Review Asus VivoBook U38DT Subnotebook

 

Flat beauty. The VivoBook U38DT is a 13-inch subnotebook that is powered by a Trinity processor and the brand new Radeon HD 8550M from AMD. The ultra-thin construction and the precious metal ensure a very nice look. Is it worth the 800 Euros (~$1092)?

High-quality materials, Thin and lightweight case, Good port layout, large touchpad, Very good build quality, Moderate emissions, Backlit keyboard, Compact power supply unit, Matt surfaces, Notebook bag, Stylish design, Good display, Fair price,...

No recovery or driver DVDs, CPU throttling in everyday situations, RJ-45 only via adaptor, A CPU-throttling should not occur under normal circumstances
