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.

Asus W5F


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

Expensive ; Poor image quality from the onboard camera
