Reviews for the Asus F3SV

70% Asus F3SV-B1
Source: Laptop Mag English
The F3SV-B1 offers excellent performance and lots of multimedia bells and whistles at an affordable price. Asus proves that you don't have to spend two grand to own a powerful notebook. Featuring fast Nvidia graphics and Intel's Next Generation Centrino Duo Technology, this system has more than enough muscle for Vista and even for 3D gaming. It's not the sleekest machine on the block, but you get a lot for your money. The 14.2 x 10.8 x 1.5-inch Asus F3SV-B1 features a subdued black and silver color scheme and weighs 6.5 pounds (view photo gallery). That's significantly more than the 5.8-pound Sony VAIO FZ, but that notebook costs about $400 more when similarly configured, and it comes with the less powerful Nvidia GeForce 8400M GT graphics card. This system rocks Nvidia's more powerful 8600M GS card. We liked the keyboard; the keys are well spaced and responsive, which makes them conducive to both gaming and typing.

Asus F3sv-A1 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Asus name has been synonymous with quality notebooks, and the F3sv-A1 certainly exemplifies it. The F3sv-A1 is a replacement for the previous F3j line of notebooks, sporting a new build, motherboard while still preserving the high-end yet budget gaming experience. I purchased the Asus F3sv-A1 for $1,425, and received a 3% cash rebate via Fatwallet, bringing the total to $1,383. The notebook feels very sturdy and professional. The chassis is entirely made from strong plastic. The F3sv does not seem painted, so I suspect there won't be any lifting of paint on the palmrest. The notebook has a business like professional design. While Asus touts this notebook as a gaming notebook with a lot of horsepower, there isn't any sign of geekiness that its bigger brother the G1S has. The entire notebook feels strong and well constructed. With the help of the battery pack, the notebook is raised in the rear portion to further heat dissipation. The notebook arrived packed very neatly in a sleek corrugated cardboard box with a plastic handle.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 / 7700 for laptops and technically a higher clocked 8400M GT. The performance is slightly above the 7600 / 7700 and, therefore, it can represent DirectX9 games fluently. For DirectX 10 effects, the power of the card is not sufficient.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.

15.4":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3 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.
