Even with years of past models to catch up on, ASUS is soldiering along attempting to produce a wider variety of notebooks than motherboards.  The latest review of one of the many ASUS mobility products comes from InsideHW, a member of the Versatile Performance series, the F50Sv.  It is a 16" model with a 1366x768 LCD, hiding an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 on a SiS 671DX+968
chipset with an NVIDIA GeForce GT 210M
to power the graphics.   While that mix of components will not win it any pri

These laptops embody the opposite side of the mobile scale to netbooks.  They are heavy, they are hot and they will eat a battery in under an hour; they are the Core i7 based Clarksfield series.  The Core i7 820QM and 720QM
will be showing up in notebooks soon and not just from extreme boutique builders like Falcon Northwest and Alienware, one is even speced at the $1400 mark.  Once Arrandale hits we might see them in a more portable form, but until then drop by ExtremeTech for a look at some Cl

AMD's new mobile platforms target mainstream and ultraportable users but never quite cross the line into netbook territory.  The core of these platforms is the 65nm AMD Turion Neo X2 but the real star is the chipset.  Netbook users are suffering with Intel's IGP as it struggles with HD video; whereas AMD's new RS780M is based on the DX10 compliant 780G chipset whose performance we are already familiar withCheck out the new face of AMD mobility in Josh's preview.

SPCR is finding the netbook market a little crowded, but one recent release from ASUS caught their eye; the Eee PC Seashell 1005HA.  Boasts of the longest untethered run time raised their eyebrows and suspicions, so off they went to pick one up.  The model they tested house an Atom N280 @ 1.66Ghz along with 1GB of DDR2 and the usual GMA 900
IGP.  In the end,

The new PROLiNK netbook has a very happy name, the Glee TA-009.  An Atom N270 is paired with the Intel 945GSE
chipset and 1GB of DDR2 in a 10.1" form.  When VR-Zone cranked up Battery Eater, the tiny 3-cell LiON battery managed 1hr 41min 37sec
of running time, which is not too bad for the size of the battery.  See what you think of it after reading the whole review.

For some reason there exists a laptop manufacturer that goes by the name of Suzuki and they have a new product out called the Kuiper 1562 WKS.  It is a 15.6" display with a native 1366 x 768 display a C2 Duo T6400 and 4GB DDR2 667MHz with a NVIDIA GeForce G 105M
providing the graphics power.  Perhaps the most noticeable thing on this laptop is the pre-installed software; you will find a Vista 64-bit Home Basic installation and software for the embedded camera ...
