewis is the recipient of numerous international design awards, and was awarded the title of Royal Designer for Industry in London in 1995.

A Revolution in Style
The NX90 is destined to become the centerpiece of your living room, a beacon of style and beauty that will add a touch of class to any décor. It is the world’s first notebook to feature two touch pads, positioned at either side of the elegant keyboard, which serve as an intuitive and enjoyable way for you to manage and play your multimedia content. The NX90 is also the first notebook in the world to sport speakers that are integrated into the lid as opposed to the main chassis, as well as a flawless polished aluminum finish realized with the help of aluminum craftsmen.

Stunning Visuals
Conceived as an all-in-one multimedia center, the NX90 is equipped with a full high definition 1080p (1920 x 1080) 18.4-inch widescreen LED-backlit display driven by a powerful NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M graphics processing unit — delivering crisp, detailed and richly-colored images at silky smooth frame rates. It also houses a slot-in Blu-ray combo or DVD Super Multi drive for high quality movie entertainment on the move.

"The ASUS NX90 brings a new dimension to notebook audio. It puts the volume to what you're really visualizing. We really wanted to establish authenticity in the sound, especially with its good speaker system. It's new stuff, it's new sound. It's breaking silence."
