The only thing you will find on the left side of the ASUS A6Q00Jc011 is an optical drive with an activity indicator, disc eject button, and an emergency eject hole.
The notebook’s right panel offers the following (from left to right):
- PC Card slot (for one card of type I or II) with an ejector
- 4-in-1 card-reader (supported formats: Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, MultiMediaCard, Secure Digital)
- 4-pin FireWire connector
- Digital S/PDIF output combined with headphones output
- Microphone input
- Audio input
- S-Video connector
- LAN port (RJ-45)
- Modem port (RJ-11)
And these are the components located on the ASUS A6Q00Jc011’s back panel:
- Four USB 2.0 ports
- DVI-D output
- 15-pin D-Sub connector for an external monitor
- Power connector
- Kensington lock
The USB ports are placed rather too densely, which may raise some difficulties. They should have spread them to the other panels, too.
The A6 series differs from other ASUS notebooks in having the battery at the front, under your hands. The battery has a capacity of 4800mAh.
On the notebook’s bottom panel there are: CPU, memory, hard drive and miniPCI compartments, a battery module with two locks (manual and spring-loaded), a holder for your personal card, an emergency shutdown button and a reset hole (in case the Ctrl+Alt+Del combination doesn’t work), stickers with information about the model and the OS serial number, and two stereo speakers.
There are two slots in the memory compartment one of which is occupied with a 512MB module. The second slot is free and is easily accessible, so you can enlarge the amount of memory up to the supported maximum of 2048MB.
