Media-heavy Asus laptop

Writing in an unofficial forum, an Asus reseller claims that the company will soon be releasing a media-focused 17-inch laptop. The Z84Jp will run on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and an Nvidia Go 7600 graphics card, but most importantly, it will come with a number of niceties such as Bluetooth, a two-megapixel webcam, S-video and HDMI outputs, plus a full four speakers and a subwoofer. The only weaknesses in the system may be the DVD-RW drive (no HD), and the weight of the machine, which is a substantial 8.8 pounds. The Z84Jp should launch later in January with Windows XP onboard, but will come loaded with Vista by February. No price has been disclosed.
