OnlyUMPC.com have bought/acquired/pilfered an ASUS R2H. What do they think?
I guess we’ll see some testing from them soon but in the meantime, they’ve posted a set of images. On the image below, I’ve taken the liberty of overlaying another images of an R2H. You can see the differences in battery size between the European and U.S. versions.
The U.S. version comes with a 48W/hr battery. (Model No. R2H-BH059T) The European version comes with the 24W/hr battery. (Model No. R2H-BH039T)
The ASUS takes about 12W average drain which is a high-average for a ultra mobile PC and I suspect that including the battery is a strategic move. The competing Q1b and Koreans favorite (I hear from Raon Digital) Vega have already cut the drain figure down to an amazingly low 8W. Thats at least 25% less than the ‘Worlds Most Energy Efficient Notebook‘!
