Last year, Asus unveiled a ridiculous – and ridiculously cool – laptop concept called Airo. It was razor-thin, boldly styled and most importantly, interesting. Today, they’ve unveiled the final product, and its… a Core i7 gaming laptop with some extra edges.
There’s nothing expressly wrong with Asus’ new number; actually, it’s a solid option, if you’re into desktop replacement laptops. It’s got:
• backlit keyboard
• rear to front cooling vents
• 1080P screen
• ATI Mobility HD5870 with 1GB RAM
• BD option
• And of course, a Core i7 processor.
Again, it’s fine, but it’s no Airo: this is a perfect example of how a product goes from optimistic concept to product line-filler, in just a few months.
