Asus W7S User Review

 

ASUS has slowly and steadily gained a reputation for churning out quality yet still affordable laptops. Whilst still establishing its brand in the US market, this Taiwanese company has a bigger presence in the Asian and European regions. For this...

Toggle volume switch ; Location of USB ports ; Bluetooth mouse and laptop bag bundled ; Good screen and viewing angles ; Quiet fan ; Solid build ; Card reader ; 2 year global warranty ; Sleek styling ; Latchless system

ASUS W7S

 

The ASUS W7S offers powerful performance in a small portable package, and considering that it has discrete graphics, we were surprised it had excellent battery life.

Integrated Webcam, TPM security chip, Discrete graphics card, Long battery life

Design could be more aesthetically pleasing, Only three dedicated shortcut buttons, Expensive

Asus 13.3" U30Jc Laptop, Optimus-Enabled Mobility

 

It seems like just yesterday that we commented on how many new CULV notebooks had hit the scene, and how Intel had seemingly hit the proverbial sweet spot. These low-voltage Core processors fit perfectly between high-end netbooks and low-end mainstream...

Fantastic Value at Sub-$900 ; Gorgeous Aluminum Design ; Great Trackpad and Keyboard ; Stellar Multimedia Playback ; NVIDIA Optimus

Glossy Display ; So-so Battery Life ; Added Bloatware ; No USB 3.0

In our SiSoftware Sandra tests, the Asus U30Jc stood up quite well against the competition, thanks to its Core i3-350M. The NVIDIA Optimus solution, which seamlessly switches between the integrated Intel GMA set and the discrete GT 310M (512MB) GPU,...

Asus W7S Laptop

 

It might not look as good as an Apple MacBook, but the thin-and-light Asus W7S still shines with its pearly white (or black) case. Plus, it offers excellent features and performance.

Attractive, lightweight design; solid performance; competitive price; comes bundled with extended battery pack, wireless mouse, and carrying case; two-year warranty comes standard

Only one upgradable DIMM; generates substantial heat; cramped keyboard

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Worked six weeks in eight months

 

It is very difficult to find a phone number for support. Twice, they lost my address or email. Parts replaced at random without explanation. Support group has less knowledge than I do. ASUS has an LCD problem that they will not admit to. ASUS had a...
