The U41JF-A1 14" Notebook Computer from ASUS is a compact notebook computer with a streamlined aluminum chassis. The system is built with portability in mind -- it is about an inch thin when closed, and weighs a scant 4.6 pounds. What's more, it can run for up to 9 hours on a single charge thanks to an 8-cell battery and the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine power management system.
Graphics are handled by an nVIDIA/Intel hybrid system. The computer uses a dedicated nVIDIA GeForce GT 425M GPU with 1GB of memory when performance is required. It switches to an integrated Intel GMA HD GPU during normal operation, helping to extend battery life.
The computer is powered by a 2.53GHz Intel Core i3-380M processor, which delivers dual-core performance for multitasking. It boasts 4GB of RAM, a 500GB 5400rpm hard drive, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and an integrated webcam. Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) is the installed operating system.
- ASUS Super Hybrid Engine Boosts Performance
- With its supercharged performance, the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine boosts the U41JF notebook performance up to 15 percent in demanding tasks, thanks to its dynamic overclocking technology. It's not simply about cranking up the CPU though, ASUS engineers have specifically tuned several system-wide values to optimise the performance gains for the energy used, and Super Hybrid Engine is designed to work specifically with the computer's Intel Core i3 CPU! The Super Hybrid Engine boosts performance only when required by CPU-intensive tasks, like games and high definition movies, without sacrificing any stability and reliability.
- Battery Boost Means You Don't Compromise on All-Day Computing
- As an urban professional constantly on the move, having a notebook that can keep up with you is of absolute importance. That's why the U41 features not one, but two energy-optimizing technologies that work together to ensure that the notebook stays running for an incredible 9 hours! Super Hybrid Engine's 'Battery saving' mode intelligently reduces power consumption based on usage, while nVIDIA Optimus technology auto-switches between the dedicated GeForce GT 425M and integrated Intel GMA HD GPU to suit the intensity of the graphics being rendered -- making sure that not an ounce of energy is wasted and the U41 remains cooler to use!
- Super Slim, Ultra Portable, Incredibly Beautiful
- Combined with its extremely slim and beautiful 1.1" thin design, the U41 series notebooks can be easily slipped into any backpack or briefcase. Combining this attractive form factor with the technical advancements of the Super Hybrid Engine for extra performance and boosted battery life, it raises the bar even further creating the most powerful ultra-portable in the world.
