Reviews for the Asus A7JC

40% Wouldn't waste my time again
Source: Ciao.com English
Advantages: Not many, decent screen size, remote control TV; Disadvantages: Breakdown, Bad Service, Buggy, Windows XP media edition; ...time with this laptop or ASUS again. When the laptop was actually functioning it seemed to be okay. The product is shipped with Windows XP media edition which allows the use of a included TV remote control. The screen size is big enough to make it a decent TV/DVD player. I found that the TV was a little too soft sometimes even on the maximum computer volume so i bought some peripheral speakers which solved the problem.

90% Asus A7J 17-Zoll Core Duo Notebook Test
Source: PC Perspective English
It wasn't too long ago that 17 inch laptops were considered excessive and its usefulness questionable, but today we are seeing an increasing number of people ditching their noisy desktops for larger laptops that are just as functional while being somewhat portable. The Asus A7J 17 inch laptop we are reviewing today is marketed as a media laptop, but goes much further than that. With a Intel T2300 Core Duo CPU and dedicated ATI Mobility Radeon X1600, you can certainly do a lot more than just watch movies. The Asus A7J has a lot of strong features that make up for just a few minor quirks in design. The super sharp 17" display with the Mobility Radeon X1600 256MB adapter will keep most people happy whether you're watching a DVD, playing games, or viewing photos online.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X1600: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 is a middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X1000 series. Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)


T2400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.9 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
