Reviews for the Asus W2PC

67% Asus W2Pc
Source: PC Pro English
HD DVD and Blu-ray systems have been making sporadic appearances in PC Pro for a few months now. We've seen two machines from Sony with Blu-ray drives - the VAIO VGN-AR11S notebook and the VAIO VGX-XL202 media centre - as well as the laptop debut of HD DVD in the Toshiba Qosmio G30. The Asus W2Pc has a chassis that we've seen before, but a number of specification changes, including the important addition of an HD DVD drive, make this an interesting revision. HD fanatics will love the large, bright TFT, but its cutting-edge technology comes at a high price.

Comment

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. » 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.
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.
17.1":

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.

3.6 kg:

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


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).


72.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
