Asus goes HSDPA with new V2 lappies

So sue us, there just aren't that many specs in the tech world that can warm our hearts quite like a blessed HSDPA chip snuggling inside of a laptop. Add a little bit of teh sexay, plus maybe a 3 megapixel webcam or something, and we're as good as sold. Asus has all of this goodness inside of its new V2 laptop lineup, along with a full complement of Core 2 Duo procs, a WXGA+ 14-inch LCD, ATI Mobility Radeon X1450 graphics with 256 or 512MB of memory, 80-160GB HDDs, 802.11a/b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, DVI, and a fingerprint reader. Best of all, Asus has somehow managed to include "Instant Fun PLUS," which we're sure is just like Instant Fun, but better -- or maybe it just lets you enjoy your media without fully booting the laptop. Tapering from 1.1 to 1.4-inches, and weighing 5 pounds, we could've done with a teensy bit more portability, but we're picky like that. Overall it looks like a pretty good offering from Asustek, though we'll reserve final judgement for when we've got a price and release date.
