Silver Arrow. Buyers looking for a compact, reasonably priced, yet attractive multimedia notebook will find the U46SV to their liking. Asus combines a 14 inch case with balanced middle-class hardware. So the question is: do the powerful battery and the graphics switching technology deliver a long battery life?

The Asus U46 certainly delivers on battery life and design style, and the specifications are good. We were a little disappointed by the screen though, and if you fancy this notebook it would be worth taking a look yourself before taking the plunge.

While the Asus U46SV is powerful and its impressive battery life makes up in some part for the bulky build, we'd recommend holding off for the upcoming Asus Zenbook instead.

Overall, the U46S is a laptop that might appear to be ordinary because of it’s size and weight but that couldn’t be further from the truth. It performs better than many other laptops, has a battery life that will last you almost twice as long as some of the other laptops and is easy on the eyes and sturdy in construction. Priced at AED 2,999, it is also easy on your wallet.

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.
