Asus W5


A built-in, swiveling Webcam highlights the Asus W5A. This small, off-white laptop shows its stuff on a 12.1-inch WXGA wide screen, and the entire notebook weighs just 3 pounds without its power adapter. You can record video or snap stills at all...

The W5A comes with a printed manual and a thorough Acrobat-based manual (although the latter has no links, making it difficult to search-navigate. Two black carrying cases-- a full-size nylon one and a soft slip-on--are included

ASUS W5 laptop review


Let's get something out of the way first; when we were first shown the W5 we were informed that it was designed with female notebook users in mind. Apart from the fact that you can get this notebook in either icy white or in a lacquered black colour,...

Choice of colours, built-in web-cam

Poor graphics

With looks to match its performance, Asus has put together something a little special in the W5, which is destined to be a winner.
