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).


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

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


AMD Athlon X2:

QL-65: Similar to the Turion X2 CPU, but with reduced power saving functions (no deep sleep, only 2 instead of 3 P-states). Compareable to a 1.3-2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo (depending on the application).

AMD Athlon II:

M320:

Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based only partially on the K10 core. The performance should be compareable to a 1.8 Celeron Dual Core. The CPU supports 64 Bit and Virtualization.

2.7 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

2.7 kg:


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
