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

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...

The ASUS N10Jc is a netbook with advanced features that caters to sophisticated consumers and small-business users with tight budgets.

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.

ASUS N10Jc-A1 Netbook Review - Atom N270


The ASUS N10 is a netbook that combines both elegance and performance in a 10.2 WSVGA netbook that weighs in at just 3.1 pounds. The ASUS N10Jc-A1 offers all the standard features one would expect on a netbook, but it includes switchable dedicated...

ASUS designed the N10Jc-A1 Netbook for the traveling user, and they delivered. With stable performance, power efficiency and the option of using integrated graphics for a longer battery life or discrete graphics for better quality, this netbook is user...

Asus N10J-A1 netbook PC: King of Ultra-portable PCs that comes with a dedicated 256 MB graphics card.


Here is a netbook PC with a difference. Almost every netbook PC has the same features and configuration with Atom N270 1.6 GHz and 1 GB RAM. Asus has launched the new N10J-A1 which has a powerful graphics card with 256 MB internal memory that can be...

Thoughts on the Asus N10J mini-notebook


Back in September we covered Asus's N10J, the 10-inch not-a-netbook. As you might recall, this computer runs an Atom processor and resembles a netbook in almost every way, but packs an extra punch: NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS graphics. It also sells for...
