Reviews for the Asus F5R
Source: Comp Reviews
The ASUS F5R offers some unique features for a low cost laptop computer system. For one, it features a 1.3 megapixel web camera built into the LCD display bezel. It also packs into it a Bluetooth transceiver into the system that lets it communicate with various peripherals. This certainly makes it more useful for the business traveler than the system is geared towards, but there are a number of problems. Powering the ASUS F5R is the Intel Pentium Dual Core T2080 mobile processor. This is bit of an odd selection as more and more budget oriented laptops are featuring the full Core 2 Duo processors that even support 64-bit software. The big issue though is the 512MB of PC2-5300 DDR2 memory with it. This is half what the average budget notebook comes equipped with and is the bare minimum for running even the Vista Basic operating system. Don't expect much in terms of performance from this with some significant upgrades.

In conclusion the Asus F5R is a basic notebook that will fit the needs of a mainstream user. However, the weak points are battery life, older Core Duo processor instead of the current Core 2 Duo technology, and keyboard with flex. For the price of $900 USD, this notebook does offer a great swivel webcam and a nice chassis design though, and is worth a look if it fits your needs and budget.

ATI Radeon Xpress 200M: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M is the shared memory integrated graphic card from ATI based on a X300 core. In general it is a bit faster than the Intel GMA 950 graphic core.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.
