Reviews for the Asus U53JC
A unique laptop when it comes to design, and a great one when it comes to power. The U53Jc isn't cheap, but we feel the price is warranted.

Do you need bamboo in your computing life? Probably not, but it looks swell. And although there's certainly a premium to be paid for the inclusion of bamboo here, the specs and styling are classy enough to have pushed the price pretty much up there anyway. And those specs mean this is a nippy, enjoyable-to-use laptop with a lot going for it. If it were lighter or smaller (there is a 13-inch screen version) then this would be a cool-looking, stylish portable. As it is, it still looks good but you might want to keep it on your desk.
