Reviews for the Asus W2P

90% Is HD DVD really that important that you'll pay over the top for it?

When it comes to designed luxury notebooks, Asus is very much in a league of its own. Whether it’s the Lamborghini range, or the its leather finish machines, they have a look all their own. The latest example is the W2P, which isn’t so much an upgrade from the W1 but an overhaul of the whole idea. It’s still built around a stunning 17-inch Super-TFT screen but Asus and fine-tuned the design and finish with stunning results. If you’re looking for the ultimate in style and power and have the money the slash out on both, this machine needs to be on your list. Not only were we impressed with what it has to offer in terms of specification and extras but also it’s a genuine pleasure to use such a well-built notebook.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X1700: Successor of the X1600 and because of strained silicium process it can achieve a higher performance with the same current consumption (more shaders). The Avivo video engine helps decoding (HD) videos.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these 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.


T7400: Former mid range to high end mobile processor based on the Merom core. Compareable to a later produced and more  power efficient C2D P7450.» 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. 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.
