Reviews for the Asus F5V
Source: Pocket Lint
We’ve grown accustomed to notebooks costing less than £500 and offering basic power for the price, so what happens if you increase your budget a little? The Asus F5v costs £629 (inc. VAT) and comes with a chassis that is well-built and looks good too. The silver and black design may give it a corporate look but we feel it’ll look equally as good in the home.
Weighing 2.7kg, it proved fairly portable and can be carried around with ease but we were less than impressed with the battery life. We managed to get a little over 2 hours from an average charge, which is fine if you’re just sat on the sofa surfing the web but not so good if you need to work on the move.
What makes this notebook enjoyable to use is the large and sturdy keyboard. It’s sat far back on the chassis, so there is plenty of room to rest the palm of your hands, and with a solid keystroke, we found it great to use.

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.
