This notebook delivers a fairly well-configured gaming system with enough power to achieve impressive scores on our benchmark tests.

Good battery life. Sleek aluminum case. Priced well.

Older model Pentium M processor. Low-end graphics chipset.

The W1N's reasonable price, elegant design, wide screen, and good performance make it a great choice for multimedia buffs and gamers who don't have the dough to blow $4,000. Its powerful components, durable aluminum case, and long battery life will...

Does Asus' notebook make Microsoft's Media Center OS redundant?

Tons of integrated functionality ; Widescreen 15\" LCD ; Easy access to media files ; Good battery life

Somewhat iffy construction ; Noisy DVD burner ; Confusing remote control

We tested the W1N with Bapco's MobileMark 2002, where the unit recorded scores of 195 in the productivity test, lasting two hours thirty-seven minutes. In the less intensive reader test, the W1N conked out after three hours and nineteen minutes -- an...

This is Awesome

Everything I Wanted and More!


I love this notebook. My grocery list included lots of memory, ports,and speed. It surpasses all of the other notebooks I considered in the price range, especially w/ the $xx.00 rebate New egg offers. My order was sent on a Monday and I received it on...

Tough notebook that works great


I've had the W1N for 9 months now and it's performed beautifully. The screen is great and I love the aluminum body. ASUS customer support is also fantastic - I dropped the notebook from about 4 feet onto a hard floor and broke a screen hinge. ASUS...

ASUS w1n NoteBook Intel Pentium M 735(1.70GHz) 15.4" Wide SXGA+ 1GB Memory DDR333 80GB HDD 5400rpm DVD/CD-RW Combo ATI Mobility Radeon 9600


This laptop was definately a great buy. The quality of the flatscreen is high definition, even though I have a dead pixel; you can hardly see it. I recommend all Asus products.

"Good in its cl****"


I think this notebook compares favourably with others in its price bracket. It's got enough power and multimedia features to be a desktop replacement, and the minimalist design look quite elegant.
