The 2020 Asus E-series of notebooks win a Red Dot Design Award
The Asus E series is a line of affordable laptops with a range of screen sizes. However, they also feature the OEM's innovative NumberPad, by which the trackpad can turn into a virtual form of the keys in question. This spec has been found in more expensive models from the same OEM in the recent past.
These new budget PCs also have NanoEdge, which give a screen-to-body ratio of up to 84%, depending on the variant. On that note, their series comprises the Asus E210, E410 and E510, which have 11.6-inch, 14-inch and 15-inch displays respectively. The former has a resolution of HD only, whereas the second also has FHD options, one of which also has viewing angles of 178°.
All of those panels are anti-glare and cover 45% of the NTSC color gamut. The E210 and E410 also offer the 1.1-2.7GHz Intel Pentium Silver N5000 CPU, 4 or 8GB of RAM and either 256-512GB PCIe SSD or 64GB-128GB eMMC memory. They also feature USB type A 2.0, type A 3.2 gen 1 and type C 3.2 gen 1 ports, along with a 2.5mm combo jack and HDMI.
Both of these student-directed laptops also have the option of keyboard back-lighting, and come in Peacock Blue, Rose Gold or Dreamy White colorways with a unique grid-motif on the rear panel made up of partial Asus logos.
The OEM has yet to release this much detail on the E510, although it may well have internals very similar to those of its new siblings. However, it has mentioned that all 3 can yield up to 12 hours of battery life. To date, there is no pricing or availability info on this interesting new E series.
