Marketing Information

ASUS B Series notebooks are designed specially for small to medium-sized businesses. With the B53 and B43 Notebooks, ASUS prides itself on providing quality-tested technologies and innovative business solutions.

Strength. Lightness.
Beauty. Seamlessly integrated.

MacBook Pro is machined from a single piece of aluminium, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It's called the unibody. And the first time you pick up a MacBook Pro, you'll notice the difference it makes. The entire enclosure is thinner and lighter than other notebooks. It looks polished and refined. And it feels strong and durable - perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack.

The Mac is designed to provide the best computer experience you can have. Everything just works. And everything works together. That's because Apple makes both the hardware and the software. So whether you're accessing a Wi-Fi network or organizing your photos by faces or video chatting with friends, it's all amazingly simple. And that's just the beginning.
