ASUS launch new S Series netbook, and its ZENBOOK the same positioning for Ultrabook laptops Computer Applications Show in 2012, both the maximum power of the difference between S series pen equipped with a large-size 14-inch and 15 inch screen, the hardware The specifications also use third-generation Intel processors, but whether it is built-in memory and lithium are the upgrade and replacement, storage If you think the hard part of the original configuration of HDD + SSD hybrid hard drive performance does not match the demand, you can also directly will replace and upgrade the HDD, Ultrabook series of laptops most people criticized the image performance, S Series is also configured to improve performance discrete graphics, user experience is really different and generally common Ultrabook, and today a small Devil To you test machine equipped with 15-inch screen S56C Ultrabook below to quickly look at the test in this article.
The ASUS S56C use Carton packaging is different from the ASUS in the past used a black or blue color, this changed to brown tones. The main reason is the packaging using environmentally friendly materials crafted all of the packaging 100% recycled. To clap before the first out of the box sticker outside the box attached to the hardware specifications for your reference, below I will also be described in detail. Not only outside the box to use a brown tone color, even outside the box to mention the brown design. After open the box you can see the laptop lying quietly inside the box.
Friend bought a ASUS laptop for ASUS will be randomly attach a laptop to incorporate the package, but in addition to different sizes, the design is basically the same. Electric transformer accessories There are a USB wired mouse, inside the box to attach the special pen, software CD and manual, warranty card and instruction manual for a product serial number of the anti-virus software.

The S56C screen and ASUS S56C Battery superstructure has a brushed aluminum with black matte coating as a whole is a kind of minimalist design style. In the screen above the front-end design black plaque blocking the battery wave interference.

First to see the power input terminal and the configuration of the cooling holes, this S56C laptop vents also changed to adoption and past square cooling hole design. Finally, the RGB terminal, HDMI terminal, RJ-45 wired network terminal and a USB 3.0 port. Open the screen superstructure can be seen after the 15-inch screen configuration, and ZENBOOK different places is that the The S56C screen is a mirror screen design, plus anti-glare coating, so the photo to see less reflective problem. LED backlight panel screen resolution is only 1366 X 768, compared to ZENBOOK of 1920 X 1080 Full HD is still not quite the delicacy of the screen showing.

SC56 design of the button size is moderate, the bond length is not too shallow, as a whole percussion comfort is pretty good. Another keyboard attached to a separate numeric keypad, and button size design is smaller than the main keyboard some, but from the design the same case to avoid inadvertently touching the case. Large monolithic touchpad, and ZENBOOK should be the same design, the use of sensitivity and comfort is pretty good. In addition to support multi-touch, of course, support the functionality of gestures, the use of gestures can be seen in the built-in ASUS Smart Gesture software.
