Package and Accessories

The notebook is packed into a blue-and-white box with a Stylish Mobility slogan. The notebook’s ability to change its performance level in order to increase the battery life is not mentioned, though.

The ASUS Green label on the side of the internal box reports that the notebook complies with the RoHS directive, being manufactured without such hazardous substances as lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium or polybrominated flame retardants.

There is a rich selection of accessories inside the box. Besides the notebook proper, it contains a 6-cell 4800mAh battery, a power adapter with LED indicator, a modem cable (RJ-45), a TV cable, documentation (“Quick Installation Guide”, 2-year warranty certificate, a list of authorized service centers worldwide, user manual, etc), a black Bluetooth mouse, a napkin for cleaning the LCD panel, a HDMI → DVI adapter, a bag and a pouch to carry the notebook around, a cable brace, an external 120GB HDD in a leather pouch and two cables (USB and eSATA), an external GPS antenna (the notebook comes with a GPS module), and a set of discs. The discs are:

  • System Recovery DVD No.2298
  • Driver and Utility version 2.0 (No.2451)
  • Nero 7.9.6.2

  

  

  

The mouse is colored black and glossy to match the notebook itself. Its bottom and the separator between the buttons look like shiny metal to comply with the overall design style. The mouse is shipped in a fabric pouch together with a user manual and two AA batteries. To change the batteries, you should pull the top panel back, away from the buttons.

  

The LG GSA-T20N DVD-burner is external to reduce the notebook’s dimensions and weight. It has a standard black case as we’ve seen with other ASUS products (for details see our article called Asus U1F: Ultra Compact High-End Notebook) and is connected to the computer with a special cable that combines a USB and a power connector.
