The Sony SZ seemed underpowered in terms of graphics capabilities compared to the other candidates and the W3J seemed too expensive and lacked a webcam. A fast and well-designed notebook, but let down by an average screen and poor battery life. Battery life is decent, lasting over two hours for most tasks, and performance was more than acceptable. Finally, the last button launches some sort of Asus media center. This bonus from the MilestonePC Group Buy program was a nice perk especially since I was in need of a wireless router.

Multimedia is high on the agenda, and you’ll find a DVI-out port on the back of the case, so you can hook it up to a HD Ready projector for larger images. Please share our article, every link counts!

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with inch display-diagonal weigh as much. Asus A8Js left side view view large image. All of this can be relatively difficult to do, and for now there really isn’t much point as the fastest Core 2 Duo processors aren’t significantly better than the T Asus has found the niche between thin and light and desktop replacement and I applaud the A8Js for fitting my needs so perfectly.

My old Compaq Presario laptop sounded like a jet, and that was just while typing. Included was a carrying case which says Asus Design on it and an Asus optical scroll-wheel mouse.

The graphics chip is capable of powering the display at its native resolution in most games, although there are a few titles that struggle unless you either turn down the resolution or turn down the detail settings. As you would expect from the compact design, the keyboard is rather cramped.
