Asus has teamed with electronics maker Bang & Olufsen to create a multimedia system with some pretty unique features.

ASUS NX90 Bang & Olufsen laptop is designed by award winning B&O Chief designer David Lewis.

While at first it looks like a mounted LCD or plasma TV, this is in fact an 18.4-in display notebook computer.

The exterior and palm rest are polished aluminum while the touchpads and keyboard are a matte black.

The twin touch pads are situated on either side of the keyboard, representing another break from the typical laptop.

This feature allows the user to essentially control the computer through multi-touch with both hands working simultaneously.

Of his design, Lewis says, “The customer wants a bigger laptop good enough to enter the living room and take the central position.

The user cares about what he has in his house and does want to have quality items. Also, he may not be afraid to stand out a little from the crowd.”

Asus says the touch pads “provide users with an intuitive DJ-like control,” and work with Microsoft’s Windows 7 multitouch gesture controls.

The NX90 features an Intel Core i7 CPU (either 7200QM or 8200QM), an 18” 1080p display, Nvidia GeForce GT 335M graphics card, dual hard drives, and a slot-load Blu-ray drive.

Expect prices to be in the $1,799 to $2,499 range.
