ASUS A8Jr With X2300

ASUS on Monday unveiled both a new notebook and graphics technology with the A8Jr. An update to the company's 14-inch widescreen portable, the Taiwan-based company centers around new, previously unannounced 128MB Mobility Radeon X2300 graphics. Though details remain vague, the new ATI video chipset is a likely replacement for the low-end X1300 that ASUS says offers much more performance per watt, suiting it to Windows Vista's Aero Glass interface as well as decoding HD video or playing games.

As with much of the company's line, the A8Jr is available in many different configurations. A base model begins with a 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 80GB hard drive, DVD/CD-RW combo drive, and support for Bluetooth 2.0 as well as 802.11a/b/g wireless; a fully-loaded system is powered by a 2.33GHz Core 2 Duo, 160GB of storage, and a DVD rewriter. ASUS is shipping the A8Jr soon using Windows XP with prices varying by region, but expects to preload the system with Windows Vista soon.
