A notebook covered in leather? Yes, we’re talking real textured cowhide here. ASUS, a leading provider of high-performance notebook computers, offers more luxury computing options with the leather bound notebook this holiday season. The 13.3-inch widescreen W6 new Leather Collection brings a wide aspect visual satisfaction with the exceptional compact mobility. Its chassis is covered in genuine cowhide leather, which is so authentic that it even comes with “markings such as scars, wrinkles and grain variation”, according to ASUS. The camel or brown colored Asus W6 laptops incorporate Intel’s Core Duo or the new Core 2 Duo processor, while the S6 features Intel Core processor L2300 or L2400. Accompanying the laptop is a matching carry case and mouse, both of which add a touch of class to the overall package.
This is one notebook you’ll want to show off to your friends, and you’ll certainly have no trouble doing so thanks to its ultra-portable form factor. It boasts a weight of just 1.37kg with the three-cell battery (1.53kg with the six-cell) and dimensions of 270mm by 191mm by 22.5-37mm, so you won’t need hulking biceps to carry it under one arm. Meanwhile, the compact S6 Series is now available in fabulous pink – only for a limited number! Unfortunately, as always, beauty comes with a high price, the S6 will retail for about $ 2,705….while we are still clueless about the pricing of W6.
