ASUS A8Je laptop aims at true mid-range

ASUS A8Je Laptop

A new variant of ASUS' A8 thin-and-light laptop model was introduced on Wednesday that should appeal more to the average user than the gaming-oriented A8Js. The newer A8Je maintains the 14-inch screen and 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo that defined the previous version, but trades the more advanced graphics for a larger hard drive and a likely lower price. Instead of the expensive GeForce Go 7700, the A8Je uses the more modest 128MB Mobility Radeon X1450 to provide just enough performance for Windows Vista and most 3D games. An 80GB hard drive offers substantially more storage as well. ASUS also promises 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 2.0, and a built-in VGA webcam. Though available now, pricing is expected to vary by area and by store as ASUS regularly ships custom-configured models for individual resellers.
