Budget laptop with a lot of features
Subject: Mobile | April 29, 2008 - 02:40 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
ASUS has put a lot of extras into their M51S laptop, without pricing it beyond the value market. With four USB ports, support for both DVI/VGA and TV-Out, webcam and a lot more, keeping the price of this 15" notebook at the $1000 is no easy task. The laptop is billed as being mostly a multi-media machine, but TECHGAGE fired up Crysis at 1280x800 and it was playable, as were other newer titles. All that power does have a price; you won't see the battery make it to the 2 hour mark, even with light usage.
"Have a $1,000 budget for a new notebook? Look no further than the ASUS M51S. Touted as a multi-media notebook, it
offers a 15.4" screen, 250GB HD and 3GB of RAM. Included also are 4 USB ports, DVI and VGA outputs, full numpad,
fingerprint reader, a face-detection logon system and more."
