Asus R2H: Detailed Review

What’s in the Box?
There has been a lot of speculation that all the US models will have the double pack battery, still no confirmation on that. But the one that I got, did come with the double pack battery.

  1. It is a while back in the comments, but woould like to ask a question about the RAM for the R2H. I see on the Kingston site (www.kingston.com) that there are 2 GB DDR2-667 modules available. I can not find the size o them. IS this possible? and what are the specifications for the R2H memory bank?

    thanx

  2. Please help me with info on the below.

    1. is it possible to put a single 2 GB DDR2 stick in the empty slot of R2H?
    2. How is handwriting recognition working on R2H?
    3. Can we put contents of XP CD in a 2gb USB memory stick and then install on to the machine? I mean, will R2H boot from USB drive?
    4. Are the drivers from ausus website latest or the one supplied with the machine ?
    5. Can we replace hard disk with 32gb ssd cards?
    6. Standard packing of R2H has the battery?

    Thanks…….

  4. Has anyone gotten the A/V out to work? I have the right cable but when I hook it up to the my analog TV it does not show up.

  5. I ‘ve got the unit a few weeks now but came to the conclusion to put it away and to ban it out of the office;
    It cost so much time to figure out everything. TV doesn’t do anything. Wireless, cannot get it working; memory, insufficient and who is selling the upgrade sticks? Need to run to a store AGAIN; Navigation, not practical; Installation of programs without having a cdrom drive, how? batterylife 1 hour…; for me without glasses the screen is too small.
    It is a toy but I do not see me using it really in a business situation were time is valuable.
    Also you need to be very familiar with drivers stuff and fiddling around with settings of all kind.
    You, nerds will all smile about me but I am gonna give this R2H away to some student here.

  6. AV out – using a zune cable works fine, but color coded wrong, trying to remember think on the zune cable the red is video.

  7. hi
    i am frm india. bought asus r2h a few days back…
    it did not come with the gps software . can i down load it? frm whr?
    the notebook is quite sluggish during autocad operations also same is the case during movie playbacks..?
    i am very much confused ..how much RAM the m/c really has.
    thnx.

  8. The on-screen keyboard no longer displays. When I try to bring it up it is just a blue box. It almost looks like it is so far up that I can only see the bottom of it. Is there any way to reposition it so I can see it again?

  9. I’m surprised the R2 comes with a AV out plug and then no cable is supplied and no attempt is made to explain what type of cable might be needed. There are all kinds of frustrating things like this about this unit. It is not supplied with GPS software in Australia and there is no documentation on how to get it to work or even what package might work with it. There seem to be few packages around designed to run from laptops too.
