a nice way

Asus' ultrathin U41JF is designed to be both powerful and portable VGP-BPS9/S , with a chassis that is around 1 inch thick and a Nvidia graphics card. Unfortunately, the entire notebook looks cheap,VGP-BPS9A/S despite obvious attempts to make it look otherwise. This notebook has all the right parts, from the brushed-aluminum cover VGP-BPS9A/S to the Chiclet-style keyboard and fancy graphics card (though no Sandy Bridge processor or Blu-ray drive),VGP-BPS9/B but it's still very obviously a budget machine.


Our review model, priced at $830,VGP-BPS9A/B came loaded with a 2.53GHz Intel Core i3 380M processor, 4GB of RAM (upgradable to 8GB), and an Nvidia GeForce GT 425M graphics card. It also carried a DVD-RW drive,VGP-BPS9 a built-in 0.3-megapixel Webcam, and a 500GB hard drive. It ran a 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home VGP-BPS13 Premium and had a 14.1-inch screen.


The U41JF's attractive, brushed-aluminum silver cover is simple,VGP-BPS13/Q with a small mirrored logo in the center. The rest of the chassis, save for the interior deck area (which features the same brushed-aluminum as the cover), is black and subtly textured.VGP-BPS13/S Asus has sacrificed some durability in favor of portability: the laptop doesn't feel sturdy at all,VGP-BPS13A/B and the lid/display bends easily under very light pressure.


Though Asus touts the U41JF as a superthin, superlight ultraportable,VGP-BPS13A/S only the laptop's screen seems impressively thin. The rest of the laptop is average for VGP-BPS13AS an ultraportable model, weighing in at about 4.7 pounds and measuring about 1 inch thick. At least Asus didn't skimp on battery life--our tests eked out almost 7 hours of battery life with the included VGP-BPS13B/S six-cell battery. The U41JF provides three USB 2.0 ports, a VGA-out, an HDMI-out, an ethernet jack,vgp-bps13S microphone and headphone jacks, and a multi-in-one card reader.


I found the U41JF's Chiclet-style keyboard quiet and comfortable to type on. The matte-black keys are set against a shiny,vgp-bps2a smooth black background, and are spaced evenly apart. The keyboard doesn't feel cheap,vgp-bps2b but it visibly bent in the middle as I typed on it--not a great sign, to say the least. The trackpad is responsive and features a silver mirrored rocker bar instead of individual mouse buttons.vgp-bps2c Both the trackpad and the rocker bar are big and comfortable to use,VGP-BPS8A and neither looks particularly cheap.


The 14.1-inch glossy screen has a native resolution of 1366 by notebook akku 768 pixels. It combats glare reasonably well, and displayed content is easy to view, even in bright (though not direct) sunlight. Horizontal and vertical viewing angles are dismal, however:Notebook Akku This is not a laptop for side-by-side movie viewing. The Altec Lansing speakers, which are located along the bottom front of the chassis, are loud enough to fill a medium-size room, but they sound very tinny at the Acer Notebook Akku highest volumes.


The U41JF earned a WorldBench 6 score of 107--pretty good for Notebook Akku an all-purpose laptop (negligibly better than the 106 managed by our top-scoring laptop in the category, the HP Envy 14, but lower than the 126 posted by our current second-place laptop in the category,Apple Notebook Akku the Asus N53SV). The U41JF also delivered fairly good video playback and performed admirably in games for a laptop of its class. It is perfectly suitable for streaming HD video and playing graphics-intensive asus Notebook Akku


games.


The biggest problem with the Asus U41JF is its overall look.lenovo Notebook Akku


Though Asus obviously sought to emulate the Macbook Pro with its brushed-aluminum casing,toshiba Notebook Akku


Chiclet-style keyboard, and sleek(ish) design, the U41JF just ends up looking really cheap. Factor in the laptop's generally cheap feel, and you have a basis for looking elsewhere.One nicer-looking, more durable feeling laptop with a similar price is the Gateway ID49C13u ($840), which received a WorldBench 6 score (106) and performed similarly well in Sony Notebook Akku our graphics tests.

Good-looking does not always mean good-performing. VGP-BPS8B Though the Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB ($679.98 list, at Staples) is an attractive 14-inch laptop, it has trouble keeping pace with competing models from other manufacturers.VGP-BPS8 The laptop's roomy hard drive and solid user experience help compensate for its VGP-BPL9 speed limitations, but a bit more power would go a lot further to proving that the Inspiron 14R-1181MRB is more than just a pretty face.


