The Taiwanese PC maker ASUS is reportedly getting ready to introduce two new powerful laptops, dubbed N56 and N76 that were showed off at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier last month. Both models are aimed at multimedia lovers and casual gamers and are expected to hit the stores in the second quarter of this year.

The new N56 and N76 are equipped with HD+ (1600-by-900 pixels) or Full HD (1920-by-1080 pixels) widescreen displays measuring 15.6-inch (N56) and 17.3-inch (N76) in diagonal. Furthermore, these notebooks will supposedly come with third-generation Ivy Bridge Intel Core central processing units, a discrete NVIDIA GeForce graphics controller (perhaps the GTX 670M manufactured using 28nm technology) and a Blu-ray Writer.

ASUSTek’s latest N Series portable PCs will reportedly sport 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory and a rotating (5400RPM/ 7200RPM options) HDD with a storage capacity of up to 1TB. Other features include an illuminated dust-repellent chiclet keyboard, Instant-on technology for fast boot and resume times (2-second resume) and an integrated front-facing HD web camera for video conferencing.

Price is yet to be confirmed by the manufacturer.
