Reviews for the Asus F8P

Asus F8P Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
There's little debate that for the average user, the Asus F8P is a respectably powerful device. Even for users requiring higher-than-average computing power, it holds its own. What's more ambiguous are the F8P's styling choices: the machine's looks are definitely love-it-or-hate-it. To my eye at least, the all black version has a more refined, less outlandish feel, with its more muted appearance potentially having broader appeal. Stylistic considerations aside, the F8P strikes a good balance between performance and portability, providing enough of both to make this a viable single-computer solution for many users. Battery life could be better and high screen gloss is an irritation, but beyond these issues the F8P is a polished, solid total package. Ultimately, if you're comfortable with the way it looks, the F8P is a computer that proves to be comfortable for the way most of us use our notebooks.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400: This DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI is the direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS graphic card for laptops. It features the Avivo HD video engine. The performance is not enaough for DX 10 games and high settings.

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

14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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.

86%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
