84% Review Asus VivoBook U38DT Subnotebook | Notebookcheck
Flat beauty. The VivoBook U38DT is a 13-inch subnotebook that is powered by a Trinity processor and the brand new Radeon HD 8550M from AMD. The ultra-thin construction and the precious metal ensure a very nice look. Is it worth the 800 Euros (~$1092)?

AMD Radeon HD 8550M:

Lower-end graphics card based on the GCN Mars architecture. Equipped with DDR3 VRAM and offers a 64-Bit memory interface.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.55 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
