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.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

14.0":

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.

2.1 kg:

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