Being the lifestyle laptop, the S6 takes the elegance. It has the generous leather covering – including one on the outer lid.
The Asus S6 is also available in several other leather options. The leather offers the good tactile feel for the notebook. Even, it gives the notebook a complete different look: at the first sight, it looks like an expensive diary or folder. But there is an Asus badge sealed on it, sealed over the chrome strip – neat touch ? which begs that it is not a diary. The notebook is tiny and has the external ports organized well.
The Asus S6 comes bundled along with the Windows Vista Business. The CoreDuo processor of the notebook handles most activities peacefully. 1 GB of RAM assists in its smooth performance. The notebook can easily perform the everyday activities of the working individual – be it the entertainment or the work. But there is one exception ? the gaming. The laptop is not at all designed for gaming. It could decently run only the previous versions of the various strategy games.
The Asus S6 contains a battery pack of 6 cells. The specifications state the life of the battery of about 4.5 hours. But in practice, under the standard usage, this laptop comfortably lasts more than 3 hours. The Asus S6 comes bundled along with an Asus S6 notebook, charger, cable tie, Composite video cable, Modem cable, laptop bag, LCD cleaning material, an optical USB mouse, a manual and CDs.
