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


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...

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...

Asus U46 SV review


Great battery life and performance in a questionable shell

Fantastic battery life ; Strong erformance ; Dedicated Nvidia grahics ; Firm keyboard ; Bright screen

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

While the Asus U46SV is powerful and its impressive battery life makes up in some part for the bulky build, we'd recommend holding off for the upcoming Asus Zenbook instead.

Asus U46SV


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


The Asus U46SV may be at the heavier end of portable, but it's slim enough to slide into a bag and will be right at home in your office space. It's got enough power to chew through your work and will even tackle some games when you're finished.

Sturdy construction ; Excellent gaming performance ; Good power for general computing tasks ; Attractive design

Screen could be better ; Thicker and heavier than other ultra-portables ; Lid hinge will be annoying for some

The Asus U46SV may not be as slim and light as the Asus Zenbook UX31 ultrabook, but it's far from bulky and its design will be as welcome in the office as it is in the cafe.

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 2.3GHz Intel Core i5-2410M dual-core processor and 4GB of RAM provide the grunt while a 500GB hard disk handles storage.

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...
