Style-conscious urban warriors demand more than just serious computing power from their laptops: they’ve got to be trendy, too. That’s why users are cooing over the Asus W5A.

Serious computing power? Try a 1,73Ghz processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 60 GB hard drive and Windows XP Professional. Trend index? In addition to being sleek and compact (it weighs just 1,6 kg) the W5A allows you to share your perspective with the world using the built-in 1,3 megapixel 180-degree swivel webcam (plus sound, via the built-in microphone). Use LiveFrame software and pretend you’re George Lucas as you capture, manipulate and send images while viewing them on the 30 cm LCD screen with anti-glare technology. You can also connect a variety of ways, including via built-in Bluetooth with a range of up to 100 metres. To save those valuable files permanently, there’s a super-multi DVD writer. And you’ll hardly build up a sweat carrying its mere 1,6 kg bulk. Price: about R18 000. Contact Asustek South Africa on 011-783 5450 or visit
