Asus Windows Vista motherboards - some with external display

Asus today presents four new motherboards designed for Windows Vista; the M2N32-SLI Premium Vista Edition, M2N-Plus Vista Edition, P5B Premium Vista Edition and P5B-Plus Vista Edition. One of the special things about the Premium Vista Editions is the included ScreenDUO.

ScreenDUO is an auxiliary display that takes advantage of Windows Vista's SideShow feature. You can use it to view important information without having to start up the PC. ScreenDUO can synchronize information from the PC or websites; display RSS messages, meeting schedules and other important information. This saves the user time and hassle to switch on the PC every time to view vital information.

Some other special features of these four motherboards:

AI Remote
Total control from the comfort of the couch is what AI Remote provides. With just the touch of a button, the user can quickly perform computer activities such as switching the PC ON/OFF; launching favorite applications by enabling the AP Trigger function; or controlling AI Gear and AI Nap. Furthermore, the AI Remote gives the user the versatility of a traditional remote on media player. With an ASUS AI Remote, the user can accomplish so much more with the PC from a distance.

Swift - AP Trigger
The ASUS AP Trigger allows the user to quickly boot or resume media and favorite applications. With just the touch of a button on the AI Remote controller, the user can quickly switch on the PC and launch predefined applications simultaneously!

Trusted - TPM support (The TPM is purchased separately.)
This Motherboard supports Trusted Platform Module (TPM) – which provides enhanced data protection, security via high-level encryption / decryption and platform integrity. The TPM meets the Windows Vista BitLocker Drive Encryption hardware requirement for a more secure working environment.

Accelerated - ASAP (ASUS Accelerated Propeller) ASAP gets you to your destination fast. Supporting the Windows Vista ReadyBoot Function, ASAP accelerates the boot up time and program initiation under Windows Vista™. Enjoy greater efficiency and get more productivity out of your system - ASAP.
