LCDs & Graphics 13.3" XGA LCD

With our unique relationship to Samsung Electronics Corporation, a world market leader in the design and supply of LCD panels, AST is able to bring to market the latest Super VGA and XGA TFT LCD technology. The Ascentia M Series incorporates a range of color LCD panels to meet corporate customer demands whether for a value system or for the latest and greatest technology. To accommodate the larger form factor of the 13.3" LCD there is a slight incremental addition to the length of a notebook PC. On the Ascentia M Series, this added space has been utilized by our system designers to provide the user with a more generous palm rest and "desktop equivalent" keycap form factor. This will make it more comfortable for the touch typist, as well as the everyday user.
