ASUS U36SD DH51-13.3-inch Thin and Light Notebooks

In today’s world, more of our daily computing is done on the way, and notebook computers have become an essential part of our lives. In the past, with a notebook that was flat and easy to sacrifice meant power. Not any more. Introducing the ASUS U36, the world’s first 19mm thin laptop with an Intel standard voltage CPU. Equipped with NVIDIA Optimus technology offers the absolute best of the U36 combination of performance and energy efficiency for the size.

The U36 and weighs a mere 1.4 kg with a 4-cell battery, it challenges the way you think about light and compact notebook. Cache Memory Installed Size 3 MB, RAM Installed Size 4 GB RAM Max Supported Size 8 GB RAM Technology DDR3 SDRAM, HDD spindle speed 5400 RPM; Processor Number 2430m; interfaces VGA, HDMI, RJ-45, USB 2.1; USB 3.0, headphone, microphone, Data Link Protocol Ethernet, Bluetooth 3.0, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE 802.11 b / n / g; Battery Technology Lithium ion, 8-cell count cells; Power Device Type AC A.

This machine as it stands is very good. It is light, long battery (8:30h in saving bat mode, but if you use video media it is near 4:30h), and powerful. The only downside is the HDD that comes originally, it is a 5600rpm and for my taste it is too slow. I wanted a faster HDD, but SDD are too small in storage size or too expensive. So, I went for an hybrid SSD/HDD (Seagate momentus). Changing the HDD is not difficult if you are a bit skilled and there are many tutorial videos on youtube that show you how to do it. You have to open the computer because the hatch under the laptop only gives access to the RAM memory. But, as I say, it is not difficult and the change is really worth. The speed increase is very noticeable from the very first moment.
