Asus U53JC Bamboo collection

 

Asus U53JC has a bamboo lid, trackpad and a palm rest, making it an eco-friendly powerhouse that sets itself apart

While gaming isn't its forte this notebook packs plenty of value thanks to its aggressive price, features and strong application performance.

Asus U53Jc Bamboo review

 

A uniquely organic design and cutting-edge power, but software is limited

Sharp and vibrant screen ; build quality ; plenty of storage

Poor software package ; Cheap-looking keyboard ; Graphics not that capable

While you'll either love or hate the bamboo finish of the U53Jc, the power and components it delivers ensures this laptop provides great value for money. Only the limited software package lets it down,
