The VX1 Golded Edition goes on sale in Japan tomorrow, in a limited run of just 200 machines. At this stage it’s unclear whether the notebook will be offered elsewhere in the world. If so, will each territory get 200 units, or is that the global total? Asus Japan didn’t say. Either way, each laptop has a metal plate embossed on the back with a unique machine number.
The ASUS Z96j is powered by a 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo T2500 processor, 1GB of OCZ DDR2-667 RAM, 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon x1600 graphics, 100GB SATA HDD, built-in webcam, 8x DVD+RW drive, and a vibrant 15.4 inch SXGA display. NotebookReview has a review of this notebook.
To my knowledge, there is no such thing as a perfect laptop. Despite the flaws, I am happy with my purchase. According to Eddie from Geared2Play, the z96j has an official weight of 6.8lbs when fully configured with the 6 cell battery. But due to the manner in which weight is distributed, it subjectively feels lighter than my 14″ Compaq Presario 700, which has an official weight of 6.3 lbs. As a result, I perceive the z96j to be around the 6.3 lb range. If I wasn’t interested in the SXGA LCD, I would have settled for the Acer Aspire 5672 instead of an Asus s96j given my experience with the warm touchpad on the z96j. But as I stated earlier, I believe that the price difference between the z96j and the s96j is justified by its 1680×1050 SXGA screen. If was given the choice again, I would have still purchased the Asus z96j, but preferably from another online vendor since I did not find any reason to spend more money on customer service. On a subjective grading scale, I would rate the Asus z96j an 8.25 out of 10.

If you want a perfectly practical, attractive, highly portable machine that packs a punch for work and play then the Asus W3J should be high on your short list.
