Asus S6F

 

No bigger than a portable DVD player, the sleek, ultraportable ASUS S6F ($2,200 street) has a built-in optical drive and a DVD-friendly widescreen that allow it to function just like one. But unlike those dedicated DVD devices, the S6F can compute as...

Fit for travel. Integrated optical drive

Cramped 92-percent keyboard. You can only buy it on the Web
