ASUS S6F

 

The ASUS S6F ultraportable laptop weighs only 3.4 pounds, yet still has a built-in optical drive, making it great for watching movies on the go.

Fit for travel. Integrated optical drive.

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

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...

The ASUS S6F has the distinction of being one of the few ultraportables that has a built-in optical drive, yet still weighs less than 4 pounds.

Asus S6F-3037P

 

Tiny machine impresses with its looks and speed but not its ergonomics.

Compact design • Optional leather panels • Fast performer • Very good battery life

Cramped keyboard • Tiny display • Touchpad buttons difficult to use • Limited tech support hours

ASUS S6F (Leather)

 

If you had enough of notebooks engineered from space age composite material that are ruthlessly cold to the touch, then the arrival of the new leather ASUS S6F notebook could well be the best news you heard this year.

ASUS S6F Leather

 

Compact design, first leather notebook, good test scores, 100GB hard disk and in-built optical drive

Price point

The first leather encased notebook on the market, the S6 also performs quite well.

Light, powerful, leather casing

Poor battery life, average graphics, that leather casing

The leather look may not be one we’re accustomed to but it certainly gives the notebook a certain WoW factor that is missing in the current notebook climate. Aside from the looks this is a powerful solution that is only let down by a poor battery life....

Asus S6F review

 

The Asus S6F will turn heads - but is that a good thing?

Head-turning design ; Fast, powerful and comfortable to use

Design not to everyone's taste ; Poor graphic performance ; Expensive

The S6F fits the small form factor bill perfectly. It's elegant, powerful and desirable
