One of the first notebooks in its class, the ASUS W3H00V has been on the market for long, yet still stands among the best products available. ASUS managed to find a perfect balance of eye-pleasing design, good functionality and performance and didn’t introduce any big changes since the initial release of this model.
The W3H00V model represents the ASUS style at its highest – the designers did an excellent job. The lid is made of metal, just as it must be in an expensive notebook, and has a rather rare coloring:
Few notebooks can boast a metal lid, though it is practical – it superbly protects the display against physical damage.
Pass-through indicators are placed on the black decorative strip in the notebook’s front:
When the lid is closed, these indicators report the notebook’s status to you.
The front panel is empty as is typical of ASUS notebooks.
The manufacturer only built speakers into it. There’s nothing on the back panel besides the battery.
The battery fastening is somewhat slack, which is rather disappointing in a notebook you pay so much money for. This has no effect on the operation of the computer, yet the overall impression is somewhat spoiled.
