Reviews for the Asus W6
Source: Reg Hardware Archive.org version
Asus' W6Fp grew on me, but you either like the leather or you don't. There's no doubt it makes for a notebook that stands out from crowd, and while the W6 is no Apple, it has an individual quality that many buyers will like. Think the leather looks tacky or just too low-tech? You're not going to buy this machine no matter what. Me, I was more impressed by the size and weight, and by the performance. But then you can get all that from other, less fancy looking machines - and cheaper ones, too.

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.

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.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.
