ASUS Smart Logon

  • Quick Logons through Facial Recognition
    Continuing with the tradition of breaking tradition, ASUS introduces a whole new way in which users logon to their computers—through facial recognition. The SmartLogon system detects the user's face and logs on without any intervention from the user. This system is designed to learn the variations of the user's facial features, and is capable of performing detection in different lighting conditions.


  • Super fast transmission speeds with USB 3.0
    ASUS notebooks are the first to feature USB 3.0. It delivers transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps, or up to 10 times that of current USB2.0 standards. This allows for faster transfers of large files like HD movies. Devices even recharge faster with 900mA charging; while USB 3.0 incorporates some environmentally-friendly features that save energy – it puts devices in idle or shuts them down when not in use. *USB3.0 speeds quoted are in accordance with component specifications. Actual speeds may vary by configuration and devices used.
