Its feature set is more than adequate for the average user’s needs these days, but is fairly standard issue, so the only thing that really sets the Asus S6F apart from its competitors is its genuine cowhide goodness, found not only on the outer shell, but also the wrist rest area surrounding the touchpad.
Available in light (“camel”) or dark brown (“dark chocolate”) leather varieties, the Asus S6F is being touted as a luxury laptop with high performance under the hood. For starters, you’ll get a 1.6 GHz Intel Core Duo L2400 processor, a full gig of DDR2 RAM, and an ample 100GB hard drive. The Intel Centrino 945GM chipset handles the graphics, there’s built-in 802.11a/b/g support, and a multi-format DVD writer to boot. Portability was kept at a high priority, keeping the screen to a minute 11-inches (WXGA) and the weight down to about 3 pounds.
The Asus L6F comes packaged with two batteries (one twice as juicy as the other), and the company is guaranteeing no dead pixels. Look for this luxury notebook to start shipping next month for about $3000.
