Asus have come up with a unique concept of watching slideshows without having
to open a notebook. This 12.1” notebook comes with an external auxiliary display
on the cover of the LCD which lets you view photos, meeting schedules, phone
numbers and play music. Based on Intel’s latest Santa Rosa platform, it comes
with 512 MB RAM and has a mobile Intel 945 GM Express chipset. It also has a
host of other features such as a 1.3 MP Web Cam, Bluetooth, FireWire port,
memory card reader, etc. It weighs around 1.7 Kg, which is pretty comfortable
for a frequent traveler. The keypad is well designed and quite comfortable for a
12.1” notebook.

It scored 3419 in PCMark05, which is slightly lesser than Acer Travel Mate,
but still reflects a good high-end application performance. The lack of a good
graphics processor in the notebook was evident from the score of 225 in 3DMark06
but a battery backup time of around 4 hours is fabulous; more than what we got
from Acer Travel Mate or Connoi FL-91. Its Vista performance was also at par
though a higher RAM would have given it an extra edge.

Bottomline: A limited edition product,
it’s meant for those who desire exclusivity and class.
