Reviews for the Asus U32VD

Asus U32V / U32VD review – this is how an affordable ultrabook alternative looks like
Source: TLBHD English
All in all, there are many reasons why this laptop can become a hit. As I said from the beginning, this is not an ultrabook, it’s merely a powerful portable notebook with a fair price. As a result, it’s not as sleek, light or beautiful as ultrabooks and lacks some of the fancy features, like the high resolution display or the backlit keyboard. But it compensates when it comes to performances. And then, there’s the price tag, as the Asus U32V is significantly cheaper than the average 13.3 inch ultrabook these days.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M:

Multiple models based on various chips of the Fermi generation. Specifically, the GT 630M exists in GF108/GF106/GF116 variants, but are all essentially renamed GeForce GT 540M or 555M GPUs. A 28nm GF117 variant exists as well with reduced power consumption.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display 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.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
