Conclusion

The Intel Core Solo has made a successful debut in our tests. If you don’t run multi-threaded applications, a portable computer with this last-generation single-core processor from Intel may suit you fine. The lack of dual-core capabilities is compensated by the lower price and the lower power consumption of the single-core CPU. It is also a rather big step forward over the Intel Pentium M series in terms of performance as well as battery life.

The ASUS A6Q00Jc011 notebook leaves a nice impression, having quite appealing price/quality and price/capabilities ratios. It can last longer on its battery and offers more performance than notebooks based on the older mobile platform, and thus has a chance to be as successful on the market as it has been in our tests.

Highs:

  • Classic exterior design
  • Good performance
  • Rich accessories
  • ASUS Color Shine technology
  • Many interfaces, ports and connectors
  • Affordable price
  • Long battery life

Lows:

  • Reflections on the display
  • Inconvenient placement of the USB ports
  • Two locks on the display
  • Lack of Bluetooth interface
