ASUS Laptop UL50 Series UL50Vt-X1 Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 (1.30 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce G210M + Intel GMA 4500MHD 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -switchable graphics
-long battery life (9 hours avg.)
-beautiful design
-light weight for its size, very thin.
-great price, got it for 650 shipped during sale

Cons: -screen, contrast is weird, color is a bit off
-touchpad, no sensitivity adjustment, not very smooth
-no bluetooth
-smudge/fingerprint magnet
-no backlit keyboard
-upgradability (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: This probably one of the best portable 15in laptop on the market. At 1/3 price of a MBP, the performance on everyday task is very comparable. Unless you're into intense 3D gaming or hardcore business applications, the processing and graphics power that comes with this thing is more than adequate.
I am sort of disappointed by the internal design of this laptop, everything is integrated/soldered in which doesnt leave much room for upgrade except for harddrive and RAM.
I had a used Asus UX50v on my hand, which is Asus' first failed attempt at making a 15in ultraportable. But it did have everything the UL50 lacks: backlit keyboard, beautiful screen, and a responsive touchpad. I was planning on swapping out all these parts to upgrade my UL50, however it turns out that the touchpad is glued to the chasis, the backlit keyboard requires a separate power source from the motherboard, and the screen on the UX is edge to edge display so i cant figure out how to take it off....

ASUS R1E-B1 Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GB Memory 160 GB 13.3

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast processor, came with a second battery, a laser bluetooth mouse, and two carrying bags. Sturdy construction, and awesome price.
Swapable module bay, quite handy.

Cons: the first battery last almost 3 hours, and the second one 2 hours. but when both are used, the battery life indicator only says about 3 and half hours. don't know if it's vista or asus' fault.
screen is kinda grainy, and fade easily outdoors.

Other Thoughts: For the price, it's a great tablet, and after you uninstall all the crapware, it actually runs pretty fast under vista. But now that the R1E-D1 is out, which is the same price but with a 64-bit vista and one more gig of ram, you're probably better off buying that one.
The handwriting recognition is pretty good, it even recognizes my sloppy chinese handwritings.

SanDisk Sansa e200 1.8

4 out of 5 eggs You get what you pay for 08/06/2008

This review is from: SanDisk Sansa e200 1.8" Black 8GB MP3 Player Sansa e280

Pros: Very Cheap, lots of storage space. Has video and FM tuner, decent sound quality and very good battery life.

Cons: the charging with USB connector thing is kinda annoying. Can't create playlist with the player, you have to sync it with windows media player. Gets incredibly slow when scrolling through a long playlist (>100 songs). Doesn't support asian languages even though it supports 10 other random eastern european languages.

Other Thoughts: There is a reason this thing is less than half the price of an ipod. It's about half as good as an ipod, but I'd rather use this than dealing with the annoyance of iTunes.
There's known problems about the audio jack, mine went dead in about a month, had that replaced, no problem since then.
