Slim and strong. Asus promises a 19 mm slim case for the U36JC, packed with a Core i5-480M CPU and two graphic chips and that should teach the one or other competitor the meaning of fear. USB 3.0, a large battery and HDMI are also in the bundle. This review will reveal if that's enough.

Given how powerful the U36J is and how good the battery life is, it seems churlish to speculate about what a different processor might offer when you can have a notebook that's truly portable with very few drawbacks.

Overall, performance is quite good, especially with more intensive tasks, like video encoding and HD video streaming. This is definitely a computer that gives you a lot of power in a small, portable package. The strange thing that we did notice is that some of the utilities that come pre-installed on this laptop from Asus have no explanation or documentation on how to use them. Even more strange is that some don't even load when clicked.

Series: In many reviews, the display is described and valuated negatively It is characterized dark and very glossy. Especially positively mentioned are the mobility features, the combination of thin construction, low weight and long battery runtime. Optimally, use these models in trains, buses or public buildings or when you have to switch between several rooms with the laptop. Not suited are bright gardens.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

480M: The Core i5-480M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.66-2.9 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» 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.

1.69 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
