The ASUS N61Jq is designed for audiophiles who desire multimedia entertainment while on-the-move. To further enhance and deliver the best audio experience, a marriage of both hardware and software innovations were required. SonicMaster audio technology was developed by highly-trained audio experts from ASUS's Research and Development team, and fine-tunes sound energy, noise balance, volume and dynamic sound range, minimizes environmental interference and sound distortion, and enhances sound separation.

ASUS is the first to introduce the new USB 3.0, capable of providing a bandwidth of about 5Gbps or around 10 times the bandwidth of the current USB 2.0 bus. USB 3.0 is capable of transferring 500MB from a 2.5-inch HDD in 1 minute 41 seconds, compared to the 3 minutes and 49 seconds of USB 2.0 in the exact same conditions. This allows for faster transfers of high definition data, such as movies and videos, as well as various other large capacity file formats. It also charges USB-chargeable devices with 900mA, faster than the 500mA of current USB 2.0. Finally, the USB 3.0 helps to extend battery life, suspending operations when it is in idle mode
