Review BenQ Joybook S61

 

BenQ Joybook S61 is the first subnotebook with an integrated TV t ...

very solid chassis with metal braces, neat screen, powerful WiFi antenna

too much noise of some elements (DVD drive, Touchpad buttons, right arrow key), tiny Touchpad, poor optical drive from Philips

Lighweight, good battery life, doubles as a media center

Even though battery life isn't exceptional and great TV reception isn't guaranteed, the Joybook S61 is sure to impress most users thanks to its liberal slathering of work and entertainment features.
