ASUS fits a relatively large 15.4-inch widescreen display and an NEC ND-6650A DVD burner into a trim 362 x 268 x 28.5 to 39mm frame that weighs 6.39-pounds. The S96j can handle any application, thanks to its peppy Intel Core Duo T2400 (1.83-GHz) processor supported by 1GB of Corsair DDR2 667 RAM. Plus, it comes with a 80GB Hitachi SATA HDD and ATI Mobility X1600 graphics. Here’s what Philip Cody had to say:
Very well designed. Solid build. Exceptional ergonomics. Fantastic cooling and very quiet. Easy to assemble. Very good gaming performance. SATA hard drive support. Very likely can upgrade to Core 2 Duo later. Decent headphone jack output. Great value.
