The M70Sa is a 17" media laptop from Asus, marketed towards consumers who want a laptop for video, pictures and work on the side. Featuring recent Intel Core 2 Duo processors, up to 1TB of storage, the option for a Blu-ray drive the M70Sa has all the right connectivity options, including 2 headphone jacks, 1 of which features digital audio S/PDIF, HDMI output for crisp digital video output at full resolutions. And with an ATI Mobility HD3650 the M70Sa is no slouch with gaming, capable of playing even the most recent titles at fair quality levels. However, all this power does have its setbacks. At 8.6 pounds, lasting only 2 and a half hours on battery power, it isn't the most mobile device.
