Review Asus U33JC Bamboo Notebook


„Ecotainment“. The Asus U33JC from the "Bamboo Collection" attempts to straddle both multimedia performance and environmental friendliness paired with a longer battery life. Will it manage to succeed or is the netbook just a nice lifestyle accessory in...

High-end materials and workmanship, Good application performance, Long battery life, Hybrid graphics, HDMI and USB 3.0, The elegant design and applied materials (bamboo and brushed aluminum), just like the latest USB 3.0 port

Poor display, Sound quality, Poor scope of delivery, A matt display so that the U33 really lives up to its claim on mobility

Asus U33Jc


We've long known the inconvenient truth about the negative toll our tech-obsessed society takes on the environment, but Asus makes being green easy with its new U Series Bamboo Collection of laptops featuring hybrid bamboo/aluminum chassis. The...

Lightweight design with great battery life ; nVidia Optimus auto-switching graphics

Terrible Webcam ; Dim screen with poor viewing angles

If you need a lightweight ultraportable laptop that can handle various tasks, the Asus U33Jc is a great choice.

ASUS U33JC Bamboo Review


ASUS is no stranger when it comes to innovative laptop design, and the new 13-inch ASUS U33JC-A1 is the latest addition to the company's attractive Bamboo series. Yes, when we say Bamboo we mean this notebook is covered in wood protected by a durable...

Webcam privacy switch ; USB 3.0 and Wireless Display technology ; Good battery life

Average performance ; Weak (mushy) keyboard ; Lots of bloatware preinstalled

ASUS U33Jc-A1 Bamboo series review


Pandas, East Asia, wood. Nope, "laptop" hasn't ever been on the list of words we typically associate with "bamboo," but ASUS sure has us willing to tack

Stunning bamboo-clad design ; Great combo of performance and graphics ; Over five hours of battery life

Cheap feeling keyboard ; Thicker than other 13-inch laptops ; No optical drive

Asus U33Jc-A1


A one-of-a-kind bamboo design, long battery life, and Optimus graphics make this 13-inch notebook a very good value.

The ASUS U33Jc is easily one of the best-looking notebooks of the year, and the company packs the lush bamboo design with strong overall performance and long battery life. The only thing keeping the laptop from earning an Editors' Choice award is that...

Asus U33Jc-1A


Asus is also quite fond of the chiclet-style keyboards. The full size keyboard in the U33Jc-A1 lacks the backlit function of the MacBook Pro, and while the touchpad and mouse buttons looked exquisite in bamboo, the cursor jumped from time to time. You...

Well-executed, elegant bamboo design. Fastest Core i3 processor yet. Two GPUs built-in. 500GB hard drive. Intel's WiDi present

Cursor jumps from time to time. Heat detectable in the base. Nvidia GPU didn't reach its full potential. Missing optical drive might be a deal breaker for some

The Asus U33Jc-A1 is a mainstream laptop made out of bamboo, packed with an Intel Core i3 processor and Nvidia's Optimus technology.

ASUS U33JC Core i3 13-in Bamboo Notebook Review – ASUS Gets Classy


Laptop design is sometimes a very stagnant field. The basic construction of a laptop chassis has been the same for years – plastic body clad in plastic parts with a plastic lid. Recently we've had aluminum dashed here and there, but any other material,...

Asus' bamboo-infused U33Jc 13-inch notebook


The PC industry has committed a great many crimes against fashion and design. For years, PCs were little more than bland, beige boxes with all the aesthetic appeal of a mid-80s K-Car. Almost entirely devoid of distinctiveness, these so-called clones...

Warning: car analogy ahead. But I can't resist, because the dashboard of a Jaguar is the first thing that pops into my mind when I look at Asus' U33Jc novel blend of brushed metal and mahogany-stained bamboo. This wouldn't be an original design...

Asus U33Jc-A1 Bamboo


Good looks, strong benchmark scores, and Nvidia Optimus technology make this bargain-buy ultraportable a standout for home and small-business users alike.

Nvidia Optimus graphics; affordable; excellent overall performance for its class; unique design

Mediocre gaming at native resolution; ventilation fan gets hot; poor Webcam; no mobile-broadband option

The high-performance, feature-rich Asus U33Jc-A1 Bamboo is, hands down, the best ultraportable $1,000 can buy. Our biggest quibble is the battery life, which could be a deal-breaker for frequent travelers. You can choose longer-lasting ultraportables,...
