Expert review by : Rory Reid (

Asus W2Vc


A good multimedia laptop with a great screen and strong all-round performance.

Attractive chassis ; Great widescreen display ; Comfortable keyboard ; Good multimedia support

Noisy and slow DVD rewriter drive ; Front-facing audio ports ; No digital video output

It's also a capable gaming system. Its ATI Mobility Radeon X700 graphics chipset is good enough to run most titles. Far Cry chugged along at a respectable 37.43 frames per second. Doom 3 ran at 27.1fps, and it achieved a commendable 3DMark 2005 score...
