Asus has made available the ASUSPRO Series BU400, a business-specific ultrabook with security features.
The ASUSPRO Series BU400 Ultrabook delivers a slim and elegant product that weighs just 1.64Kg, packed with durability-enhancing capabilities, including carbon reinforced construction. It features optional NVIDIA NVS 5200M business graphics, and passes the ASUS quality assurance testing, with anti-shock hard drives to protect data from harm. User comfort is addressed by the keyboard and smart touchpad, plus an optional touchscreen is available (BU400A SKU, available January 2013).
The BU400 also incorporates security and management features such as self-encrypting storage, TPM, and Intel Anti-Theft technology.
In January 2013, ASUS will begin offering the BU400A SKU with a multi-point touchscreen for users who prefer a more natural hands-on approach
In terms of processing power, the BU400 applies 3rd generation Intel Core processors with vPro technology. Additional Intel-based features include Intel Small Business Advantage, and Intel Smart Connect. Storage uses a smart self-encrypting design that makes data highly secure, while Trusted Platform Module hardware and fingerprint readers further guarantee controlled access so confidential information remains well-protected. Intel Anti-Theft technology and Computrace LoJack for Laptops help users retrieve lost or stolen notebooks, and offer remote data and operating system locking to prevent intrusions.
