ASUS M70Sa-X2

 

The ASUS M70Sa-X2 has everything you can possibly imagine on a laptop. So what's the downside?

A terabyte's worth of storage. 4GB of memory. 1080p screen. Fast processor. Every A/V feature imaginable. Blu-ray drive included. 1GB of video memory.

It's heavy.

ASUS M70 review

 

The Asus M70 is the most fully loaded laptop we've seen in a long while. Aside from its massive terabyte of hard-drive space (enough to hold a few hundred movies or a few hundred thousand MP3s), the multimedia system incorporates a Blu-ray drive and a...

Upscale, CE-like design; full HD-resolution screen with handy automatic display settings; Blu-ray drive and 1TB of storage; multimode touch pad; full complement of ports and connections; decent battery life.

Large and heavy; 32-bit OS leaves 1GB of RAM sitting dormant; midrange GPU does not offer top-notch gaming performance; doesn't ship with a Media Center remote.

You can find Blu-ray-equipped desktop replacements for less, but no other media laptop currently offers as many features for the price as the Asus M70.

Review: Asus M70 1TB

 

We can't think of too many legitimate scenarios where we'd need to carry a full terabyte of data with us on a laptop, but that...

Surprisingly good battery life (over 1 hour, 40 minutes) for a 17-inch rig. Dual hard drives allows for mirroring (and perfect, instant backups). Precise loud speakers, including bottom-mounted subwoofer

Very buggy even under minimal load. Extremely dim LCD, even at max brightness. Awkward case design requires punching a difficult-to-reach button to open the lid

Asus M70Sa-X2

 

Traditionally, desktop-replacement laptops get little respect: They're often dissed as being overweight, unattractive, and pricey. Lucky for them, things are turning around. Thanks to the proliferation of high-definition screens and multiple hard...

The ASUS M70Sa-X2 is a fully loaded desktop replacement laptop (1 terabyte of storage!) that makes few compromises.

Review Asus K70IC Notebook

 

Big performance. The Asus K70IC is a 17 inch multimedia notebook ...

Good Altec-Lansing loudspeakers ; Dual-Core-Processor and dedicated graphics card ; Attractive exterior ; Cool

but not always quiet ; display with only moderate quality ; short battery life ; heavy

That Asus manages to keep the case very cool, despite the high power consumption of the processor

Very good, strong processing; Dual mode touchpad; The layout and distribution of Ports; Sound system; Sub-Woofer; Shipped with carrying bag and mouse; Good battery life

Review Asus M70S Notebook

 

Multimedia vs. Gaming. Apart from the Asus G70, a notebook specif

Extensive interfaces (HDMI, eSATA) with user friendly alignment; Gigabit LAN, WLAN n-Standard, Bluetooth, infrared; Blu-Ray drive, integrated DVB-T tuner, webcam; Spacious keyboard with separate number pad; Display with wide viewing angles and good...

Turbine like fan noise under load; Short battery runtime

Battery runtime of the Asus M70S failed to impress in the test, despite relatively large 5200mAh Li-Ion battery. 104 minutes DVD replay, respectively 134 minutes in wireless LAN mode are not really enough for proper mobile usage.

Asus M70S Review

 

Notebooks have always lagged behind desktops in speed, screen size, and until recently storage space. Asus released two new laptops, being the M70S and M50S, both of which hold the claim as being the world's first laptops with 1TB of storage space. To...

Every feature under the sun, except a builtin toaster ; Runs cool and quiet ; Onboard Blu-Ray player ; Great looking WUXGA screen

4GB of RAM and an operating system that can only see 3GB ; Lots of bloatware

The Asus M70S is a great multimedia notebook to compliment any home theatre system or dorm room setting. Not only is this notebook capable of holding 1TB of movies, games, or music, but it can also tune digital HD channels and easily cope with most...

ASUS M70SA

 

With a mass of storage and a large breadth of features, the M70SA from ASUS is a solid performer and a decent media centre/desktop replacement to boot.

Reasonable speakers, High resolution screen, Blu-ray drive, eSATA port, HDMI, Monster storage, Reasonable battery life for the size

Dual-function trackpad can easily be switched by accident

Traditionally, desktop-replacement laptops get little respect: They're often dissed as being overweight, unattractive, and pricey. Lucky for them, things are turning around. Thanks to the proliferation of high-definition screens and multiple hard...

The M70Sa-X2's cover uses inlaid patterns similar to Toshiba's Fusion design, in which linear patterns are topped off by a layer of gloss. The 17-inch widescreen is spectacular. It, along with the Gateway P-7811FX, is among the few systems that offer a...
