Asus U46SV Review: Fast, Comfortable, Enduring, but Too Much Software


The Asus U46SV all-purpose laptop sets itself apart from the crowd through great performance and outstanding battery life--two attributes that rarely cohabitate. The primary reason for the long 6-hour, 41-minute run time is an unusually large...

Good performance ; Great battery life

Too much non-essential software ; Heavy

This all-purpose laptop is stylish with great stats and numbers, but it's also heavy and you must clean out the software bloat to fully appreciate it.

ASUS U46SV-DH51 Review


The ASUS U46SV certainly has the features and power to justify its price tag. For about $100 more than the integrated graphics version of this notebook, you get an Nvidia GPU that lets you play some of today's hottest games, plus long battery life and...

Sleek aluminum design, One of brightest screens in its class, Loud speakers, Good graphics performance, Long battery life

Touchpad can be erratic, Stiff and loud touchpad buttons, Somewhat heavy, Unbalanced audio, Low-res webcam

Asus U46SV-DH51


The Asus U46SV-DH51 is another one of those ultrabook laptops that are coming out these days and it's very similar to the Asus Zenbook that we reviewed a little while ago. This model has a lightweight aluminum design and a very bright, good quality...

Asus U46 SV review


Great battery life and performance in a questionable shell

Fantastic battery life ; Strong performance ; Dedicated Nvidia graphics ; Firm keyboard ; Bright screen

Screen quality iffy ; Chunky build ; Flexible lid ; No exciting features

We've got to confess, the unveiling of the Asus Zenbook has spoiled us. The beautifully slender yet sturdy body is a marvel, yet it still makes room for some powerful components for (hopefully) excellent performance.

Asus U46SV review


An Ultrabook such as the Asus ZenBook UX31 might be the ultimate luxury for frequent travellers with deep pockets, but we suspect most people would prefer to carry a little extra weight and save a few hundred pounds by opting for a traditional...

A great mid-range laptop that won’t weigh you down when on the move – if an Ultrabook doesn’t appeal, the U46SV is the next best thing

Asus U46SV-WX044X review


The Asus U46SV is the smallest laptop in this group – and also comes with the smallest price tag. It might not have the most impressive specification but it has plenty of good features. The battery is probably the most notable of these, lasting a...

If it's a portable, low-cost entertainment-focused laptop you're looking for then the Asus U46SV will be right up your street. You'll have to make a few compromises on the specifications but at £699 it's hard to argue against. It'll also double up as a...

The ASUS U46SV-WX060V laptop flogs two birdies with the same cat-o'-nine-tails. It proffers terrific all-round value by coalescing outstanding technological features with a hip design. The ergonomic styling and practicality of use make it a hands-down...

Asus U46SV review


As hard as Asus tries to muck up a good hardware package with a bloated software installation, the U46SV remains an impressive combination of performance, ergonomics and long battery life. Remove the pre-installed applications you don't want, and...

Consumer review by: Dave4468 (

Great balance of battery life and light gaming!


Regarding the sound: If you care about the sound, plan on also buying a USB sound card. The one I got was an ASUS Xonar U3, it barely takes up any space, and now the sound is VERY good. And it also is much louder. Just make sure you disable the onboard...

LONG BATTERY LIFE ; 6-7 hours on full brightness doing school stuff ; 2-3 hours or so playing games ; GAMING ; Crysis (1024x768) on high settings = 25-35 FPS ; Crysis (1024x768) on ultra settings = 15-18 FPS ; Crysis (1366X768) on high settings = 20-25...

SOUND IS WEAK ; There is only one small speaker on the back of the laptop and the sound is pretty weak. The max volume is not much. Not only that, but the sound quality is not the greatest ; I also noticed that there is a humming when you turn the...
