ASUS showcased Satin-brushed Aluminum and NeoWood notebooks

ASUS, which reshaped the notebook industry with innovations such as the use of genuine Moso bamboo paneling on notebooks, showcased two new finishes that do much more than just beautify its products: Satin-brushed Aluminum and NeoWood. The Satin-brushed Aluminum finish, produced through Non-conductive Vapor Metallization (NCVM) technology, not only infuses treated surfaces with an elegant satin-brushed pattern, it provides scratch resistance, enhances the structural strength of the notebook, and improved wireless and Bluetooth performance.

The NeoWood finishing technique, which produces a high-strength wood grain veneer that looks and feels like real wood, is a first for the consumer electronics industry. It delivers all the benefits of real wood, including premium looks and natural tactility, while maintaining a level of resilience that far surpasses that of regular wood.

ASUS notebooks featuring the Satin-brushed Aluminum finish include the N81Vf, N60Sf and N51Vn, while the NeoWood finish can be enjoyed on the N60Sf.


Satin-brushed Aluminum

The result of an innovative application of Non-conductive Vapor Metallization (NCVM) technology, ASUS' Satin-brushed Aluminum finish is a perfect example of form meeting function. It preserves the elegant coloration, luster and satin-brushed pattern of real brushed aluminum, yet offers vastly improved scratch resistance and strength. Another benefit of the Satin-brushed Aluminum finish is that it eliminates the interference of RF signals, which other metalized finishes such as aluminum cannot do. As a result, notebooks boasting the Satin-brushed Aluminum finish enjoy substantially improved 3D antenna efficiency and therefore greatly enhanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth performance. ASUS notebooks featuring the Satin-brushed Aluminum finish include the N81Vf, N60Sf and N51Vn.

NeoWood

ASUS' NeoWood finish combines the familiarity and comfortable tactility of natural wood with the high tensile strength of modern synthetics. It looks and feels exactly like the wood used in high-end furniture, yet has much-improved hardness, friction resistance and abrasion resistance properties than regular wood. Notebooks that feature the NeoWood finish, such as the ASUS N60Sf, not only look breathtaking, they are structurally stronger as well.

Re: ASUS showcased Satin-brushed Aluminum and NeoWood notebooks

"ASUS NeoWood notebook" is it really having wood surface. I doubt because it may be just a slim coating of wood or may be even lacking that sometimes. We will see if this is true when it comes to market.

Also ASUS includes some useless netbooks that they can't sell just because of their specifications and this is the reason why they are trying some or other way to increase their sale.
