Powerful 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 Performance
This ASUS notebook has a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-2450M processor and can easily handle more intense multitasking, higher definition multimedia and faster productivity. The discrete nVIDIA GeForce GT 630M graphics card with 1GB of dedicated memory boosts visual output with native DirectX 11 compatibility for the latest in graphics, so that everything from HD movies to high-end PC games runs smoothly and in incredible detail
Thin, Light & Portable
The ultra-thin and light design fits more technology into a compact form factor that's easy to carry and use. The slim bezel means a bigger screen can be attached to a more slender chassis, while the spun aluminum finish creates a very unique look. ASUS has also engineered a special hinge-forward design, allowing for a wider opening angle and easier viewing
USB 3.0
This ASUS notebook features superfast USB 3.0 for the latest in data transfer standards, working up to ten times faster than USB 2.0. However, for charging of portable devices, a dedicated powered USB 2.0 port with USB Charger+ achieves faster and more energy efficient recharging. This allows all your devices to connect and recharge, even when the notebook is powered off
Extended Battery Life
Highly efficient technology and optimized energy requirements give you the benefit of a finely-tuned battery that can last up to 9 hours on one charge. This means true all-day computing wherever you go, with no need to stop and seek out an inconvenient wall socket

      Comments about ASUS U46SM-DS51 14.1" Notebook Computer:

      After researching for laptops at an affordable price, this was the one that offered better specs than any other at its price.

      Pros:
      - Beautiful Design
      - NVIDIA GeForce 630M GPU made 3D games run smoothly at HIGHEST video settings
      - Tons of settings allowing me easy access to save batteries or use at maximum performance

      Cons:
      - Slow shipment (Of course I live on the West Coast)
      - Optimus Technology often causes problems relating to game/system settings (i.e. does not switch GPU intelligently sometimes and could not update drivers unless I manually inserted code to text documents)

          Comments about ASUS U46SM-DS51 14.1" Notebook Computer:

          I bought this notebook primarily because of it's 1GB dedicated video card. Along with a 750GB Hard Drive, 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 and 8GB of DDR3 RAM, it edits large megapixel pictures, and 1080HD video seemlessly. The physical appearance of the notebook is very classy, and I also like that the 750Gb hard drive is partitioned. I use drive C for my MANY software programs, books, and mp3s. On the second drive I keep my pictures and videos.

            We bought this for my daughter as she heads off to college. It seems the perfect choice, stylish and compact with plenty of power to run her favorite game Sims 3.
