Summary: At first glance, the Asus N10J seems like a make-over of the Asus Eee PC 1000H 80G XP, albeit with some superior components and design. It strays very close to ultraportable notebook territory, bearing a price that's inexpensive for an ultraportable; but steep for a mini-notebook.
Asus N10 (Intel Atom N270 Processor 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM)
12 December 2008
Summary: It may look like your standard netbook, but the Asus N10 is unique because underneath it features discrete, switchable graphics. You'll pay a bit more for the privilege, but the end result works for moderate gaming-on-the-go, as long as you don't mind dialling down your game settings.
Pros: Switchable dedicated/integrated graphics chips, Decent keyboard, Excellent battery life, especially with GeForce graphics turned off, HDMI port and ExpressCard slot are useful bonuses
Cons: Low screen resolution won't appeal to all gamers, Underpowered Intel Atom CPU is far from ideal for graphics-heavy applications, and cripples gaming performance, High price
