    ASUS ships sexy carbon laptop for Christmas

    The entire chassis of the W1 is made from carbon material, and will retail for £1399. It will be available exclusively in four London stores: Selfridges, Harrods and two MicroAnvika stores. Specification-wise, the laptop features a Pentium-M 750, 15.4" TFT with ZBD (zero bright dot), 2x512MiB DDRII RAM, 100GB HDD, ATI Mobility RADEON X700, an 8-cell LiIon battery and more. Enough prattling on about the spec and how exclusive it is... will you want one?

    Lovely looking laptop - almost like a black version of the Apple laptops.

    Massive overpriced when you can buy a 7800GTX based laptop for less.

    But then again, if you're shopping for laptops at Harrod, you probably don't care....

    That is a seriously nice looking piece of kit. I agree with Davidstone, its not as highly specced as I would have thought at the price. But its bloomin gorgeous for sure.

    If you use a laptop heavily, it will be worth it, it should retain value very well too.

    I'd be worried about the keyboard n track pad showing wear thou. Also its not a tablet, so who wants it... pooie.
