Reviews for the Asus F80
Source: Bright Hub
While I would love to give this notebook a four star rating, the battery life simply killed it for me. The number one thing a laptop has to be is portable. This one dies before you can really get started working on anything. You can't watch more than half a movie without having to plug it in and this is with it in a power saving mode.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470: Faster clocked HD 3450 and successor of the HD 2400 XT but with DirectX 10.1 and due to the new 55nm process, higher clockspeeds. Avivo HD video functions allow the decoding of HD videos.
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.
T5850: Merom based Core 2 Duo entry level dual core processor on the performance level of a Core 2 Duo T6500.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
