„Ecotainment“. The Asus U33JC from the "Bamboo Collection" attempts to straddle both multimedia performance and environmental friendliness paired with a longer battery life. Will it manage to succeed or is the netbook just a nice lifestyle accessory in 13.3 inches?

With the Bamboo U33jc, Asus is giving us a machine with good performance levels, yes, but also a 13.3-inch ultra-portable with an original design that stands out from the herd of existing models. If you're looking for good performance levels from a compact machine, the Bamboo U33jc won't disappoint. If battery life and weight are more important, the 13-inch MacBook Air remains a better option.

Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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.

2.08 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
