Asus M70 review


Asus' new 17in laptop runs Linux and is very affordable. Is it the EeePC of giant notebooks?

You won’t want to carry it around much, but go for the higher res screen and this is an excellent desktop replacement

Asus M70SA review


This desktop replacement looks fantastic and works really well too

1TB storage ; Impressive audio ; Bright screen ; Easy to use

Heavy ; Steep price

A powerful, user friendly desktop replacement with much more to offer than it's impressive amount of storage

Asus M70Sa review


Asus's M70Sa is the most expensive laptop here but it's also by far the most feature-laden.

ASUS M70V – Shining multimedia laptop


Truly elegant ASUS multimedia laptop. Handsome shiny black top with the classic ASUS logo slightly raised. This laptop has a large display with built-in rotatable webcam. Several USB ports on both sides, HDMI port, VGA port, FireWire and a dual layer...

Very fast ; Elegant design ; Many media-functions

Easy to see grime and greasy fingers ; No particular performance in the subwoofer

This laptop can easily replace the desktop PC, even for the gamer who’d probably push his computer a little more than the standard user. The ASUS M70V greatly outperforms the Toshiba P300 it was tested against. With the two games I tested, it seems...

Asus M70VM-7T031C


Asus takes the Centrino 2 platform and aims big. Very big. Matthew Sparkes puts the M70 on the scales in this preview.

Plenty of space, with 1TB of internal storage!

1TB storage, HDMI, high-definition screen, e-SATA, video-in

Recording software isn't provided for the video-in ports, has a small remote

There's a lot to this notebook, and while it works great for the most part, it could still use a little refinement, especially with regards to its video input ports. Overall though, it's a great media centre notebook and it does have tremendous storage...

The ASUS M70Sa-X2 has everything you can possibly imagine on a laptop. So what's the downside?

A terabyte's worth of storage. 4GB of memory. 1080p screen. Fast processor. Every A/V feature imaginable. Blu-ray drive included. 1GB of video memory.

It's heavy.

ASUS M70 review


The Asus M70 is the most fully loaded laptop we've seen in a long while. Aside from its massive terabyte of hard-drive space (enough to hold a few hundred movies or a few hundred thousand MP3s), the multimedia system incorporates a Blu-ray drive and a...

Upscale, CE-like design; full HD-resolution screen with handy automatic display settings; Blu-ray drive and 1TB of storage; multimode touch pad; full complement of ports and connections; decent battery life.

Large and heavy; 32-bit OS leaves 1GB of RAM sitting dormant; midrange GPU does not offer top-notch gaming performance; doesn't ship with a Media Center remote.

You can find Blu-ray-equipped desktop replacements for less, but no other media laptop currently offers as many features for the price as the Asus M70.

Review: Asus M70 1TB


We can't think of too many legitimate scenarios where we'd need to carry a full terabyte of data with us on a laptop, but that...

Surprisingly good battery life (over 1 hour, 40 minutes) for a 17-inch rig. Dual hard drives allows for mirroring (and perfect, instant backups). Precise loud speakers, including bottom-mounted subwoofer

Very buggy even under minimal load. Extremely dim LCD, even at max brightness. Awkward case design requires punching a difficult-to-reach button to open the lid
