Reviews for the Asus UV6

UV6 Bamboo
Source: Star Techcentral English

Aesthetically, the bamboo theme gives the UV6 a classy look that is very attractive.

Relatively lightweight, the notebook is great to work on and even play games, albeit with the graphics toned down. It’s great that the notebook comes bundled with two batteries so users can use one based on their needs. However, the onscreen notifications are intrusive and gets in the way when running programs in full screen. Also, for a relatively high-end notebook, it is surprising that the UV6 doesn’t offer better speakers than the built-in mono one. Another disappointment is the trackpad’s lack of multi-touch or gesture based commands that would’ve made navigation easier. At RM6,588, the UV6 Bamboo is a premium notebook that is designed for portability and performance on the go.

Comment

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).

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.


P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.9 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
