ASUS W7S-B1B Review


Looking for a 13.3-inch notebook with a great screen and fast performance? Look no further than this four-pound beauty.

Beautiful screen, Solid performance, Great design, Lots of extras

Some shrunken keys, No dedicated multimedia buttons, RAM maxes out at 1.5GB

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

Exhaust vent on right hand side ; Generic speakers ; Enter' and 'Backspace' key a bit short ; Short battery life ; Bloatware ; 512MB onboard RAM ; Palm rest and keyboard gets uncomfortably warm

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 Review and Ratings


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

Consumer review (

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...

Looks good

After six weeks of ownership, the LCD became erratic. Sent it back for repair in October, 2013 and finally got it back on April 21, 2014. The display now not working in another mode. After three hours with the support group, got another RMA and it is...
