Asus W5Fe - Windows Sideshow Notebook


Windows Vista Sideshow gives you a second screen to access your data without having to turn on your notebook. But is it actually useful?

Asus W5Fe review


Does Asus's SideShow-toting laptop give a bravura performance or produce a decidedly disappointing spectacle?

SideShow may be no more than a novelty, but the W5fe is a great lightweight laptop with superlative specs

Asus W5Fe


When Microsoft started work on Vista, notebooks were still something of a minority, and anyone who has spent any time with the new OS will know that power management and mobility feel almost an after thought

Elegant design, Makes use of SideShow

Slightly bulkier than normal, Battery life

Overall a strong performer that really does make use of the SideShow gadget from Windows Vista

Asus W5Fe review


Can powerful performance compensate for its other flaws?

Super storage capabilities ; Stunning screen ; Use of Windows SideBar feature

Poor battery life ; Mixed networking ability ; Pricey

While a strong performer in many ways, the price and battery life let this machine down

Asus W5FE 2P025E ultraportable laptop PC


The Asus W5FE 2P025E hits the elusive ultraportable laptop sweet spot.

If battery life is all important to you, Asus' 1kg U1F, which holds out for more than six hours, might be a better match. But the Asus W5FE 2P025E has a much better keyboard, and with its best battery option selected it should last at least 4.5 hours...

Asus W5FE (2P002A)


Windows Vista has opened up a few tasty avenues for PC technology and the Asus W5FE (2P002A) notebook is here to showcase one of them. We took a look ...

SideShow screen, 1.3 megapixel camera, Battery life

Some problems with SideShow screen, Shallow viewing angle

The Asus W5Fe has an interesting design and some cool features. The SideShow is not a hugely useful tool, but it's definitely fun and may become a more worthwhile feature as more gadgets are developed. If you're after a notebook with a good mix of...

Asus W5fe-2P025E


Priced at $2199 (as of April 11, 2007), the W5fe-2P025E hits the elusive ultraportable sweet spot: It's big enough to be full-featured, yet so light that you won't think twice about taking it on the road with you. This 4-pound unit is the first...

Includes Vista Sideshow LCD, Excellent built-in Webcam

Short battery life, No bundled productivity software

This 4-pound portable features a Vista SideShow display.

ASUS W5fe SideShow


The ASUS W5fe SideShow, the first true SideShow laptop, reveals the potential of its small secondary screen; if only they'd come out with more gadgets to use with it.

Long-awaited SideShow display. Two bright screens. Laptop runs cool. Good performance. Big hard drive.

Lack of downloadable gadgets. No video support. Some glitches with the SideShow display. Small battery (three-cell).
