80% Asus N80Vc notebook PC
Source: vnunet.com English
Hard on the heels of the most stylish netbook on the planet, the S101, Asus brings us the N80Vc. It's a very stylish 14.1in notebook aimed at the business user, although it would look equally at home in the living room. The Asus design team keeps on coming up trumps. The N80Vc is a well-designed, well-featured notebook, equally adept at home or on the road

100% Asus N80Vc laptop
Source: vnunet.com English
Computer maker Asus is fast becoming well known among home users for its Eee PC range of mini-notebooks but it's still making the larger models such as the N80Vc. Being bigger, the N80Vc is more powerful than its Eee cousins and is somewhere in between being a multimedia computer and business PC, with a 14in screen. Although the screen was supposed to be an anti-glare model, we were disappointed to see that in it still suffered from reflected bright light. This was a shame because it's otherwise an excellent screen, with a crystal-clear picture that made watching movies a pleasure. A nicely sized well-rounded laptop, only let down slightly by screen glare.

A portable laptop offering lots of style, but it's let down by a poor keyboard. The Asus N80VC (£699 inc. VAT) is the second N-series laptop we've seen from the Taiwanese company – the first being the N10. We liked the Asus N80VC, and found it a portable, well-specified machine. It's let down severely by the keyboard, however, and there are far more comfortable and better machines to use.

The N80VC comes in at a price point that, just a couple of years ago, would have been considered the bargain-basement end of the laptop market: a no-frills approach where quality, features, components and even design play a distinct second-fiddle to costs. This is no longer the case, and the Asus is a good example of how much you can actually get for your money. It features enough power to satisfy most users, is stylish and comfortable to work on, and offers great connectivity. It’s just a shame that quality has been slightly compromised, and the keyboard severely lets this machine down. It’s still worth a look - but other laptops, such as Samsung’s excellent Q310, offer better quality at a similar price.

78% Asus N80Vn-A1
Source: Computer Shopper English
Built for professionals who require a bit more 3D muscle than most business notebooks offer, the Asus N80Vn-A1 ($999) delivers solid performance and state-of-the-art security technology in a durable 14-inch chassis. It suffers from a few flaws, however, including subpar battery life (attributable to its discrete graphics) and a temperamental touch pad. The Asus N80Vn-A1offers a nice assortment of business-friendly features and enough horsepower to handle your office workload, but we’d prefer longer battery life from a 14-inch notebook.

Asus reviews


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

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).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT: The GeForce 9650M GT is a higher clocked 9600M GT but because of the die shrink from 65nm to 55nm the current consumption stays the same. The performance of the higher clocked chip should be up to 20% faster than the 9600M GT.

» 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.

T5800: Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.

P7350:

Entry level Core 2 Duo processor with 3 MB Level 2 Cache and due to the 25 Watt TDP also suited for 13" laptops.


14.1: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.6 kg:


81%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
