The Denver Post, 12/23/2007:
In a twist on the old RCA advertisement showing a dog listening to its master's voice coming from a phonograph, Asus has created a laptop that uses its camera to scrutinize the user and, if the master's face is familiar, lets the person log on without a password.
The laptop, named the U6, scans the face, examines the proportions and then identifies the user.
It is aimed at style-conscious users willing to pay a premium for a computer that weighs only 3.6 pounds including the battery and DVD burner. The exterior cover comes in either a lacquered brown (the U6S at $1,800) or a glossy white (U6E at $1,750).
The laptop also is dressed up with a pebbly leather palm rest that matches the cover and frame, a touchpad for moving the cursor and, for those who don't trust the camera, a fingerprint scanner.
