Asus N10


$600.00 Released October, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:More powerful NV 9300GS graphics card than any previous EEE model , switchable to onboard for power saving. HDMI port. Fingerprint scanner a nice touch.

The Cons:Heavier than standard netbooks. Expensive for a netbook. Enhanced resolution is still a little small considering the escalating price.

 The N10 is a higher quality netbook from Asus, for those who desire more than what the current EEE line has to offer.  The N10 has a 10.2" screen with a larger vertical resolution than the current 9-10" offerings (1024 x 768px vs 1024 x 600px) , a more luxurious enclosure, higher quality speakers, a fingerprint scanner, and an HDMI out.

Product Shot 2 Launched to relatively little fanfare, there are currently 3 models of the N10 - ranging from $600 to $800. The amount of RAM, drive space and graphics are used to distinguish these different models. Currently the two higher priced versions utilize both onboard Intel GMA950 graphics as well as an Nvidia 9300M GS (with 256MB of VRAM) - switchable for battery savings.

Yale: #asus_n10 They're far too small for any type of optical drive. Besides - optical media is dead. Oct 17, 08
