Carbon fiber has long been the top choice of material used in aerospace technology for its unique physical characteristics. The W1 Carbon's LCD cover is made of solid carbon fiber that acts as effective EMI protective shield. By using this material, the W1 Carbon is 60% lighter and twice as tough than that of the notebooks made of aluminum magnesium. Besides the mechanical benefits, the ASUS industrial design team has brought out the physical beauty of carbon fiber with a dynamic design that fully expresses its outward strength as well as underlying resilience.
The built-in DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial) feature allows wireless digital TV broadcast wherever the service is available. To offer a relaxing viewing experience, the W1 Carbon included an ultra-slim remote controller that can be stored in the PCMCIA slot when not needed and an LCM display to show TV channel status, CD tracks, DVD scene numbers and more.
