Recommendations anyone?????

Hi Guys,

Killing time this week in Singapore before crunch time next, over the weekend went to the Comex Computer show here, huge. Am looking for a new Notebook for myslef and my wife. Now SIngaporeans are happy to make a deal with someone buying 2 instead of 1 especially if I am paying cash. I am seriously considering the new Asus W7S with the new Wireless protocol A/B/G and the newest, faster N. protocol As well has read/write DVD and the Intel 7300 chip. Price is about SGD 5750 for the 2 units plus they will give me 2 extra 6 cell batteries and the kicker is it is cheaper than buying in Jakarta by SGD 750 dollars (almost 500 USD for both) and here in Singapore I get a 3 year warranty where in Jakarta the max warranty Asus is willing to give is 2 years warranty.

I am really interested in this new wireless "N" protocol as they are saying it is quicker but normal notebooks I buy Sony or Fujitsu do have this new protocol yet in their notebooks.

So any recommendations or naysayers for Asus and have any other suggestion with computers with this new "N" protocol?

For price comparison:

Asus Laptop - UK Best Deal Sale Laptops Buy Notebook Computer Discount UK - Buy On-Line Laptops and Accessories for Business and Home However, I've never seen them in the shops.

When I bought my laptop, once I had decided on minimum specs I let aesthetics and 'feel' guide me.

I am using a lappy now, but buy a next to the cheapest as their life span is around two years at best.

I have all SONY VAIO's and recommend them highly. I don't think the new "N" 802 is worth a dime more than the "G"s. It is faster, but unless all other elements are in place it will be no different.

Don't believe everything you think
