Reviews for the Asus U43F

Small Business Notebook Review: Asus U43F Bamboo
Source: Small Business Computing English
The U43F’s an extremely stylish laptop PC that matches its superior aesthetics with good overall performance. It’ll turn heads and should excel as an everyday small business computer for business folk who are on the move.

Asus 14" U43F Bamboo Core i5 Notebook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
All in all, it's hard not to appreciate, maybe even admire, the U43F. We wish the materials used were a bit more rigid and we wish the screen resolution was higher, but the price will be right as-is for a lot of users. At under $900, there aren't too many other notebooks in the market that are this stylish, this easy to use and this capable.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
