Asustek's latest desktop replacement gets leaked early

With CES just around the corner, prepare to be bombarded with countless announcements from notebook manufacturers on their latest and greatest mobile offerings. In the case of Asus, one of their new notebooks destined for Las Vegas has made an early appearance over at Notebook Review.

The 8.8 pound, 17" (WSXGA+) desktop-replacement Asus Z84Jp supports Intel's Core 2 Duo processors, features a 512MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 mobile GPU and can accommodate up to 4GB of DDR2 533/667MHz memory. When it comes to I/O ports, the Z84Jp is loaded with four USB 2.0 ports, one external SATA port, an ExpressCard slot, VGA, S-Video and HDMI port. A 7-in-1 media reader is also included as is a 2.0MP webcam and 4 speakers plus a subwoofer.

Although pricing wasn't revealed along with the specs/pictures, the Z84Jp will be released in mid-January complete with Windows XP. Once Windows Vista is released on January 30, it will also be available as an option on the notebook.

It's all relative. I'm sure it sounds great, for a notebook.

I know I'm always looking for better internal speakers on a notebook.

You're quite right, I have a Dell XPS 2 which has a small subwoofer which people have criticised as being too small to be any use. Whilst it can't compare to a proper speaker setup it's far better than several other 17 inch notebooks so I'd rather have the better speakers.
