Reviews for the Asus U31JG-A1

In tech as in life, timing is everything, and that's never more true than in the days and weeks following the launch of a line of new processors. This machine is a serviceable thin-and-light laptop, but with Sandy Bridge-based models flooding the scene, it's hard recommending this model, which is based on an older processor.

The U31JG is ideal for getting work done on the road, but movie and music buffs should look elsewhere.

The ASUS U31JG-A1 doesn't break a lot of new ground. It's just a solid thin-and-light notebook that provides a welcome one-two punch of graphics performance and long battery life. We just wish ASUS could take the flex out of its keyboards. In this price range, we prefer the 14-inch Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG ($799) because it packs in more powerful graphics without adding much weight--though you do sacrifice about an hour of juice. The Portege R835 is thinner, lighter, and faster than both the ASUS and Acer, but you can't really game on it. While we actually prefer the design of the 13-inch ASUS U36Jc, it's about $155 more and has slightly weaker graphics. Some may want to wait for ASUS to add the latest second-generation Core processors to its U3 line, but overall the U31JG is a thin-and-light notebook that delivers.

The Asus U31JG-A1 is a slim little laptop that lasts all day on one charge. Features like Bluetooth and a backlit keyboard are great, but a flawed trackpad mars the overall package.

Overall, the U31JG gets a recommendation. Watch for lower prices though; its MSRP of $849 is high for what is included. It would be a much better value priced $100-150 less.

Now that Intel's next-generation Core i-series processors have finally made it into laptops, we've been seeing a flood of recognizable, revamped products from 2010 emerging with new 2011 components. For $829, the 13-inch Asus U31JG-A1 is a rock-solid compact laptop with a good combination of CPU, graphics, and battery life. However, at this point, we'd hold off on buying one until it gets upgraded with a second-gen Intel Core i-series CPU.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M: The GT 415M is the slowest GT 400M announced in 09/2010 and features only half of the GF108 cores.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.30":

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.

1.9 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


70.83%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
