ASUS has let loose a stack of info about its first two multimedia laptops that are based on the Calpella platform and use Core i5-520M 2.4GHz processors.

The N82JV-VX020V is a 14-inch model whilst the N61JA-JX008V uses a 16-inch; both of which are LED-backlit displays that run a native res of 1366x768.

Other specs that remain consistent between the two models is 4GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, 8-in-1 card reader, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, HDMI output, USB 3.0 support (via one connector + 2 x USB 2.0 connectors), Bluetooth and a 6-cell battery.

Apart from the screen sizes, the only other notable difference between the two is that the N61JA uses a Mobility Radeon HD 5730 1GB for graphics, whilst the N82JV runs a GeForce GT 335M 1GB setup (together with Optimus tech).

Both notebooks are said to hit EUrope in mid-April at a price of 1049 Euro each.
