More memory, a larger screen and Windows – it is the best. With the Eee PC 900 Asus puts in the “mobility for a small price” to clear and build compared to the model PC 701 4G. In the present form, we are this new Asus model with standard Microsoft software instead of Linux. Bill Gates and his family will be pleased. The operating system is the potters’ Windows XP Home Edition, “office work can be with” Microsoft Works 9.0 “.

Flash memory with 12 GB

Was jazzed decided the basic equipment in the hardware sector. Inside works with the Intel Celeron M 353 in the clock of 900 megahertz although still a relatively weak processor. The split into a 4-Gigagybte large flash disk containing the operating system and 8 GB flash drive for applications.

Asus EeePC 900

The factory-installed Asus programs show it around 1.2 gigabytes. If you need more space, has two options: he can rely on external solutions like USB or SD card – or buy the Linux version of the same device.

Good display

Chosen larger – and thus significantly better than the 701 4G – is the screen: it is now 8.9 inches at a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The image is thus easy to read, even if the desktop icons and the font are a bit small. Weight of the device, which still has the size of a hardcover book, brings about a kilo on the scales.

Surfing via mobile phone network

To the network, it comes with a cable or wirelessly via radio with Wi-Fi. A UMTS modem is missing as well as a slot for PC-Card-/Expresscard. Surfing via mobile phone network so do not go for now. Amenities include on ports: three USB times, once VGA (for a big external monitor), microphone and headphone jacks.

Mediocre battery

The battery shows an average performance, not outstanding but still acceptable. Just over three hours in normal mode, when you look at a movie, after about two hours and forty minutes it is over. The Eee PC 900 from Asus is a sensible development of concept, even if it proves costly. As single computer, it is suitable for people who do not need unlimited mobility.

As for the unlimited access to the Internet via radio, unfortunately, the business notebook also shows more or less distinct weaknesses.

D9500: Always UMTS mobile

Concerning radio equipment keeps the D9500 does what its name says – it is ultra-mobile Bluetooth, fast WiFi, 1Gb LAN, which has now become a standard of good tools for traveling infantry of the global economy.

Fujitsu Siemens EsprimoD9500

Fujitsu Siemens has an integrated UMTS module that it to a speed of 3.6Mbit / s downstream (i.e. sending) (i.e. when receiving data) and brings 384Kbit upload speed specified by the manufacturer. Is sent with 3 dual band WLAN antennas and 2 UMTS antennas. So it is virtually unlimited reach, whether you are on the green meadow, or not.

Battery Life

Unfortunately, this competitive advantage is greatly limited by the useful life. In normal operation, the device creates office just three and a half hours, you can run it full power, is about an hour after closing. Although you can pack a spare battery, but increased the base weight of 2.5 kilograms plus half a kilo of power supply.

Plus points for the hardware equipment

Pleasing in turn is the basic equipment that guarantees a high computing performance. These include an Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 with a working stroke of 2.4 gigahertz, a two-gigabyte large memory and the 965GM chipset with integrated DirectX 10 graphics core X3100: you catapult the D9500 in the category of fast computers under the notebook.

A 160-gigabyte hard drive, an internal drive, a docking port, and the usual case of a business laptop connection complement the good hardware equipment. Another small drawback it is the web camera for video conferencing on the model is only available Mobile U9200.

Display weaknesses in the outer region

To the parts that could still be optimized includes the 15.4-inch display that lets you easily mastered normal tasks indoors. When it comes out, the picture is not so great. This too is a negative in terms of mobility – after the device is designed for use on the road straight.

A mobile work tool that copes with animated 3D graphics and multimedia applications. Asus presents the V2S, which is a remarkable work tool. Since it is no wonder that it is located in the upper price range.

The almost unlimited mobility guaranteed by an integrated UMTS modem, wherever you are, connect to the Internet, meaning that if one inserts his SIM card at the bottom. There are also a 10/100/1000 LAN card, Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN and Bluetooth.

V2S looks good

The V2S is not one of the slim lightweight, 2.3 kg, but this performance is a remarkable result. 36 mm thick, 245 mm long and 245 mm wide – these are all in all standard dimensions for a device.In addition to a Firewire port, there are two USB ports, an HDMI port for external digital pictures and a SATA port for an external hard drive; it is also a USB port available, the offer is completed by a docking port.

Core 2 Duo processor sets the pace

Inside tinkers an Intel Core2 Duo processor in two-gigahertz clock, together with an Nvidia graphics card that has a memory of 256 megabytes. Two gigabytes of RAM ensure smooth working; the 160-gigabyte hard drive provides tidy storage. Good news for all those who consider their notebooks not only as simple labour and as Office package, but also want to use multimedia features. The Asus V2S you can go quite – but only after work! – Dare one or the other more complex graphical games, even if you have to make some compromises in resolution or one or the other detail. Only poor speakers unfortunately mar this pleasure.

V2S with 14.1-inch display

The V2S has a 14.1-inch display with a resolution of 1440×900 pixels. It is sufficiently bright and high contrast, the non-glare matte finish makes for easy outdoor work. The keyboard is a little cramped, lie about their function keys, such as for regulating the energy consumption, and this is a nice solution.

Additional features: webcam and DVD burner

To come on the hardware side, even a rotary Web camera – which can be used for video conferencing – a DVD burner and for data security, a fingerprint reader, which guarantees exclusive access to his own data, the owner and protects against unauthorized insights – a component which is underestimated by traveling business executives too often.
