Asus U33JC
Source: Itsvet HR→EN
The configuration is fairly well designed, with 2.53GHz Intel Core i3-380m processor , 3GB of DDR3 memory (it is possible to upgrade it to 4GB), 500GB hard drive and a separate nVidia GeForce 310M graphics card, which has 1GB of its own memory. Since there is integrated graphic too, as well as support for NVIDIA Optimus technology, the system will turn on automatically one at a time or two graphic cards depending on the requirements. In addition to the LAN adapter, there are also Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1. Thanks to 4400mAh built-in battery, autonomy is 4 hours of average usage, which is very good considering the fact this is a good configuration. In addition, the package comes with a carrying case, and a mouse with an attractive bamboo finish that perfectly fits the laptop.
