Asus has announced the renewal of its range of portable K-Series, a family of large multimedia and gaming equipment in diagonal of 15.6 and 17.3 inches which combine good power with a very reasonable price. Though outwardly very similar to the first K-Series in late 2009, the new K-series features Intel Core Second Generation Huron River, a family of 32 nanometer chips based on Intel architecture and incorporating Sandy Bridge support WiMax or Blu-Ray 3D and other features.

Apart from renewing the processors, Asus also raises the bar graphs, models of the series Nvidia GeForce GT500. The most powerful model available for the GT540 is the Geforce K, with 2GB of DDR3 dedicated memory. The use of Optimus Nvidia platform promises a good battery performance, although Taiwan has yet to reveal specifications.

Available in silver or aluminum with a touch of brown, the new K-Series also incorporate details of comfort, as the cooling system IceCool rest or a new system, called PalmProof, which prevents accidental touchpad manipulate by hand or wrist. The K-Series will be available during this month of March and priced between 550 and 750 euros depending on model and internal configuration.
