*drool* I really really love the leather bound notebooks. And this one is small AND comes with a DVD drive!! I think this might just have to be my next laptop.

The best looking leather bound notebook was actually a Lenovo, which was the basic lousy thinkpad design, but had a thick leather binding exactly like a book. It even had a spine, and the leather overhung the edges all around, so you couldn't tell it was a laptop at all until it was opened.

that is a nice looking notebook... but it would be even BETTER if they could throw in a 8800M gpu in there :)

Of course any laptop would be even better with an 8800 in it!!! :P

My lappy's got an 8600GS in it and under Vista gaming performance quite frankly sucks IMO... luckily I could care less about gaming on it.

I found the laptop on Newegg:

Its not bad for a little 11-incher... looks really easy to carry around and I think looks pretty sleek...leather is always a good thing Wink

would you really want to play crysis on a 11 inch screen 

willardcw4 6 years ago

yes... yes i would... i want to strain my eyes to the point where x-ray vision develops :)

but it would be cool to bust out this tiny wanna-be laptop and just start playing cod4 or something... its a real chick-getter.. trust me ;)

 You know I contemplated getting agaming laptop before college, but you know what? Thats a desktop's job, and trying to make a hybrid just makes something that fails at both.

 I have seen their leather notebooks several tiems before, and the look exeptionally classy. Plus they make them in hot pink, so it makes it a perfect valentines day present !

If I had that type of budget for Valentines Day I might have had a better time.

Asus seems awfully proud of this little critter, considering its price.

Also, willardcw4 that was a great comment about squinting until you had X-Ray vision. It actually made me laugh, which has been rare lately. Thanks.
