Reviews for the Asus U35Jc
Netbooks may offer serious mobility at a low price but, as many users have found out, their performance leaves a lot to be desired, especially if you frequently run multiple applications at the same time -- and who doesn't these days? It may lack an optical drive, but the 13.3-inch Asus U35Jc impresses with its fast performance, long battery life and sleek design.

Flexing keyboard aside, the U35Jc is an excellent laptop that offers extremely good value for money. It loses a point for that iffy keyboard, but its overall performance is good enough to earn it our recommendation; if you want something a little but different from a 13-inch laptop, it's your best option.

The More Things Change the more they stay the same. The ASUS U35Jc seems to be in many ways a series of trade-offs with the U30Jc, and that's disappointing because it really should have just been an improvement. The U35Jc sports a slightly faster processor, sheds a pound of weight thanks to ditching the optical drive, has a slimmer body, and marginally improved backlighting on the screen.

Let's be honest; 13.3in notebooks hit something of a sweet-spot, don't they? We've often felt that 13.3in notebooks hit a sweet-spot, and they seem to be getting sweeter by the day. ASUS's latest effort, the U35JC, is mighty close to offering it all. Both CPU and GPU performance is exceptional at this size, and the notebook manages to retain the other two must-have features; portability and a long-lasting battery.
