Luxurious Hairline-textured Metallic Design
The new design uses premium materials to seamlessly blend art with technology. The etched-hairline metallic cover, ripple-like speaker mesh, and illuminated ASUS logo create an attractive and elegant look that has earned a 2012 red dot design award.
Numerous patterns were considered towards a high-end audio device feel. ASUS designers developed new multi-layer etch production to merge the speaker mesh into the anodized aluminum surface, with around 20,000 perforations in the final product resulting in elegant sophistication that promotes clearer sound.
