Default ASUS U6E 12.1" Notebook

Mobile computing doesn't have to be boring - the U6E from ASUS proves that. Within its 12-inch frame is some of the best styling around and very competent hardware, along with a full-sized keyboard, fingerprint reader and four USB ports. Does this small notebook win big time?

Default ASUS puts out some very poor keyboards

I've had an ASUS for three years, with about the same keyboard as this. Did you notice the microscopic size right shift key? The same size as all the other keys. Very easy to miss and hit another key when typing.

This is really annoying. I've had a Fujitsu with the same thing for years, and you never get used to it.

You should actually work on these things before you review them, and you'll see what I mean.

I did work on this thing... for near two weeks while on a business trip. The shift key is less-than-ideal, but what do you expect on a >13-inch notebook?
