The ASUS M50Vm-A1WM sports a WiMAX-ready connectivity and a bunch of specs worthy of it being called a desktop replacement model.
For starters, the ASUS M50Vm-A1WM seems to have a very long model number, worthy of being used as my alphanumeric password. It is actually a variant of the ASUS M50Vm.
Aiming to become a desktop replacement model, it features a 15.4-inches WXGA+ screen, Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26 GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS graphics card with 1024MB of memory, 250GB HDD, 1.3MP webcam with swivel, 4 USB ports, 1 Express Card slot, 1 Firewire port, 1 HDMI video output slot, an 8-in-1 card reader, and a good old 56k modem.
All these nifty features weigh a whopping 6.5 lbs. The ASUS M50Vm-A1WM has a 6-cell battery, but no word on its battery life, though. It’s being sold at Newegg for $1399.99.
