Super fast transmission speeds with USB 3.0
ASUS laptops 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.
