Dependable Partner on the Go
ASUS R1F Series offer a smart balance of mobility and performance with comprehensive security feature that protects with both software as well as hardware solutions, providing a secure and convenient computing experience for users.

Dual Engines, Double Power
Equipped with the latest dual core technology, the R1F provides enhanced responsiveness to enjoy audio & video playback & record, gaming, IM, and web-browsing simultaneously on your notebook. Moreover, it offers outstanding dual-core performance to enjoy multimedia management and digital content creation.

Improves System Security with Increased Ease of Use
ASUS Security Protect Manager is designed to be secure and easy to use. It improves system security and productivity by consolidating user passwords and network accounts within a User Identity and allow secure and convenient access to registered applications after logon to the ASUS Security Protect manager. Security and privacy are strictly enforced with ASUS Security Protect Manager, so all private data is available only to its owner, ensuring end-to-end security built on consistent, solid and manageable ASUS platforms

Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a security device on the system board that will hold computer-generated keys for encryption. It is a hardware-based solution that helps to avoid attacks by hackers looking to capture passwords and encryption keys to sensitive data.
The TPM allows the R1F to run applications securely and to make transactions and communications more trustworthy. When bundled with ASUS Security Protect Manager, it ensures overall system security, file protection capabilities and protect against email/privacy concerns.

RF Biometric Fingerprint Reader
ASUS R1F Series adopts the unique semiconductor based RF biometric fingerprint scanner. The RF electronic imaging mechanism reads the fingerprint pattern from the live layer of skin that lies just beneath the skin's dry outer surface layer. Therefore, the sensor is less affected by common skin surface conditions, including dry, worn, calloused, dirty or oily skin, that can impair the ability of other sensors to acquire accurate fingerprint images.

Vibrant Visual Enjoyment
To satisfy the most demanding reviewing standards, ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology integrates different multimedia data sources to reduce noise and conversion rate for a sharp display. Users can enjoy vivid image with better contrast, brightness, skin tone and color saturation for all video applications.

Easier and Faster Digital Data Transmission
The ExpressCard™ standard promises to deliver high- performance, modular expansion to notebooks at a lower cost and in a smaller form factor. You will be able to add memory communications and security devices by simply inserting ExpressCard™ modules into the R1F.

Multi-functional Module Bay
Utilize this feature for high application flexibilities while the notebook is suspend. Exchange between hard drives, DVD Super-Multi drive or even a second battery pack accordingly to create the perfect smart machine. Utilize this feature for high application flexibility even while the notebook is up and running. Exchange between hard drives, ODD drivers, battery packs and traveler's drawer accordingly without compromising mobility.

Direct Application Access
A series of fast keys are available for instant launch of entertainment, connection, power management, and color adjustment applications. Located at the top of the keyboard, the keys are easy to access while keeping the keyboard area distraction free.

Spill-Proof Keyboard
The R1F spill-proof keyboard is protected from direct exposure and users will no longer need to worry about the occasional drink spills.
