Asus W5F review: Asus W5F

The W2V's support package is disappointing. The standard one-year warranty covers parts and labor, but you'll have to pay to ship the laptop back to a repair depot for service. Also, phone-support hours are limited, and the call is not toll-free. The company's support Web site includes the expected driver downloads as well as a handful of FAQs, and you can always post questions to the company's active user forum.
