With a mercury-free LED-backlit display that consumes just 5W in active use and 0W in standby mode, the Asus MB168 Series delivers excellent performance with minimal impact on laptop battery life.With a slim 8mm profile and tipping the scales at just 800g, the MB168 Series is ideal for simple dual-monitor set-ups and presentations. A durable metallic finish with a fine pattern of concentric circles makes the MB168 Series the perfect complement to the Asus Zenbook Ultrabook and it ships with a protective carry case that doubles as an adjustable stand for tabletop use.
