Asus, the well known brand in the market with its graphics and motherboard products, now has a new reorganization in notebook market. Asus has excellent range of notebooks with extremely high configuration and latest technology. Asus also providing attractive designed notebook as well.
Its Lamborghini series notebooks already rocking the market and now again there is good featured notebook in popular 15.4" display series is here. My discussion point will be its performance, features with advantages and disadvantaged also.
What we can aspect from any notebook that is here. Means it has good processor with better speed and features. With the Intel Core 2 Duo T8300, clock speed of 2.4 GHz and front size system bus speed is about 800MHz. I also want to mention here its L2 cache size and that is 3 MB. Now have a look on the processor, and it is extremely good in notebooks in presently available processors. It has adequate 2.4 GHz of clock speed and that is good enough to run any latest applications or games. System bus speed is also good with 800 MHz, and it is better than 667 MHz which is common in many other notebooks with its processor. So as considering this it has good enough speed and we processor is as per latest technology and trend.
Chipset is also provided latest Mobile Intel PM965 Express, for better Windows Vista experience and this is upgraded latest chipset from previous PM945. Have a better fun with latest Aero experience in windows Vista and enjoy it.
As considering internal memory it has something common 2 GB of DDR2 SDRAM with 667 MHz of speed and this RAM is good, but slightly lower speed with compare to latest 800 MHz RAM. But I think there is no major effect due to its speed and it can handle latest applications easily and I had never experience any differences between 667 and 800 MHz of speed RAM. Also support maximum 4 GB of RAM, but I think they have to provide 4 GB RAM, because as per considering its configuration it deserve for 4 GB RAM. But good point is here is its graphics card, will discuss next.
Second internal memory is its hard disk drive and good capacity hard disk available in this notebook with 250 GB - Serial ATA-150 - 5400 rpm disk drive. I want to say here that Serial ATA drive with moving parts is something less reliable, because I have faced problems of hard disk crash many times and I have lost some important data also. Now the time is for SSD drive that is more reliable and has a very less chances of data loss. But that is new technology and price is also very high so that we will wait for price fall and will keep that in future.
Now the Graphics...
Asus always trying to give what is better, and here also this notebook has excellent graphics capability with NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS TurboCache supporting 1280MB, and total available video memory is about 512 MB. What we can get better for notebook that is here. Notebook is extremely good for latest applications and thrilling gaming experience. It has display size of 15.4" so that for better gaming experience 17" notebook are recommend, but it is made for applications. So have more fun with better graphics memory from Asus. Thanks for providing such a graphics.
Other features are something like common with compare to all other notebooks and need not to explain here.
Bottom line and final words
As per my choice I will prefer this notebook with its attractive design and fully loaded with latest features. Price is also reasonable but slightly high. Have a fun with its excellent graphics and processing speed. Recommended .
