80% ASUS B23E Review: Almost Everything a Netbook Should Be
Source: Notebookreview.com English
If the ASUS B23E is within your price range, it's a great compact notebook to have. It has practically everything a business netbook needs: portability, decent battery life, solid performance, a good array of ports, as well as a user-friendly keyboard. The build is what we'd call above average because of its magnesium alloy support structure, despite the fact that the display lid is easily bendable. The battery lasted just over five hours during our standard battery life rundown.

60% ASUS B23E-XH71 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ASUS B23E-XH71 has a lot of what business users are looking for, including a sturdy design and powerful security features. This ultraportable is also plenty fast, and it features one of the better keyboards we've used on an ASUS notebook. The ability to switch to a clean desktop with the touch of a button when giving a presentation is also a nice touch. Too bad the B23E runs out of gas too fast. We'd give this notebook a higher rating than 3 stars if it offered better endurance, but for many mobile professionals less than 5 hours just won't cut it.

Asus reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

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


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i5:

2430M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.7-3 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).
