Reviews for the Asus W5
Source: What Laptop
Making a bid for a wider consumer market, Asus has launched its latest multimedia laptop, the W5 (£1408 inc. VAT) directly at the home user. The first sign of this decision comes in the choice of chassis – you can opt for standard black or you can show a little more fl air and choose the arctic white edition. We chose to look at the white version, but both models share the same feature set. The compact nature of the chassis means that at 1.8kg, the W5 is light and easy to carry. For those who need even less weight, a smaller 3-cell battery (£45 inc. VAT) can be fitted, as opposed to the standard 6-cell.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
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 typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
