The ASUS W1J00Ga can be regarded as an upgraded W1B00Na, so I put the technical characteristics of both notebooks into the following table for a better comparison:
As you can see, the ASUS W1J00Ga comes with a faster central processor for more overall performance – now it is the Intel Pentium M 755 with a frequency of 2.0GHz. The amount of system and disk memory has also been extended, to 1GB and 80GB, respectively. More exactly, the W1J00Ga has two memory slots, one of which of occupied with a 512MB module (the maximum supported amount of memory is 2 gigabytes). This slot is located at the bottom of the case, under a special cover. We couldn’t find the exact position of the second slot. It’s probably below the keyboard, under the metal plate you can see in the snapshot below (on the right):
The W1J00Ga also features a more advanced graphics controller, ATI Radeon Mobility 9700, with 64 megabytes of dedicated graphics memory.
I used an infrared thermometer to measure the temperature of the surfaces of the ASUS W1J00Ga when it was crunching through Multimedia Content Creation Winstone 2004:
- 36°C on the top panel;
- 39°C at the output of the cooling system;
- 42°C on the bottom surface.
