Tech Link (Platform): ASUS A6J Centrino Duo Notebook

Ever since I saw the launch at CES 2006 about the new Intel® processor, I am always drooling at the available products. I'm most specially drooling the Apple* iBook* and iMac* (the "i" really looks cool now that they are using Intel® Processors.

Anyway, this is not to say that other manufacturers aren't up to speed and at par when it comes to developing notebooks and other platforms based on the newer cores. It's just that I haven't been an Apple* guy, in fact, I am Apple* system incompetent. But hey, if you're not drooling or salivating over Apple* offerings (sorry, I know I mention Apple* for far too many times), then there's Asus* to the rescure. Asus* is a long known solid manufacturer in the industry and they sure know how to make a great product. One of their new products is based on the Intel® Core™ Duo processor. If you are prepping out to grab one, go take a stab over at VR-Zone and check their latest review.
The Asus A6J Laptop is one of the first few laptops that will hit the market, featuring Intel's latest Centrino Duo Mobile Technology that comprises Core Duo processor codenamed Yonah, mobile Intel 945 Express chipset codenamed "Calistoga" as well as Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG codenamed "Golan". The A6J also comes with other some power features like a WSXGA+ screen, up to 2GB of DDR-II RAM support, an ATI Radeon x1600 Mobility and a HDD of up to 100GB. Apart from all these excellent components that is implemented on the A6J, Asus did not forget about the other functions that mobile power users might need while on the move, like a built in 4-in-1 card reader, bluetooth, wireless a/b/g LAN. Before we continue giving you guys a further insight of this portable wonder, let's take a look at the basic specifications.
