Reviews for the Asus U1F

70% Asus U1F
Source: PC Mag English
ASUS laptops have fervently pushed the design envelope in the past two years. After all, AsusTek is widely considered one of the top five ODMs (original design manufacturers) in the world. It makes every laptop component imaginable, including chassis designs for Apple computers, so it's only logical that it would excel in this area. The ASUS U1F ($2,100 street) is the company's latest bid into the ultraportable market. It weighs a svelte 2.7 pounds and rocks LED (light-emitting diode) screen backlighting technology. The U1F is a traveler's delight—that is, if you can live with carrying an external DVD drive. Only a handful of vendors use LED backlights in their laptops.

As a slim and lightweight notebook, Asus has got things right with the U1F, as we found it a great machine to carry around and work on. It may not be the most powerful notebook out there, though and the battery life detracts from the overall usability but if you’re looking for an ultraportable that won’t break the bank, then it’s worth considering.

With a shiny black lid and real leather wrist rest, the £1,399 Asus U1F puts the "ultra" in ultraportable. The lightest Windows Vista laptop we've reviewed, the Asus U1F was a dream to review on the move as it weighs just over 1kg. This ultraportable has lots of appeal: lightest weight, most stylish exterior, six-hour battery life, and a good screen. But sluggish performance and the absence of a built-in optical drive hold it back.

Accented by a shiny black lid and real leather wrist rest, the $2199 (as of April 11, 2007) Asus U1F puts the "ultra" in ultraportable. The lightest Windows Vista laptop we've seen, it weighs 2.4 pounds, no heavier than a teacup Chihuahua. The thin case offers a surprisingly full set of connections, including built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless communications. You could use the bright screen to find your way out of a cave, and the battery lasts for more than 6 hours on one charge. These are good qualities for an all-day, on-the-go laptop to possess. But can you type on it?

Asus has definitely proved that it knows how to build an ultra-portable notebook – the U1F is small, light and incredibly stylish. It’s also great seeing a dual core CPU in a machine so small. That said, I think I’d probably still go for the VAIO TX3XP, with it’s integrated DVD writer and nine hour battery life just tipping the scales in Sony’s favour.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)


U2400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.1": This is a quite small display format for subnotebooks. However, most netbooks have an even tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
