ASUS W5Fe - The First SideShow Notebook

ASUSTeK Computer also introduced the new W5Fe - the compact 12" wide notebook with SideShow, external auxiliary display on the LCD cover.

The W5Fe, based on the W5 series design, is a two-spindle system packed with a high-resolution swivel webcam, card reader slot and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR/

SideShow is an independent operating system that it can be switched on without booting up the whole system. With imbedded flash memory, users can save selected data to SideShow, in forms of text, image and audio, for later review. The external system is well synchronized with the main operating system that users can set for automatic Outlook (emails, calendar and meeting appointments) update when the main system is powered on for swift refresh to ensure data consistency.

The W5Fe's auxiliary display is a short cut to viewing a wide range of information, including meeting schedules, phone numbers, addresses, and recent e-mail messages. On the entertainment front, the outer display can be used to view photos, play music and games such as Solitaire. In addition, SideShow can even act as the mobile navigation device and guide the way with map display.
