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.

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.
