  • The W6 series is bound in leather. "Touching is the guiding theme of Asus products this year," said Markus Wierzoch, design manager at Asus. "Our design philosophy is centred around the user." The W6 will be available in "camel", "crocodile", "pastel", and leather, costing between £1,599 and £1,799 including VAT.

  • The S6 notebook will be available in pink, as well as other colours. "People in the UK seem to like pink," said Wierzoch. Pricing was not available.

  • The W2Jc has an aluminium chassis, a subwoofer built into the base and a hybrid TV tuner that has a digital and analogue receiver. "You can record TV onto a buffer on the hard disk, and Dolby home theatre technology is built in," said Chang.

    The W2Jc is based on Intel's Centrino Core Duo T2500 chip, running at 2Ghz, and costs £1,999.