DesignVGP-BPS10




Sedate but elegant in appearance, the VGP-BPS21 1.2-by-13.5-by-9.69-inch (HWD) 14R-1181MRB is designed to look like it's built from bushed metal: black on its lid (where the only other feature is a shiny Dell logo),VGP-BPS21A and aluminum surrounding the keyboard inside. The keys are not in the now-trendy Chiclet configuration,VGP-BPS21A/B but rather of the traditional, square and flat variety, and they provide a decently firm typing experience. The keys are black in color, which provides a Akku ProBook 4410s nice visual contrast to the dark gray touch pad (which supports multitouch gestures) and the brushed-aluminum buttons that adorn it.




Like just about every other laptop with a 14-inch widescreen display,Akku ProBook the native resolution on the 14R-1181MRB is 1,366 by 768. The display is connected to the body using Dell's new Akku ProBook 4415s hinge-forward design, which creates a small "lip" at the back of the body. Weighing about 4.9 pounds,Akku ProBook 4416s the 14R-1181MRB is heavier than other laptops of this class, but hardly too much so to carry.


FeaturesAkku ProBook 4510s




The 14R-1181MRB comes with a Akku ProBook 4515s dual-core 2.53-GHz Intel Core i3-M380 processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory (though it can hold as much as 8GB), and a roomy 500GB, 5,400-rpm hard drive. The ports on the 14R-1181MRB are Akku ProBook 4520s sensibly laid out. On the back you'll find you'll find the power jack, the external VGA monitor connection, and a single USB 2.0 port. The left edge of the body is where you'll locate the Ethernet and HDMI ports, 7-in-1 card reader,Akku ProBook 4710s and a combo USB 2.0–eSATA jack for hooking up an external hard drive or other kinds of devices. On the right edge, you'll find one more USB 2.0 port,Akku ProBook 4720s in addition to headphone and microphone jacks and a DVD burner. A 1.3-megapixel webcam located in Akku ProBook 4210s the typical position, in the center of the top bezel. The 14R-1181MRB comes with 802.11n Wi-Fi and built-in Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth.


The laptop's operating system is the Akku dell Latitude D820 64-bit version of Windows Home Premium, and it comes loaded with trials of McAfee Security Center and Microsoft Office 2010, in addition to Roxio Burn for simplifying the process of burning data to blank optical discs.


Customers who buy this system from Staples can avail themselves Akku dell Latitude D830 of several services the retailer offers. This includes setting the new system up, data transfer from Akku dell Latitude D620 your old PC to your new one, software installation, and tech support and protection that range in price from $14.99 to $169.99 Akku dell Latitude D630.


Performance




Though the 14R-1181MRB will suffice for everyday tasks like Web browsing, word processing, and video watching, we found it lacking in almost all other performance areas. Of six comparable laptops we've recently looked at, the 14R-1181MRB came in dead last in all our tests. In the PCMark Vantage full-system test, it scored 5,374, lower than the notebook akku Editors' Choice Asus U41JF-A1 ($857 street, 4.5 stars) (5,560). In Handbrake, the 14R-1181MRB needed 2 minutes 59 seconds to transcode a video clip, more than the previous slowest finisher, the Samsung QX410-J01 ($829.99 street, 4 stars) (2 minutes 54 seconds). The 14R-1181MRB scored 2.1 points in the Cinebench R11.5 rendering test, again lower than the Samsung QX410-J01. In Photoshop CS5, when we tasked the laptop with Notebook Akku processing a large image using 12 different filters and effects, it needed 5 minutes 36 seconds−a full ten Apple Notebook Akku seconds longer than the HP Pavilion dm24-1253cl (3.5 stars, $799 list).


Nor is the 14R-1181MRB well suited for 3D gaming, due in no small part to its use of integrated Intel HD Graphics. It scored only 1,894 in our 3DMark06 test running at 1,024 by 768; the next-lowest finisher, the HP dm4-1253cl, earned 2,043. (At its native resolution, the system hardly did better−1,608, compared with the HP dm4-1253cl's 1,823.) We also weren't able to get either our Lost Planet 2 or Crysis benchmark tests to run on the laptop. Casual games, like those from PopCap, should be fine,asus Notebook Akku but anything more demanding will not be the 14R-1181MRB's forte.


In terms of battery life, the 14R-1181MRB leaves something to be desired. Though the laptop's 6-cell battery is touted as having up to 5 hours 15 minutes of battery life, we were only able to eke out 3 hours 45 minutes in our MobileMark 2007 battery test. The Sony Notebook Akku Satellite E205-S1980 (3.5 stars) managed 5:29, and the Asus U41JF-A1 finished in 8:19.


Stylish though the Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB may be, it has a lot of trouble living up to its appearance. It's outclassed by every other similarly priced laptop we've looked recently at in terms of performance, right on down from the Editors' Choice Asus U41JF-A1. Laptops like the Akku U41JF-A1 and the Samsung QX410-J01 have slightly higher prices, respectively, but unless your needs really don't go beyond the basics, they will give you a lot more capabilities for your coin.

