BenQ Joybook S41

BenQ has taken part in the suite of Santa Rosa notebook introductions with a solitary addition to its Joybook line. The S41 is a 14-inch sequel to the 13-inch S31 with a much improved emphasis on video performance. Beyond the change to a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo with the faster 800MHz bus, the system has unusually strong 3D video for the size class with a GeForce 8600M GS that easily outpaces the Intel graphics of its predecessor. The PureVideo decoding also easily relieves the CPU of the burden of decoding HD video and lets the portable play even 1080p videos through an HDMI output. Every system also comes equipped with a 1.3-megapixel webcam.

The availability and pricing of the system varies depending on configuration and its home country. A base system can start with Vista Home Basic as little as 512MB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, and 802.11a/b/g wireless, but certain models can be loaded with as much as 2GB of memory, a 160GB drive, and 802.11n alongside choices of Vista Home Premium or Business. S41 models should start shipping later in May.
