Over the past few years, we have experienced a fundamental shift in the way we use at personal computers. No longer is it enough to have access to information and communication, we want it NOW and in our hands. Our thirst for information has lit a fire in the mobile computer industry and today, for better or worse, we're bombarded with countless ads, products, and opinions on the latest laptop.
What makes our understanding of all this worse are the constant innovations and sometimes competing technologies vying for your hard-earned money. Does Blu-ray or HD-DVD make sense?

In our review of the Asus W5F laptop posted yesterday, I made a comment that the laptop market is hot. Maybe it's gotten too hot because Asus is launching a 11" Core Duo laptop that has a leather covering! The leather comes in two different colours: dark chocolate, and camel. There are reports of a hot-pink version as well but Asus has not officially mentioned it even though their product images show a pink version.
But knowing how I treat my own laptop, the last thing I need to worry about is the leather staining from my coffee or water. Plastic wipes easily, leather does not.
Introduction and Specs
Asus gives the T2300 Core-Duo CPU some style in a small package. The W5F is a ultra-portable laptop that is sure to please those looking to be mobile and not compromise on looks or performance.
