ASUS U41JF-A1 Review

 

The ASUS U41JF is a thin-and-light, 14-inch notebook with powerful Nvidia graphics and excellent battery life. Combine that with a good Intel Core i3 processor and a price tag of less than $900. What's not to like? Keep reading to find out.

Great graphics performance ; Excellent battery life (7.5 hours)

Subpar build quality ; Poor keyboard ; Inaccurate touchpad ; Fingerprint magnet ; Not enough ports

Asus U41Jf-A1

 

Exceptional graphics performance and long battery life make this one 14-inch laptop worth owning.

The ASUS U41Jf has plenty going for it. Its long battery life, great performance, and robust graphics mean this notebook can work for hours, followed by a quick round of Modern Warfare to blow off steam. We wished there was less flex to the keyboard...

ASUS U41Jf-A1

 

A brushed aluminum lid. More than 6 hours of battery life. And enough graphics power to play demanding 3D games. The 14-inch ASUS U41Jf ($849) is a thin-and-light notebook that combines sleek looks with solid performance. But there are some things we...

Asus U41JF-A1 - Core i3 380M 2.53GHz - 14 review

 

Asustek Computer may still be best known for its low-cost Netbooks, and occasional high-end reaches such as its Republic of Gamers desktop replacements, but the company churns out a fair number of middle-of-the-road systems as well. The Asus U41JF is a...

Solid performance; includes switchable discrete graphics; slim body.

Two-tone body doesn't come off as high-end; lots of competition in this price range.

The Asus U41JF is a workmanlike but uninspiring 14-inch laptop that offers decent performance and graphics and excellent battery life, but costs nearly as much as a MacBook.

Asus U41JF-A1

 

Battery life is always determined by how big the battery is, because component placement will only get you so far. It's the reason why the Asus U45Jc-A1, with its monstrous 84WH battery, lasted a whopping 9 hours 27 minutes. The U41JF-A1 was given a...

Huge 83WH battery. Over 8 hours on a single charge. NVidia's 400 series graphics is a gamer's delight. Good horsepower from the Core i3 processor. Lovely aluminum design. Lightweight. Reasonably priced

Keyboard flexing can be detected

The Asus U41JF-A1 is the most well-balanced mainstream laptop, combining excellent power with all-day battery life.
