The ASUS F8P leather notebook series is the ultimate expression of mix and match. The hand picked and crafted premium leather adds tactile warmth to the notebook design while the painted surface keeps it sleek. The built-in WLAN 802.11 a/g/n ensures wireless Internet access whenever reception is available. The F8 also provides Bluetooth 2.0 EDR - an enhanced data rate that transmits three times faster than the standard Bluetooth, for increased connectivity and synchronization between digital devices. In addition, a complete range of input / output ports that includes 5 USB ports, a S-video TV-out port and express card slots will provide you with dynamic data transfer and storage options. The F8 series adopt the unique semiconductor based RF biometric fingerprint scanner. The RF electronic imaging mechanism reads the fingerprint pattern from the live layer of skin that lies just beneath the skins dry outer surface layer. Therefore, the sensor is less affected by common skin surface conditions, including dry, worn, calloused, dirty or oily skin, which can impair the ability of other sensors to acquire accurate fingerprint images.
