Excerpt: You may not know it, but electronics manufacturer Asus sells a wide variety of notebook PCs, including everything from thin and light systems to gaming machines and more. Interestingly, their latest effort the U6S, attempts to pair two features it would typically address with entirely separate product lines into a single system – sexiness and business usability. So we’re talking the best of both worlds, right?
Pros: Snazzy looks; decent performance; can log in using your face
Cons: Poor battery life; a bit heavy; unresponsive touchpad buttons
Excerpt: The market for notebook computers has been growing at a much faster rate than desktop PCs for several years now and many expect the "tipping point", where notebooks officially outsell desktops, to occur in 2008. The reason behind this growth is easy to discern: laptops have become more powerful, smaller, lighter and are running longer on batteries than they ever have.

Excerpt: If you're the type who wants to make a statement with your notebook, names like Apple, VAIO, and Alienware may come to mind. But what about ASUS? While you may know them best for their motherboards and video cards, ASUS is a seasoned veteran when it comes to manufacturing notebooks, and they definitely make more than just EeePCs.
Pros: Excellent Performance, Low Heat & Noise, Good LED Display, Cool Leather Palm Rests, Excellent Paint Job, Durable Chassis, Overall Features, Good Value
Cons: Unimpressive Battery Life For An Ultraportable, Touchpad Buttons Were Too Stiff
Summary: While it has a fast CPU and good features, such as built-in 3G connectivity, the U6Sg is let down by poor battery life. This is a major drawback for a unit that's pitched at style-conscious road warriors. If considering this unit, you should either opt for the slower CPU, or the larger, 9-cell battery.
Pros: Fast CPU, built-in 3G antennas and SIM card reader, 250GB hard drive
Excerpt: The new Asus U6S ultra-portable laptop is powered by 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 and it features 4-MB L2 Cache, upto 800 MHz FSB, Mobile Intel 965GM Express Chipset main circuitboard, 2-GB DDR2 SDRAM (2-GB maximum), 160GB SATA 5400 rpm Hard Drive and 24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive.
Excerpt: Lo verde está de moda. El consumo responsable afecta tanto a las empresas como a los trabajadores de a pie y se está convirtiendo en una tendencia que se convierta en algo más que una manera de cubrir el cupo moral en el ámbito tecnológico. Asus tira la primera piedra y no esconde la mano con su portátil “verde”, el Asus U6 Series Bamboo.
Conclusion: Muitas coisas do Asus U6S são inspiradoras. Principalmente o design simples e os materiais de alto padrão como couro real. Existem outras razões além delas, que fazem com que o U6S seja um bom sub portátil. Por exemplo, quarto portos USB 2.0e um porto HDMI, ou as oferecidas formas de comunicação como WLAN standard-n, gigabit Ethernet e Bluetooth. Ele seria mais luxuoso se houvessem portos Firewire e docking também.
