The U36SD-A1 13.3" Notebook Computer (Black) from ASUS is a super-thin, high-performance notebook computer, designed with all-day computing in mind. This notebook is no thicker than 0.75 inches and weighs a mere 3.65 pounds, so it will seamlessly fit into your bag. While it relies upon high-performance components, such as an Intel Core i5-2410M CPU and a dedicated nVIDIA GT520M GPU, it is designed for power-efficiency and has an 8-cell lithium-ion battery. It features a 10-hour battery life before needing a recharge and has a built-in cooling system so the notebook doesn't become uncomfortably hot to use. The hard aluminum-magnesium alloy casing ensures durability and the nanometer coating provides a surface that's soft to the touch and easy to clean.

Without sacrificing performance for a small size, this computer utilizes a fast dual-core 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-2410M CPU. The CPU can also be over clocked to run at 2.9GHz via Intel's Turbo Boost Technology. For graphics, the notebook utilizes a hybrid system. It features a dedicated nVIDIA GeForce GT520M GPU with 1GB of DDR3 VDRAM for handling demanding graphics. The notebook also has Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated into the CPU. The built-in nVIDIA Optimus technology tells the computer when to switch between graphics processors so as to balance spectacular visual performance with power efficiency.

This notebook features a High-Definition, 13.3" LED-backlit screen that has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and an antiglare panel. Also, if you want to stream video or visuals to another display, the system supports Intel's Wireless Display technology. This technology allows you to connect to an HDTV wirelessly. You'll need an optional HDTV adapter, such as the Netgear Push2TV. For wired connectivity to an HDTV, the notebook features an HDMI output.

Beyond these features, the system boasts 4GB of RAM and a 640GB SATA hard drive that spins at a disk speed of 5400rpm. For connecting to the Internet, it features 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and a Gigabit Ethernet port. It supports Bluetooth 2.1 for connecting to wireless peripherals. For connecting external devices, it has a USB 3.0 port as well as two USB 2.0 ports. It has a 5-in-1 memory card slot to transfer photos or video from your camera or camcorder. For multimedia fun and online chatting, it has dual Altec Lansing speakers, as well as an integrated microphone and webcam. Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) is the installed operating system.

Thermal Cooling Technology
After prolonged use with many notebook computers, the palm rests and the system in general can sometimes become uncomfortably warm. This notebook features an exclusive thermal technology to keep the system and palm rests cool. Using dual light heat pipes and an efficiently-designed layout, heat is transferred away from the palm rest for a more comfortable user experience.
NVIDIA Optimus Technology Extends Battery Life
While the U36 features a standard voltage CPU and a powerful GPU, its battery doesn't drain quickly. That's why the U36 features energy-optimizing technology that works to ensure it stays running up to 10 hours. NVIDIA Optimus technology auto-switches between the dedicated nVIDIA GT 520M GPU and integrated graphics to suit the intensity of the visuals being rendered, resulting in a longer battery life.
Stylish Design with MG-AL Alloy Cover and Silky Nanometer Coating
The U36 features a super-light yet highly durable magnesium-aluminum alloy cover that can handle the rigors of being transported around all day, yet still looks refined and distinguished. An easy to clean silky nanometer coating on the palm rests helps ease the stress of extended workdays while keeping the notebook looking clean by repelling fingerprints and dust.
