ASUS Intel Core 2 Duo 2GB Memory 120GB HDD 13.3" Tablet PC Windows Vista Business R1F-K049E
  • Intel Core 2 Duo T7200(2.00GHz)
  • 2GB Memory 120GB HDD
  • Integrated DVD Super Multi

Pros:

I'm very impressed with this notebook. The screen turns very easily and can lock into place, as well as being very sturdy. It's about the size and weight of a standard textbook (maybe a bit thinner) and fits perfectly into a backpack. The processor and Ram are fast and almost necessary for the Operating system. Hard drive is split into two partitions, adding up to about 110GB (Remember, a few gigs of data are already being used on this computer). The tablet function works almost flawlessly, and adds a little more convenience into normal computing on a laptop. The hotkey buttons and fingerprint reader on the screen really do make things faster, too. All around excellent machine. I'd buy another if I had the funds.

Cons:

The first thing that really bugged me was the fact that Vista is so random on booting up and shutting down. For the first few times I started up, the OS was extremely slow to load. It would even take minutes to shut down. However, after playing around with a few settings, things seemed to improve. There are a lot of processes running, and a few of them are completely unneeded. If you have a more advanced knowledge of computing, removing some of these things would be wise. There is also an option somewhere where you can test your computer's capabilities, on an out of 5 rating. The diagnostic rated the computer 3.1 performance-wise, based on how well it handled Vista and how well it could handle advanced graphics. Other areas were fine though (high 4's). Also, the fingerprint reader is still a bit buggy, since it isn't able to read a few of my fingers.

Other Thoughts:

I got this notebook in the interest of being able to do some college work. I was thinking of getting a different laptop, but this one was the most versatile. I came in sort of jaded in regards to Vista, after all of the bad things I've heard... but I think I'm warming up to it. I really wish this laptop had a dedicated video card, as it might help with performance a bit, since the tablet functions require more processes. But as long as you're not expecting a graphical powerhouse, I think that this computer is excellent for school, work, or just an all-around good personal laptop. Just make sure to run it for a while and play around with settings in Windows and in programs, since the first few times the computer may act very slow (also due to the Vista Sidebar, which affects startup performance). I find it much more convenient than a regular laptop.