Light, portable,Akku Vostro 1720 cheap−these are the defining characteristics of a netbook. These pint-sized devices offer basic Internet
access and computing capability in a portable package, with a smaller price tag Akku Studio 1535 than a standard laptop. The HP Mini 210-2000
($599 direct) checks off all of the required boxes,Akku Vostro 1310 but won't blow you away in any given category considering its parts.
What it will do is go the distance in terms of Akku Vostro 1320 battery life.


Design Akku Vostro 1510


Weighing in at just under 3 pounds, Sony VGP-BPS13A/Q the Mini 210-2000 offers great portability for the mobile user that will do anything
to lighten their load, and is only a few ounces heavier than the 2.5-pound Acer Aspire One AOD255-1203 Sony VGP-BPS9/S ($329.99 street, 4

and viewing YouTube clips. The keyboard is nearly full sized, and offers a Sony VGP-BPS13/S comfortable typing experience. It has chiclet-style keys, which helps when trying to differentiate one Sony VGP-BPS13A/B key from another by feel.


The mouse uses a clickpad, which combines the trackpad Sony VGP-BPS13A/S and mouse buttons into one smooth surface. It's multitouch-capable, and gesture controls like pinch and zoom or two-finger scrolling are ideal when using Sony VGP-BPS13AS a small screen where content may be resized or cut off. The touchpad itself is a tad undersized, Sony VGP-BPS13B/S measuring only 1.75 by 3.6 inches, but it offers more mousing real estate than the Acer Aspire One AOD255-1203 ($329.99 street, 4 stars) and Dell Sony vgp-bps13S Inspiron Mini 10 ($425 direct, 3.5 stars).  


Features Sony vgp-bps2a

A desktop link to eBay, and a New York Times reader program Sony VGP-BPL9 further clutter the desktop. Many users will want to deactivate these trial programs when they first power up the Sony VGP-BPS10 netbook.


And speaking of starting up the machine, when powered on, Sony VGP-BPS21 instead of booting directly to Windows, the Mini 210-2000 instead pulls up a Splashtop, which is a lightweight operating system that lets you access the Web, Sony VGP-BPS21A enjoy your media, and play simple games right away. In addition to shortening the wait to get online, it also lets you access your favorite media and play simple games,Sony VGP-BPS21A/B all without entering Windows. Akku HP ProBook 4410s When you do want to get into the Windows OS, just one click will take you there.


Performance Akku HP ProBook 4411s




The HP Mini 210-2000 is Akku HP ProBook 4415s outfitted with an Intel Atom N455 processor, a single-core processor with 1GB of RAM and integrated Intel graphics. While these components are sufficient for basic Akku HP ProBook 4416s Web browsing and document editing, something as simple as browsing with multiple tabs open can cause noticeably Akku HP ProBook 4510s slow performance. For those who are willing to spend a little more for a power boost, you can configure Akku HP ProBook 4515s this netbook with a dual-core Atom N550, and RAM can be expanded to 2GB.


When run through SYSMark 2007, Akku HP ProBook 4520s the Mini 210-2000 produced average results. An overall score of 37 puts it right alongside the Editors' Choice Samsung NF310-A01 ($399.99 street, 4.5 stars)Akku HP ProBook 4710s and Toshiba mini NB305-N410 ($359.99 list, 4.5 stars), both of which scored 38 points. However, it couldn't match the 53 Akku HP ProBook 4720s points scored by the Asus EeePC 1215N ($500 street, 4 stars).


Where the HP Mini 210-2000 stands Akku HP ProBook 4210s out is battery life: In MobileMark 2007, the 6-cell 66Wh battery lasted a whopping 9 hours 50 minutes. This marathon time beat out even most other long-lived netbooks, like the Akku HP ProBook 4310s 8:55 of the MSI Wind U160-007US ($380 street, 3 stars) and 8:59 of the Akku Studio 1735 Toshiba mini NB305-N410.


All things considered, the HP Mini 210-2000 Akku Studio 1737 is a light netbook that can be used to browse the Web and edit documents for hours and hours on end. If more computing power is a necessity, you might prefer the Editors' Choice Akku Vostro 1510 Samsung NF310-A01 or an ultraportable, such as our Editors' Choice, the Akku Vostro 1310 Toshiba Portege R705-P35 ($899.99 list, 4 stars). For students who don't need a lot of processing power or graphics capability, the backpack-friendly size and budget-friendly price Akku Vostro 1710 tag makes the HP Mini 210-2000 worth looking at.
