Asus W5F review

 

Asus' W5F is a great-looking notebook. Its graphite-coloured chassis and blue LEDs make it the most stylish computer here.

The W5F is a stylish and powerful ultra-portable notebook with all the features you're ever likely to need. It's not particularly light, though, and its battery isn't great.

Stylish, powerful and great value for money, the Asus W5F gets our vote with bells on

Asus W5F

 

A compact laptop that includes unexpected extras such as an integrated optical drive and webcam, but is expensive against similarly specced rivals.

Attractive white chassis ; Integrated optical drive in a portable package ; Good speaker quality ; Integrated Webcam

Expensive ; Poor image quality from the onboard camera
