Reviews for the Asus A8JS

80% ASUS A8js
Source: Laptop Logic English
The Asus A8JS is an excellent laptop for those who relish the muscle it provides. It has powerful dual processors, fantastic graphics speed, and DVI! This is a great foundation for a portable gaming or design system for users who want to keep it on a desk hooked up to an external LCD monitor or take it out and about. Compared to other laptops, the bloated pre-loaded Asus software made it difficult to tweak the system to my liking. Also, invest in a pair of good headphones if you have any plans of audio enjoyment, the speakers are just for show. At an MSRP of $1499.99, its graphics power and mobility will be difficult to match by a comparably priced notebook.

Asus A8Js Review
Source: notebookforums.com English
I was looking for a laptop that was mid-sized, with but good performance, and able to play games. But it had to be mobile enough, because I plan on using it for college. I looked at the Dell XPS 1210 and the 1710, as well as the Alienware m5550. the 1710 was too big an expensive. The 1210 was great, but just not good enough a GPU for gaming, and the screen wasn't a great size for games, either. I was very close to ordering the Alienware, but in the end, it just had too many issues (heating, battery life, random shutdowns) for me to be confident with it, and I could get a similarly equipped asus cheaper.

The A8Js is a mixed success. It's portable, and the good keyboard and reasonably sized screen make it practical. But the screen is only adequate, as is the battery life - less than three hours isn't good enough for those with long journeys to work on. If you're looking for good gaming performance, the A8Js may suit you, but you should bear in mind that the Sony VAIO VGN-FE31H also offers at least some 3D power, a brighter screen, 20GB more hard disk space and much better battery life, and that costs just £684.A fast and well-designed notebook, but let down by an average screen and poor battery life.

Asus A8Js Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
This is a laptop where it’s hard to go wrong. My one complaint would be the battery life, but for the price and the feature set it’s a small complaint among many praises. This laptop is exactly what I was looking for and it should last me on through law school. Hopefully its gaming prowess won’t prove to be too much of a distraction during my studies. I would recommend this to those gamers who like power but don’t want to lug around unwieldy 17” desktop replacement laptops. Asus has found the niche between thin and light and desktop replacement and I applaud the A8Js for fitting my needs so perfectly.

The Asus A8Js is a sleek thin-and-light machine with a focus on gaming and multimedia. At $1,499, you're not likely to find a lower-priced notebook with this much 3D-graphics power. The silver-and-black chassis weighs 5.2 pounds, and is comfortable in the hand thanks to the system's rounded edges. Flip the lid and you'll find a sharp-looking silver keyboard deck with a full-sized black keyboard. The keyboard is comfortable to use, though the glossy touchpad takes some getting used to.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7700: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7700 is the successor of the NVidia GeForce Go 7600 video card for notebooks. It is built in 80nm process and its performance is between GeForce Go 7600 and 7600 GT. 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.
T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14.1":

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


80.25%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
