My manager had purchased this unit yesterday for his graphic designing lesson and I am the one who install the software. Unboxing this brand new Asus K42DR-VX078 Tri-Core ATI notebook inspired me to have this unit someday… I really love ASUS!

This unit has a 2GB of RAM (upgradable up to 8GB) and a dedicated 1 GB  ATI Radeon Video RAM that plays greatly with HD graphics in 14.1” LED back-lighted screen-an energy saving display.

I like the stylish edges…slick and sexy. A choco-like in color with artistic texture, the back panel has no port, the Multi-touch touchpad and the keyboard was placed well-easy and relaxing to type where your wrist can lean on extra space beside the touchpad.-this due to Palm Proof Tech of ASUS.
