Reviews for the Asus R1F

Asus R1F
Source: Inside HW English
The packaging that ASUS R1F arrives in is just like any other at first glance. Using a highly trained and sophisticated move, we open the box and find a bag and another two boxes. We take the more elegant one and find cables, battery and the rest of the package inside, but no laptop. We take the other box, which is rather simple-looking, and open it, only to find a fourth box inside. OK, someone really decided to lengthen that sweet impatience every buyer has. Safety is becoming more and more of a factor, so ASUS R1F is equipped with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM), and the fingerprint reader is an additional form of protection. Alongside all sorts of hardware solutions, ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence is something worth mentioning, as it provides a better image quality.

Asus R1 Tablet PC with Vista User Review
Source: Tablet PC Review English
The Asus R1 is my first laptop, plus it is a Tablet PC, which in my opinion makes it worth the money. I am completely happy with my purchase and would never pick another computer. If this computer was stolen or destroyed I would not hesitate to get another R1. There are very few cons to this computer. The pros are overwhelming, I mean this computer is fast and efficient. Not only that, but it has an attractive design and the Tablet factor is astonishing. I recommend this computer to everyone. It took me a while to think of cons for this computer, as you can see below they are super minor. Great computer!!!

Asus R1F Notebook to Tablet PC Convertible Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Considering all the features you get for the price, which is affordable at around $1,500, it is hard to pass up on the Asus R1F if you're looking for a notebook with the added Tablet PC functionality. It features good performance with its Core 2 Duo processor and ample storage with up to a 120GB hard drive. It's not too heavy or too big to take on trips or hold while standing for awhile. If you use the Splendid Video Technology movies look great, despite some graininess due to the Wacom screen layer. The plastic housing is a little cheap feeling, but the R1F is still durable. The plastic housing helps keep the cost and weight down as well. I enjoyed the R1F in both notebook and Tablet mode, nothing beats writing on the screen especially when you are in a hurry. The screen can double as one big post-it-note and the R1F definitely helped keep me organized.

Touch me! - Test Asus R1F

I've mentioned a lot of good things about the R1F, because it really is great - it's a quality machine inside and out. So I'll only mention the cons - which for me is the scratches on the tablet pen (because of the pen-slot not being smooth on the inside), the plastic notebook casing (I wish it was metal!), and the non-airbag fitted hard drive (such as the IBM X-tablet). Other than that, if you want the best tablet PC cheaper than other like brands, the R1F is the cream of the crop. The Fujitsu T4210 has a smaller screen, doesn't have a sharp design and is more expensive, and the Toshiba R25 looks boring, is heavy and looks boring. They were my 3 contenders. ASUS R1F can be proudly named Ms Universe of tablet PCs (for now).

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

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 Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)


T2400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 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.
