Asus U36J review – sleek and powerful, but is it what we need?

7 March 2011
  • Conclusion: As you could see in the review above, there are many aspects to like about the Asus U36J portable laptop. However, I do feel that buying one right now would be hasty. And here’s why: with Intel’s new SandyBridge platforms popping out, the hardware inside this one is outdated.

Asus U36J

Pocket Lint
20 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Asus has already given the U36J a slight bump in spec, from the Core i5 460M to the 480M (and from 3GB to 4GB of memory). That's not the same as upgrading it to a second generation Sandy Bridge processor but so far those are showing up in 15-inch systems so we wouldn't count this as immediately out...
  • Pros: Few thin and light notebooks are this powerful, with a full Core i5 and decent battery life in a small and sturdy package
  • Cons: There's not much wrong with the keyboard, screen, touchpad and port layout but they don't really shine either

  • Summary: Отличный универсальный ноутбук — и чтобы поработать как следует (спасибо платформе Sandy Bridge), и чтобы себя показать (да здравствует шлифованный металл!).
  • Pros: Металлические детали корпуса, ­неплохая производительность, отличная ­клавиатура, компактность.
  • Cons: Глянцевый дисплей, не самая ­удачная конфигурация ОЗУ в комплекте поставки.

Asus U36S

11 May 2012
  • Conclusion: waży 1,7 kg, czyli nieco więcej niż przeciętny netbook (1,2 kg). Wyposażony jest za to w większą matrycę i ma większe rozmiary (322x232x19 mm). Obudowa jest bardzo sztywna (klapka chroniąca ekran nie wypacza się nawet przy mocniejszym dociśnięciu) i jednocześnie praktyczna.
  • Pros: Poreczne rozmiary, Jakość wykonania, Długi czas pracy na baterii
  • Cons: Mała wydajność w przetwarzaniu 3D

Lille, kvik og billig

5 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Kombinationen af 4 GB ram, den kvikke processor og et Nvidia-graffikkort giver en bærbar, der altid føles frisk i sin performance. Desuden er skærmen med sin 13,3 ”-størrelse og 16:9-format gearet til multimedia. Vil du se film, skal du dog hente data online eller via et eksternt drev.

Test: ASUS U36 - schlanker Flachmann mit i5-480M

4 April 2011
  • Summary: Dass eine vergleichsweise starke CPU in einem kleinen Gehäuse Spaß machen kann, das hat vor Kurzem erst Sony gezeigt und wird von ASUS nun abermals unterstrichen. Die Leistung stimmt und dennoch wird das überaus flache U36 weder zu laut noch zu heiß – wie schön das wohl erst mit Sandy Bridge werden...
  • Pros: Sehr gute Verarbeitung, Zeitlose Optik, Leicht, Schnelle CPU, Sehr gute Akkulaufzeit, USB 3.0 vorhanden
  • Cons: Dunkles und kontrastarmes Display, Dedizierte GPU verfehlt größtenteils ihren Zweck
