Review Asus U36SD-RX114V (SSD) Subnotebook

 

Slim and sexy. Though it's not the manufacturer's ultrabook, it c

High-quality workmanship; Firm, stable case; Pleasant surfaces; Keyboard with good feedback; High application performance; Entry level gaming performance; Good SSD speeds; Long battery life; Slim design

Reflective, contrast weak TFT; Webcam with only 0.3 MP

Again and again surprising: An SSD makes standard hardware to a very fast device. CPU performance without significant throttling.

ASUS U36SD-A1

 

The Asus U36SD-A1 packs Core i5 power into a sleek laptop that lasts nearly 8 hours on a charge.

Overall, we mostly like the U36SD-A1. For $899 you get a swift Core i5 processor and Nvidia graphics in a sexy, svelte frame. Plus, this laptop provides nearly 8 hours of endurance. Where this ASUS notebook falls a little flat is its tinny speakers and...

Asus U36SD-A1

 

The 13.3-inch widescreen is one of the few areas where Asus could have stood out but didn't. Its 1,366 by 768 resolution is boilerplate, and it had standard viewing angles. The screen is comparable to the one found in the Toshiba R835-P50X and Acer...

Sturdy magnesium frame. Fast Core i5 processor. Nvidia graphics provides gaming boost. USB 3.0 port on board. Excellent battery life

Heat issues when running moderately intensive tasks. Noisy mouse buttons. Lacks cutting edge wireless features and backlit keyboard

The Asus U36SD-A1 ultraportable laptop is thin and extremely powerful, but you'll need a cooling pad to contain the heat.

Asus U36SD / U36S review – what an ultra-portable notebook!

 

A while ago I got to test Asus's ultra-sleek 13.3 inch laptop, the U36JC. There were many things I liked about it, but the fact that it boosted older generation hardware kept me from recommending it while...

solid body, high quality materials used for the casing and proper attention to details ; sleek looks, with a very thin body ; overall good keyboard an trackpad ; powerful hardware and proper performances ; good connectivity options, with USB 3.0 slot...

the screen and the bezel around it are glossy ; speakers won't impress ; gets hot and noisy under stress (the review unit did at least) – not that much during light everyday use

We’ve reached the end of this reviews and it’s time for some conclusions. As you saw, there are plenty of aspects where the U36SD manages to impress: body, looks, performances, battery life. Screen and keyboard/trackpad are good as well, but there's...

Asus U36SD-A1

 

The Asus U36SD-A1 ultraportable laptop is extremely portable yet compares in performance with most mid-line notebook computers, which is due to its Intel Core i5 CPU and discrete Nvidia graphics. It also has USB 3.0 support and a solid magnesium frame,...

ASUS U36SD-A1 Notebook Review; Ultra Portable & Affordable

 

No one wants to be carting around a five pound brick with them to class, onto a plane or to a meeting but before the advent of low voltage, high

We'll freely admit to sometimes beating around the bush with these conclusions but ASUS has made this one easy for us. The U36SD fits

Consumer review by:

Unbelievably fast.

 

Well worth the money spent, although it is a bit pricey. Lack of an optical drive is a small price to pay for portability and performance. I was a bit disappointed that it has the dual core i7, but boot time and performance are incredible regardless. 2...

Best Product and Deal Ever!

 

This is a great notebook. It is light weight, and has everything on it that I wanted in a notebook. It performs as advertised. The arrival of the notebook was as promised. I am very glad that I bought this product.

Consumer review by:

better than I hoped

 

still gets 5 eggs, makes macbooks look as expensive as they are

fit and finish are great, insanely thin and light, pretty fast

screen could be a bit better, obviously comes loaded with bloatware

Consumer review by:

amazing laptop

 

had they made the bottom and screen bezel out of the same magnesium alloy they used for the top and keyboard this would of been the most awesome 13.3" laptop ever. still recommend it though. i'm very impressed by the size and performance. but i would...

small size ; long battery life (4-9 hours depending on what i'm doing) ; great touchpad ; sturdy as hell (dropped it from 3 feet once and not even a dent) ; ASUS 1 year accidental warranty + 2 year standard warranty ; did i mention performant as hell...

screen is super glossy and kind of low quality ; keyboard keys feel slightly loose and causes me to miss keys more often then i'd like ; lacks a backlit keyboard (not really a con but i would of liked it) ; low res webcam ; bezel around screen is...
