Review Asus G46VW Notebook


Nvidia GTX for a subnotebook. The first ever 14-inch Republic of

Strong base; Quiet keyboard; Large touchpad; Low noise for a gaming notebook; VGA, HDMI, Mini-DisplayPort output connectivity; Good battery life for the hardware; Strong GPU performance; Sleek aesthetics

Non-removable battery; Not made for end-user upgradeability; Low maximum screen brightness; Average display quality for 1366x768 resolution model; Poor outdoor usability; Soft keyboard feedback; Reduced GPU performance on batteries; Slow HDD

The G46 packs one of the largest punches for a 14-inch notebook and is able to remain relatively quiet at the same time.

Review Asus UL80Vt Notebook


Small Power Package! "UltraLight" is the name Asus has given to t

Chic design; Good workmanship; Hybrid graphic; Overclockable CPU; Very long battery life; Price

Small scope of delivery; High black value

Asus UL80JT (Core i3 330UM 1.2GHz review: Asus UL80JT (Core i3 330UM 1.2GHz


Nvidia Optimus switchable graphics; slim design.

Weak battery life; low-voltage Core i3 processor is slower than other Core i3 laptops; too much keyboard flex.

A thin design and Nvidia Optimus automatic-switching graphics make the Asus UL80JT-A1 an initially appealing laptop, but looks can be misleading: the underwhelming CPU and battery life are both serious negatives.

ASUS UL80Jt-A1 Review


Of the numerous 14-inch Optimus notebooks we've reviewed so far, the ASUS UL80Jt stands out as one of the best. For $869, you get excellent endurance for a system this size without sacrificing too much performance. If you're looking for something with...

Good endurance, Sturdy brushed aluminum finish, Above-average performance, Over 6 hours of battery life, Two-year warranty

Mouse button a bit stiff, Keyboard has some flex, Lid picks up fingerprints

Asus UL80J-BBK5 review


For gamers, this could be a strong alternative to an Alienware M11x as a consideration for a compact laptop with some gaming muscle, but for anyone else it's likely to not offer enough beyond its gaming performance for the money. The Samsung Q430-11 is...

Good graphics performance; slim design.

Weak battery life; low-voltage Core i3 processor is slower than other Core i3 laptops; too much keyboard flex.

The thin design and Nvidia Optimus automatic graphics switching on the Asus UL80J-BBK5 are appealing, but the underperforming CPU and battery life on this compact 14-incher are disappointments.

Asus UL80Vt-A1


Asus has its work cut out for it in finding a market for the UL80Vt-A1. This laptop has a higher price ($849) than many similarly specced competitors, though it's in the same ballpark as its $800 stablemate, the Asus UL30A. So how does Asus justify the...

Good screen is legible in direct sunlight ; Switchable GPU and overclocked CPU

The touchpad and mouse button are terrible ; Feels a little flimsy

The UL80Vt-A1 delivers good battery life, a discrete GPU, and a surprisingly snappy user experience, but gets held back on design choices.

ASUS UL80Vt (Vt-A1) Review


The ASUS UL80Vt costs more than other ULV thin-and-light notebooks, but it's worth the extra money for the better graphics performance. If you're looking for something lighter and don't need an optical drive, you may want to consider either the...

All-day battery life, Good graphics performance, Thin design with DVD drive, Loud speakers, Fast Boot feature

Mushy keyboard, Limited display viewing angles, Lid picks up fingerprints quickly
