Reviews for the Asus W2Jb

80% Asus W2Jb
Source: PC Mag English
For those of you who don't know, Asus has been making high-end PC products for years. The company recently announced a flurry of new laptops including a UMPC, a tablet PC, and even a Lamborghini-branded model. We looked at the W2Jb ($2,200 street), a high-end desktop replacement. With TV-recording capabilities and a vibrant 17-inch widescreen, this notebook is designed to appeal to the hardcore media enthusiast. The W2Jb tips the scales at 7.9 pounds and is exceptionally stylish. It's only about 1.2 inches thick, and the system's brushed aluminum cover actually makes it look thinner than it really is. It has the kind of rounded rubber feet on the bottom typically found on A/V receivers and standalone DVD players.

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)


T2500: » 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.

3.4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit 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. 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


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
