Reviews for the Asus F8VA

70% ASUS F8VA: who's this for again?
Source: APC Mag English Archive.org version

It should be obvious by now that the F8VA is capable of dual duties; desktop replacement and media machine alike. But the sad fact is that it doesn’t excel at either. As a desktop machine the price is too high, and it’s too heavy to take on the road. The battery won’t last the trip either. Yet as a multimedia machine, it needs a bigger screen to make the most of the Blu-ray drive and speedy processing power. However, if you need a laptop that spends equal time in both the study and the lounge room, overlooking these minor flaws shouldn’t be too hard if it saves you from buying two separate machines.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650: The Hd 3650 is a middle class graphics card (in 2008) and compareable to an 8600M GT GPU from Nvidia. It is fabricated in 55nm process and due to Avivo video engine the graphic card can support the processor with several video operations (HD video too).

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.


P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

14.10":

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.

2.4 kg:

Usually, old laptops with 14-16 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).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
