Reviews for the Asus W2J
Source: PC Perspective
The Asus W2J is the best thing if you want a media center in a box but also want the functionality of a portable computer. The bundled remote control, TV tuner, and multitude of audio and video inputs and outputs make this a media powerhouse that is hard to match. Using the laptop as a HTPC from the couch has a certain appeal, and the fact it's portable enough to bring along with you onto the road means you never have to be without your favourite shows. You can even listen to FM and broadcast stations easily which could be fun to use while on a train or a long commute.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1600: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 is a middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X1000 series. Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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)
