Reviews for the Asus V1S

87% User-Review Asus V1S Notebook | Notebookcheck
Business goes Gaming – This could be the slogan which Asus could use to advertise the V1S. Intel Core 2 Duo T7300, NVidia GeForce 8600M GT, 160GB hard disk: Is this a business notebook? Absolutely, because it is also complemented by Centrino-Pro functions: Intel Active Management Technology, TPM Security Chip, fingerprint reader, docking port. Together with eSATA-port, Modular Bay and movable 1,3 Mega Pixel camera, this should be the perfect notebook. Does it keep its promise? The following user review should clarify it.

Bread and Games... This article describes another notebook of the Asus V series, a 15.4 inch business notebook which is also fit for multimedia applications. Whilst a non-glare display with high-resolution indicates that business is its intended field of operation, the built-in Geforce 8600M GT video card with 512MB reminds rather on a gaming notebook. Following review describes how this interesting bundle scores.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT: The NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 GT GPU for laptops. Depending on the used graphic memory and the clock speed,  the performance is between the 7600 GT and 7900 GS video card.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.


T7300: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


3.01 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in 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.
