Review Asus R510CA-CJ862H Notebook

 

Temptation in red. From the technological point of view, the R510CA offers nothing more than your standard features. Noteworthy are the touchscreen and large hard drive. But the computer's big attraction is its red attire.

Red case, 24-month warranty, Runs quietly, Display has no blue cast, Display offers good color values, The red case and that the notebook runs quietly

No Haswell processor, Expensive, Meager battery life, Low-contrast display, A better battery life and a better display

Review Asus Eee PC R051PX Netbook

 

One more please! Asus has released the next addition to the Eee P

Good workmanship; Matt display; High brightness; Long battery life; Low noise emissions; Low temperature emissions

Weak contrast; Weak program performance; No Bluetooth; USB 3.0, eSata and HDMI are not available

Whether the tablet boom falls or rises, Asus remains faithful to its netbooks (primarily).

Review Asus Eee PC R101 Netbook

 

Display Miracle! The Eee PC R101 is the new start model in the Eee netbook family. The specs sound very interesting: Intel Atom N450 processor, matt 10.1 inch screen and Windows XP Home for a low 249 euro. We've put the device through its paces.

High-quality workmanship and haptics, Plain design, Price, Brilliant display, Good emission rates, Performance (office), Undisputedly: the matt, bright display with an excellent image contrast

Connectivity, Moderate battery life, Poor loudspeakers, Extendability

ASUS R700t

 

ASUS' latest navigator is chock-full of features, but tries your patience.

Impressive 3D building views ; Free lifetime traffic ; Two preview modes for planning routes ; Includes Bluetooth

Entering navigation mode takes too long ; Traffic software often got stuck ; Unit sometimes didn't shut down properly ; Finding POI is a hassle

The R700t has some excellent features and a decent price, but it has a ways to go before it's the ideal driving companion. For s the ideal driving companion. For $399 we expect spoken street names and more up-to-date and comprehensive POI.99 we expect...

Asus R700t review: Asus R700t

 

While best known for its computer components and motherboards, Asus is branching out to all sorts of consumer electronics, including GPS. The Asus R700t is one of its first portable navigation devices, and we must admit we're pleasantly surprised. The...

The Asus R700t portable navigation system features a slim design and has an integrated traffic receiver. You also get a complimentary subscription to the traffic services, integrated Bluetooth, and 3D building renderings.

The R700t doesn't include text-to-speech functionality, route recalculations weren't always efficient, and general performance can be slow at times.

For the company's first stab at the GPS market, the Asus R700t is an impressive debut, offering some great navigation features. However, we'd like to see the addition of text-to-speech functionality and smoother performance before completely committing...

Asus R700t GPS Review and Ratings

Asus R510J #ExpressReview: Perfect machine for your next LAN party

 

From its design to performance - gaming is in the DNA of Asus R510J, after all this machine is meant for hard-core gamers.

I don’t have any doubt about the abilities of this gaming machine. It does work really well but there are definitely few shortcomings here.

Asus R510J Review

 

Anti-glare display Decent full-HD gaming performance

5400rpm drive; no SSD Heats up a lot while gaming No backlit keys Average battery life

The Asus R510J is priced at Rs. 69,990, which feels a bit steep considering you can get the updated R.O.G GL522JX with a faster hard drive, backlit keys, HD webcam and better CPU for a bit more. More than the specs however, you'll be getting a much...

fast laptop

 

Recommend on performance but not the screen.

Big step up in performance from my previous laptop. Clean looks like new

Keyboard feels a little cheap Screen is dull. Colours are not bright either. The brighter the back light the worse
