Summary: I currently go to med school and the main reason I went with this laptop is due to its portability. There are other laptops out there that are a little cheaper w/o the graphics card but I do every now and then play Total War games. I generally get at least 6 hours out of this guy when not doing anything that would require the graphics card to kick in. When gaming, I get around 3 hours. But almost always, I never have to stop in the middle of my day to recharge.
Pros: Fast, Fast Start-up, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Cons: Bloatware, High Pitched Whine, Mediocre keyboard
Summary: This is a great light laptop for everyday use. The optimus technology handles games well. The core i3 processor is great, although it is soldered to the motherboard and not upgradeable, for those hoping to switch to a i7 processor in the future. Great battery life- I get 6-7 hours per charge regularly. No bluetooth but I have not needed it for anything yet. It's just surprising for a laptop not to have bluetooth in late 2010.
Summary: Stylish, long battery life, lightweight and powerful. Strange combination for a laptop don't you think? Like half a year ago to have a laptop as powerful as this one would mean that you had to sacrife something like: battery life and weight for power, but not anymore. This is all thanks to 2 things (well 3 if you add the reduction in size of the transistors): 1. the Power4Gear software of asus that lets you switch between 4 different power plans in an instant 2.
Pros: 500GB Hard Drive, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful
Summary: The Asus U35JC is my first laptop that i'm using on a regular basis. Since im moving to UNI i thought that i might just own a pc that i can carry with me to classes and use between classes. It proves perfect for my demands which were: light quick and smooth interface comfortable keyboard affordable Other than the touchpad driver that doesnt include the right click function i cant say anything bad about it so far. i have had it for the last 2 days.
