Reviews for the Asus W2JC

83% Asus W2JC
Source: PC Pro English
Asus has never been afraid of building big, fast notebooks, and the W2Jc takes this a step further by placing TV and all-round entertainment at centre stage. It's not just the huge hard disk, dual-core processor and dedicated 3D card that make it stand out, it's the array of extra components that Asus has managed to pack into the 395mm-wide chassis. The integrated TV tuner is the central player. It's a hybrid analogue/digital card, and - unusually - Asus uses its own software rather than choosing Windows Media Center Edition as the OS. The DVI port on the W2Jc is also unusual in being an HDMI port (Asus provides a converter to DVI-I), so it's compatible with most high-definition TVs.

Comment

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)


T2300: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.3 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.
