For most people who already have a wireless router, this will be a novelty item because of its size but not necessarily something that will be particularly useful. The Sony SZ seemed underpowered in terms of graphics capabilities compared to the other candidates and the W3J seemed too expensive and lacked a webcam. The black keyboard contrasts nicely with the silver case and the Asus logo on the lid of the laptop is understated but still impressive. As mentioned before, Bluetooth is NOT included although there is an infrared port. However, if you push the border of the screen while facing it, you will see some localized rippling. The A8Js feels extremely sturdy and the difference when compared with my Compaq is like the difference between an S-Class Mercedes Benz and a Daewoo although I read that Daewoo is making a turnaround — albeit not in the United States.

I played Counter-strike 1. Personally, I abhor smaller mice and this fits into that category. This bonus from the MilestonePC Group Buy program was a nice perk especially since I was in need of a wireless router.

I also installed A8m III and there were no problems with that either. However, I could not have been more surprised with the quality of the A8Js — the quality of the plastic that is used is phenomenal.
Now heat and noise, or lack thereof, are pretty important to me. I tried gaming for a while but all I got out of the A8Js was a low whir — definitely nothing that would turn heads in a fairly quiet lecture hall.
It feels almost metal-like and there is certainly no flex in the area surrounding the keyboard. Finally, the last button launches some sort of Asus media center.
Not too shabby, I thought it w8j be worse so I was pleasantly surprised. Of course my reference point is my work computer and my Compaq laptop, but still, the processor is truly a work of advanced science by Intel.
The A8Js has a variety of ports. This laptop is exactly what I was looking for and it should last me on through law school. Skype comes pre-installed as does Norton Antivirus but the majority of the other programs are Asus utilities which actually are pretty useful.
Battery life ranges from around 2 hours 15 minutes at full brightness and while downloading large files over wireless. Visit our network of sites: The A8Js is blessedly silent with only some hard drive access noises which I find sort of reassuring anyway.
My old Compaq Presario laptop sounded like a jet, and that was just while typing. As mentioned before, Bluetooth is NOT included although there is an infrared port.

I needed something that was powerful yet also portable enough for law school in a year. Asus A8Js left asjs view view large image.
With battery saving mode on, that number changes to around 2 hours 40 minutes. This was in addition to the Asus carrying case and optical scroll-wheel mouse that is included standard. Hats off to them. Their Group Buy program just sweetened the deal in an altogether very enjoyable buying experience.

The A8Js feels extremely sturdy and the difference when compared with my Compaq is like the difference between an S-Class Mercedes Benz and a Daewoo although I read that Daewoo is making a turnaround — albeit not in the United States. I had read on the forums of NotebookReview. I think the benefit derived from this purchase would have outweighed the cost even if I had paid full price. The A8Js comes with Windows XP Professional and Asus is a part of the Vista Express Upgrade program so if you buy it during the promotional period, you should have a free or saus least subsidized upgrade to the new Windows Xo.
I have the 2GHz Core 2 Duo and it is blazing fast. Specifically, when I had a video chat session going with my girlfriend and a browser running at the same time the computer would slow to a crawl and almost beg px be put out of its misery.
The azus has no flex and the buttons on the laptop all seem to make sense in terms of placement. Since the A8Js has so much power in such a small package, I worried that a tradeoff for all that power would be large amounts of noise and heat making using it on my lap a risky affair.
