For some reason or another the A6K series of notebooks is listed under business models on Asus’ website, something I can’t quite get my head around. Even more confusing is the fact that the product text talks about “Total gaming power on the go” which I presume refers to the nVidia powered GeForce Go 7300 graphics chipset. This is the latest entry level graphics chipset from nVidia for notebooks and will replace the GeForce Go 6200 with time. What it shares with the 6200 is that it too uses Turbo Cache – this means that it only has a small amount of video memory – in this case 32MB. If the chipset needs more memory it takes it from system memory – this particular chipset can address up to 256MB.


The display is a glossy type 15.4in widescreen model with a native resolution of 1,280 x 800. Not the best money can buy, but adequate. A complaint on the review sample would be that the backlight of the LCD was very uneven, so parts of the screen were darker than others. The backlight can be switched off, which is something of a novel feature, but it could save some battery life if you’re not using the screen for a few minutes.


The hard drive in the review unit was 80GB, although the models on sale in the UK seem to ship with 60GB drives. The optical drive comes from Samsung and writes to DVD+/-R media at 8x DVD+/-RW media at 4x and DVD+R dual layer at 2.4x.
