Asus V1Jp-AK023E

 

This Vista Business laptop has a distinguished look and performance to spare. It weighs in at a fairly portable 6.5 pounds, and includes a very sharp, very bright 15.4-inch screen. At $1749 (as of 5/9/07), it's reasonably priced for a 2-GHz Core 2 Duo...

Perhaps the first question you need to ask yourself about this notebook is; why would you want to spend £1400 on a machine when you can get a machine with a decent specification at a similar weight for half the price? On the surface you'd be hard...

Dual-core, great battery life, solid build quality

Asus V1J review

 

The V1J doesn't come cheap but it offers very solid all-round performance and will suit a wide range of users thanks to its fingerprint reader, spill-proof keyboard and high resolution, non-glossy display
