Reviews for the Asus U45Jc-A1

The bundled software has been pared down slightly from the U30Jc-A1’s 59 applications. It still includes a host of Asus utilities, which can now be accessed simultaneously through the Control Deck. This is still a hefty array of preinstalled applications, but it appears that each program may prove useful to some subset of the diverse crowd for whom this notebook is intended.

The ASUS U45Jc-A1 ($899) is one of the better thin-and-light notebooks we've tested this year, thanks to its long endurance, strong performance, and slick design. However, the less-than-stellar build quality prevents us from giving this laptop a higher rating or an Editor's Choice award. Although it's not as powerful and doesn't last as long on a charge, the 14-inch ASUS UL80Jt-A1 ($849) offers a sturdier chassis. The Gateway ID49C08u ($849) and the Samsung Q430 ($829) deliver better performance than both of these ASUS machines but don't last as long on a charge. We like the U45Jc, but we don't quite love it.

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.
370M: The Core i3-370M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.4 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). 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.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
