Asus lappy gets super 3G happy

So you’re out in the city, briefcase under one arm, umbrella doubling as a cane. You’re dressed to impress – even Eubank would collapse in sheer admiration. But what’s this? You desperately need to get online to check the price of lentils and you’ve inadvertently wandered out of Wi-Fi reception. What is a chap to do?Calm down sir, you brought your new Asus V2 with you didn’t you? After pressing your digit to the fingerprint reader that tasty slab of laptop meat will grant access to an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 1.3MP webcam for on-the-go business video-conferencing, and best of all, HSDPA connectivity built-in.That’s right, the smoothest, sleekest and dare we say it, sexiest, of the mobile internet connections is on-board the V2, offering download speeds approximately ten times faster than old school, regular 3G.Elsewhere, it’s a pretty standard specs sheet: you’ll get regular Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth which we’ve come to expect from any self-respecting notebook, a 14in WXGA+ screen and a maximum 160GB hard drive. But hey, anything that might shut Eubank up for 5 minutes is a winner in our book.
