The Asus W3J-H026P is not an oversized desktop replacement laptop at an easily portable 5.0lbs and 13 x 9.7 x 1.18-inches, but don’t let its fairly standard appearance fool you; there’s a beast under the hood.
Powered by an Intel Core Duo “Yonah” T2500 2.0GHz processor, this beefy notebook comes loaded with a full two gigs of DDR2 667MHz RAM, a 5400rpm 100GB hard drive, and a 14-inch WXGA LCD with a native 1280 x 768 resolution. The ATI Mobility x1600 graphics card has 256MB of dedicated memory, but when the HyperMemory kicks in, that number jumps to 512.
Other key specs include an 8x Super-Multi DVD burner, a trio of USB 2.0 ports, an integrated 4-in-1 media card reader, S-Video output, and FireWire. Staying connected is a cinch, given that the Asus W3J-H026P comes with all three flavours of WiFi, IrDA, and Bluetooth 2.0. A well-equipped unit will run you just shy of $2000, but according to Notebookreview.com, it’s “worth it.”
