Review Asus N10E

 

Asus N10E is one of the lastest additions to the broad range of A ...

Good Workmanship ; User-friendly keyboard ; Quite good connectivity ; Capacious and fast HDD ; Low noise level ; Moderate temperature increase ; Relatively long battery life ; Excellent touchpad ; External DVD drive available for surcharge

Considerable weight ; Unfavourable location of the loudspeakers (hidden at the bottom)

The final question: Is the N10E worth it or not? Definitely, if you are looking for a small notebook that can handle standard office tasks with ease

ASUS N10J-A2

 

This premium netbook, aimed at business users, offers switchable graphics, a huge hard drive, and a speedy instant-on OS.

The $799 ASUS N10J-A2 is a premium netbook that stands out from the competition for its very good graphics performance, large 320GB hard drive, and speedy Express Gate OS. For business users, we recommend the HP Mini 2140 ($529) over this netbook...

Asus N10 (Intel Atom N270 Processor 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM)

 

It may look like your standard netbook, but the Asus N10 is unique because underneath it features discrete, switchable graphics. You'll pay a bit more for the privilege, but the end result works for moderate gaming-on-the-go, as long as you don't mind...

Switchable dedicated/integrated graphics chips, Decent keyboard, Excellent battery life, especially with GeForce graphics turned off, HDMI port and ExpressCard slot are useful bonuses

Low screen resolution won't appeal to all gamers, Underpowered Intel Atom CPU is far from ideal for graphics-heavy applications, and cripples gaming performance, High price

ASUS N10Jc-A1

 

The N10Jc's advanced features cater to small businesses, advanced users, and folks looking for something extra in a netbook.

Switching graphics. HDMI-out. Discrete nVidia graphics. Reasonable $650 price point. Six-cell battery comes standard. Biggest keyboard on a netbook yet. Ample features. ExressCard slot.

Clunky looking. Heavy.

ASUS N10Jc - Review of the ASUS N10Jc Corporate Netbook

 

This 10-inch mini-notebook drops the Eee moniker and adds discrete graphics, instant-on, and other premium features for a reasonable price.

Impressive graphics performance, Sharp 10-inch glossy display, Express Gate instant boot environment, Good battery life, Fingerprint reader and HDMI port

Relatively heavy, Switching graphics required reboot, No integrated mobile broadband option

We were similarly pleased with the feel of the N10Jc's touchpad, which is spacious and similar in size to those on mainstream laptops. It offered a textured feel as we navigated around the desktop, and the two mouse buttons below are easy to click,...

Asus N10Jc Mini-notebook

 

The N10Jc is a fantastic choice for mobile workers, but its relatively high price puts it out of reach for many.

An Nvidia GPU lurks inside ; HDMI out and biometrics in a mini-note

Glossy screen is hard to see in daylight ; A little on the pricey side

Asus continues its admirable habit of bundling useful software with its mini-notebooks. On the security side, along with the fingerprint reader and Protector Suite QL, you get basic biometric lockdown for your data. Other goodies are a basic...

ASUS N10JC-A1 Review

 

The N10 is designed a step above other netbooks, with a better paint scheme and chrome accents. The shape is slimmer than the 1000HA we just reviewed, but the thinner shape comes from the battery sticking out instead of down. While some people get hung...

Improved cooling over previous Eee PC models ; Good battery life ; Slimmer design over 10” Eee PC 1000 ; ExpressCard slot for expansion ; HDMI output from a netbook

High price tag (compared to consumer netbooks) ; Dedicated graphics don’t really improve HD video decoding or mild gaming ; Keyboard doesn't feel as comfortable as other 10” netbooks

With a price tag nearly 50 percent greater than other netbook models, even more when compared to new HP and Dell offerings, it seems ASUS might have priced themselves out of the consumer market with the N10. Of course, the price tag is still perfectly...

Premium netbooks: Good value or oxymoron?

 

With smartphones becoming smarter and larger laptops becoming cheaper, are higher-cost netbooks worth a serious look? We look at four of them.

Light and thin, extra-wide screen, Bluetooth and GPS, beautiful design and finish

Disappointing performance, expensive, small keys

Without a doubt, the newest and hardest netbook to get is ironically also the most expensive. Sony Corp.'s $900 Vaio P attempts to raise the netbook bar by putting the emphasis on size, weight and style.
