Reviews for the Asus U46E-BAL5

90% Asus U46E-BAL5
Source: PC Mag English
Mainstream laptops win awards by delivering all the goods at an almost unbelievable price. The Asus U46E-BAL5 is equipped with a powerful Core i5 processor and maxes out its memory banks, while throwing in Easter eggs like WiDi 2.0, WiMAX, and USB 3.0. It also sports an attractive exterior, which is just as important. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal than this. As such, it's our new Editors' Choice for mainstream lapotops.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
