Today marks the beginning of a new era of personal computing and ASUS is proud to be paving the way with Qualcomm Technologies and other companies to develop this new landscape for "Always Connected" Windows on Snapdragon PCs. The laptop comes with Qualcomm's X16 LTE modem with speeds up to 1gbps, which is 3-7 times faster than average broadband speeds.
