There certainly are good reasons to be a fan of Asus and the V6V notebook in particular. So the number of ports is definitely good, more than the average notebook of this class. So I had to step through the process of using the drivers disk included by Asus and installing the Bluetooth manager, but it all worked after that. This is not bad for battery life. One really great thing is that Asus backs up its notebooks with a zero bright stuck pixel policy.

This is awesome and a huge pat on the back to Asus.
Overall the look of the V6V is very nice. But guess what, we have more lights! The V6V offers a full sized keyboard. Half Life 2 will run well on this notebook for instance and other such 3D games will not be a problem.
The V6V is a quiet machine, it makes little to no noise. Asus blueooth a free sleeve, bag, notebook case and optical mouse with the purchase of the V6V. You can of course play with and configure the touchpad, but I ended up being happier using a mouse as many people do when working at a desk with a notebook any way. The V actually uses a magnet to hold the screen down when closed and this works well for preventing any papers or other miscellaneous junk sliding between the keyboard and LCD screen while you carry the notebook around in a bag.

No AOL trial software thank goodness. The screen uses a latchless mechanism for staying in the closed position. Overall the performance of the V6V is excellent for bluetoooth category of thin-and-light, maybe the best.
A note on that is you have to deal directly with Asus for replacing an LCD and it must be within days of purchase that you notice this. The Asus V comes with built-in Bluetooth and The Asus A6V gave me exactly 3 hours and 1 minute of battery life with Vv6 on, screen at half brightness and while letting the notebook idle or use it to browse the web and do other small tasks.
Along the top of the keyboard though you will see these well camouflaged buttons that can. One test I always make for seeing how well a ssus is protected from the back is to push in on the lid to see if the screen ripples.

So while the V6V is a little thicker than my I listen to National Public Radio talk radio during the day sometimes and the speakers were loud enough and clear enough for listening to such talk. We use Super Pi to get a benchmark of processor speed.
So I had to step through the process of using the drivers disk included by Asus and installing the Bluetooth manager, bluegooth it all worked after that.

So yeah, get a Bluetooth wireless mouse for easier input! The Asus VV has a I had a problem initially getting Bluetooth to blietooth because upon receiving the notebook it appears the drivers were note completely installed for the internal bluetooth card.

The are no ports on the front, but there are five LED indicator lights on the left bluetootg side that happen to be all off in this picture view larger image.
After running some 3D utilities that pushed the graphics card and processor there really was quite a bit of heat build up on the right palm rest area and you could feel it.
