I don’t know why BenQ doesn’t want to impress their customers by showing them a good photo of the product. Have you ever come across a company website which is as bad as BenQ in photo department? No offense BenQ, but why can’t you give good pics. Now let’s get back to work as the firm unveiled another notebook in their JoyBook line-up. The R42 is designed for “value-conscious consumers”, so you can expect a cheap tag on this one. Pre-loaded with Windows Vista, it features Intel Core 2 Duo processor and VIA Chrome9 HC DX9 IGP graphic chipset. It comes bundled with a 60-day free trial version of Microsoft Office Professional 2007. The R42 includes several of BenQ’s technology such as UltraVivid Technology to deliver sharper, clearer images with more refined details.
It employs a cooling system that brings in air from the front of the unit and then vents it out on the sides ensuring an effective cooling system for major heat-producing chips inside the notebook for optimal stability.
