Reviews for the Asus R2H

Asus R2H UMPC Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Asus R2H UMPC is a device, like other UMPCs, has a bit of an identity crisis. It certainly can't replace a laptop or desktop as an everyday PC, but it's too large to replace a PDA. If you have specific needs and you know the R2 might fit those needs given its feature set, I can't say it's not worth trying the R2 out. The cool factor is high for having GPS, a web camera, wi-fi and Bluetooth all crammed into this pretty looking device. I'll definitely say it's been a fun toy to play with. But I can't shake that feeling that it is a bit of a toy and not much more than that. If Asus had of put in something better than the atrocious Celeron M 900MHz processor it's a device I would have wanted to play with a bit longer, but alas they did not. The cost of the device at around $1,000 makes this device worth recommending to curious geeks with a bit of disposable cash to spare, but outside of that the audience is limited.

Review: ASUS R2H UMPC Review (Pics + Specs)
Source: notebookforums.com English
Overall this UMPC has good looks, has a big screen and exceptional quality. This UMPC is more designed for people who want to do light tasks and sit on a bed and read some articles. It can do some browsing, menial tasks, but don't expect much out of this. I recommend this to journalists, light writers, laid back people who want to be connected to the internet everywhere including laying back on a couch or a bed. I would also suggest users to get the optional keyboard for the R2H for easier use.

The R2H is solid as a rock, and at 1.8 pounds, it sits in your bag like one, too. It'ssmooth to the touch, almost slippery - so be careful not to drop it while your fingers fly over the well-placed, responsive joystick. Wired: Fingerprint scanner, 1.3-megapixel camera mounted above the screen for Web conferencing and self portraits. Integrated GPS receiver for maps and navigation. Tired: Slowish. Sound is weak and flat. Loud, inefficient fan.

Comment

Intel Extreme Graphics 2: Intel Extreme Graphics 2 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Intel 852 / 855 GM, GME, GMV chipset for Centrino, Pentium 4 and Celeron based laptops. It is hardly suited for 3D-games. No Aero support.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.


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


7.2": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


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.

Asus reviews


60.5%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
