Asus M60J review

 

Sporting Intel's finest new Core i7 processor, can the turbo-charged Asus M60J laptop sprint past the opposition?

Pricey, but the lightening Core i7 performance is worth it, even if it does have a slight hit on battery life

Core i7 is here in mobile form. Some vendors will be attempting to rush these laptops out as close to the Windows 7 launch as possible. Keep an eye out — looks like the season to upgrade is well and truly upon us.
