Reviews for the Asus U36SD-RX114V
Slim and sexy. Though it's not the manufacturer's ultrabook, it convinces with its slim silhouette, its velvety yet hard aluminum case, its battery life and, above all, its swiftness via SSD.

Quite nice to look at with its matte black shell, this laptop retains all the strengths of the U30SD (powerful processor, decent gaming capacity and battery life). Removing the DVD player has allowed Asus to bring the price down and make this model an attractive buy for those looking for a powerful ultra without paying an arm and a leg.
