Asus A8JR-4P021C

 

The $1099 (as of 5/9/07) A8JR-4P021C has the makings of a quality notebook for worker bees limited by their company's tight budget. It lasted exactly 2 hours in our battery tests, well below average for a small laptop but enough to tide you over for...

Well equipped, Inexpensive

Poorly lit screen, Battery life could be better

A dim screen is the only significant drawback on this otherwise solidly performing and reasonably priced laptop.

Asus A8JR

 

The Asus A8JR is a solid, reasonably-priced notebook with some very stiff competition.

Very good performance • Attractive new design • High-res screen

No multimedia control buttons • Needs better speakers
