Reviews for the Asus W2P
Source: Pocket Lint
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.

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.
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.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
