Conclusion: Disappointing is the best way to describe the Asus U36Jc. The company has had much experience in the construction of ultraportables, and seemed to have the formula mastered. Yet this new model has a number of inexcusable flaws. Worst among them is the hardware. There’s been plenty of time for an update to the latest Intel processors, and most laptops over $600 now make use of the newer hardware. Yet this model, which starts at $800, does not.
Pros: Sturdy, pleasurable keyboard, Excellent connectivity, Long battery life
Cons: Poor touchpad, Outdated hardware, Overpriced, Boring exterior styling, Inadequate audio volume, Fan is loud under load
Excerpt: Asus's U36JC-A1 ultraportable delivers a full-powered CPU, a dedicated GPU, and a thin chassis. But without a Sandy Bridge processor or optical drive, it struggles to keep up with the competition.
Pros: Excellent application performance, Nvidia Optimus technology, USB 3.0
Cons: Runs hot, Loose Ethernet cable connection, Lots of bloatware
Summary: Slim and strong. Asus promises a 19 mm slim case for the U36JC, packed with a Core i5-480M CPU and two graphic chips and that should teach the one or other competitor the meaning of fear. USB 3.0, a large battery and HDMI are also in the bundle. This review will reveal if that's enough.
Pros: Very good workmanship, Solid case, Pleasant surfaces, Good keyboard, Good interface distribution, Good application performance, Good battery life, Good keyboard, Slim and elegant design, USB 3.0, Low heat development, The great case, the good application performance, the good mobility characteristics and the prolific typist apt keyboard.
Cons: Reflective, contrast weak display, No ExpressCard, Webcam with only 0.3 MP, Slow mass memory, A mobile device should be treated to the matching display. An anti-reflective surface is mandatory here. However, the contrast ratio and viewing angle stability are also worthy of improvement.
Summary: The Asus U36JC ultraportable laptop has lots of tangible benefits: good power from its second-generation Core i5 processor, lots of ports, and features like a quick start mode that lets you browse the web before you boot into Windows.
Conclusion: The U36JC features a 13.3” HD LED Display that has a maximum resolution of 1366 x 768, which is very respectable for a laptop of this size, and also allows for a decent gaming experience using the U36JCs NVIDIA GeForce 310M with 1GB of DDR3 VRAM. The display itself is glossy and therefore does show some reflections whilst in use but it’s definitely not overly glossy, and is nothing we’d complain about here at Tech-Reviews.
Conclusion: Очевидно, что ноутбук ASUS U36JC адресован пользователям, требующим максимального сочетания мобильности и эффективности в красивом корпусе, и готовым заплатить за это. Если при этом нет никаких требований к функциональности, то аппарат явно придется по душе. Он производит впечатление своей малой толщиной, изготовлен из практичных и прочных материалов, обеспечивает реально длительное время работы от батареи и одновременно уровень производительности «больших» ноутбуков.
