Asus W5f Reviews and Articles:
PC Perspective – April 2006 – As far as an ultra-portable laptop goes, the Asus W5F has everything and then some — an integrated camera, a bonus Blue Tooth mouse, and even digital audio output. – February 2006 – As far as the notebook goes, if you can live with the black slateish and boring looks, this notebook is pretty good…..The W5F offers the latest features, plus more with Intel’s latest technology, so if that’s what you are after, make sure you give ASUS’ W5F a serious consideration.
