Review Asus U56E-XX028V Notebook

 

Run notebook, run! The motto: Small and mobile is no longer only to apply to ultrabooks. Asus promises that the U56E is a high performance, enduring runner that will stir up the office field properly. Is this enough to justify a purchase price of over...

Extreme battery runtimes, Good application performance, Low noise development, USB 3.0, The U56E fuses the size and performance of a full-fledged work machine with the mobility of a netbook or ultrabook. Hardly another office notebook offers a longer...

Weak display, Comparatively high price, Average case stability, Somewhat clattery keyboard, Unfortunately, the reflective and somewhat dark screen prevents outdoor use. A slightly crisper keyboard is also on our wish list

Asus U56E-BBL6

 

Its other standout features include a USB 3.0 port (the other two are USB 2.0 ports), and a 750GB, 5,400rpm hard drive, which should store all your digital memories for years to come. A DVD burner allows you to burn DVDs and watch the latest flicks...

Great battery life. WiDi 2.0 and WiMAX wireless technologies built-in. Gorgeous design. Priced reasonably. Numeric keypad included. Excellent performance scores. USB 3.0 port onboard. Largest hard drive available

WiDi 2.0 requires Netgear receiver, a $99 purchase

The Asus U56E-BBL6 budget laptop has all the desired features, including a fast Core i5 processor, cutting-edge features, and best-in-class battery life, sold for a price few can pass up.

Asus U56E-RBL8

 

As confident in its looks as it is in its performance, the Asus U56E-RBL8 ($779.99 list at Staples) has almost everything going for it, inside and out. Only a couple of demerits dull the impact of its robust selection of hardware, not the least of...

Strong performance, battery life. Comes with lots of RAM, hard drive space. Attractive design

No USB 3.0 ports. Cheaper Asus laptop offers more features for less money

The only thing preventing the budget-minded Asus U56E-RBL8 from being a terrific buy is stiff competition from another Asus laptop.

Higher-End Design, Respectable Performance, Cheap $$$

 

I bought the U56E BBL-6 (the 2430 i-5 that cnet doesn't seem to believe exists) at Best Buy as an opened return for $470 in January 2012. It is a great machine! I love the power settings button that instantly changes from high performance, media,...

Fast ; USB 3.0 ; Sturdy Construction ; Battery Life (battery saver) ; Great Keyboard

Track Pad could be better ; Battery Life (high performance) ; Integrated GPU is lacking for anything more than office work and old/light gaming

Meh

 

Would not buy. Seriously build your own, this computer isnt worth the trouble you'll have with it.

Fast, great for simple things like writing papers, low resolution games. Easy things

Loved Machine but it bombed

 

I loved this machine. It had all the specs I was looking for. Unfortunately, while I was setting it up, it abruptly powered off and rebooted. I experienced this 3 more times over the next 2 hours of installing software. I then noticed that the...
