Asus U6S Review: Taft Performance

Asus U6S
Asus U6S is inversed approach from Fujitsu Lifebook P8010. If Lifebook P8010 places forward the mobility, Asus U6S is more underline the performance. That thing is seen from inside component specification. Not only because the usage of Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 processor (fastest Intel notebook processor nowadays), but also because the existence of stand alone graphic card, nVidia GeForce 8400M GS 128MB. For your info, the 12,1" class notebook usually only applies onboard graphic card.

GeForce 8400GS actually is including entry-level graphic card, but it’s already can give uppermost 3D gaming ability. Asus U6S successfully reaches great score (1068) at 3DMark 2006, far above the other notebook which using onboard graphic card (300-500).

The usage of GeForce 8400GS also enables Asus to planted HDMI facility. The existence of HDMI in 12,1" notebook which doesn’t have Blu-ray and HD-DVD feature of course questionable, however its still a feature which differentiating Asus U6S with other notebook in its class.

Besides HDMI, feature provided by U6S it’s complete enough. Wireless facility is provided by WiFi a/b/g and Bluetooth, whereas the cable connection is provided by Ethernet. To keep the data is available 120 GB harddisk, which contributed by DVD Writer peripheral. As extras feature its available 0,3MP webcam and fingerprint scan and SIM Card slot (not available for all country).

Though has great machine, this 1,6 kg notebook still try coming up 'beautiful'. This thing seen from the chocolate cover which wrapping the palm rest. The outside which having chocolate nuance also gives elegant impression, and reminds me at former Asus “leather notebook”, Asus U1. The keyboard consisted of 85 balmy buttons. Unhappily, the similar excellence is not found at touchpad and its buttons. The Touchpad felt less sensitive, whereas the button felt hard to be press.

Because its form is small, 12,1" class notebook usually is associated with standard performance and limited facility. But not Asus U6S. The performance is uppermost, and the line of facility seen equivalent (even higher) compared to 14"class notebook. Asus U6S price is around US$ 1659, which felt good match for facility given.
