Reviews for the Asus F70Sl

Review Asus F70SL Notebook | Notebookcheck
Multimedia in 17.3 inches. The 17.3 inch Asus F70SL tries to appeal to the broad mass of final consumers in a metaphorical fancy dress. Apart from this, it aligns itself in the starter multimedia range with an Nvidia Geforce 9300M GS and tries to score with its multimedia features and a high resolution. Read here, about how the notebook has complied with our test criteria.
50% Asus F70SL notebook
Source: Pocket Lint English
It’s a shame we can’t wholeheartedly recommend the F70 due to its keyboard layout and design, as it was rather uncomfortable to use. It wasn’t a minor niggle on our behalf or as a comparison to the usual laptops we use. We do test 100s of notebooks, netbooks and their ilk - this was the first we’ve ever taken an issue with on that very subject. The F70 does curiously have a similar depth of their W90 £2,399 monster that we reviewed recently. The casing is certainly a factor in its bulky overall build, we are very much struggling to work out why a similar chassis was used as it does take away a certain quality in what could have been a good notebook.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS: Compared to the 9300M G, the GS has only 8 unified shaders but a higher clock rate. Therefore, the performance should be similar according to Nvidia. Supports 
Hybrid-SLI (GeForceBoost and HybridPower) with Nvidia 9100M G and PureVideo HD (VP3).

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

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.


T5900: Merom based Core 2 Duo that was later succeeded by the similar specified and Penryn based T6600.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3":

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.

3.847 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.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
