ASUS U36SD-DH51 Overview

  • 1Description

The U36SD-DH51 13.3" Laptop Computer (Black) from ASUS is a compact notebook computer with a streamlined aluminum chassis. The system is built with portability in mind -- it is less than an inch thin when closed, and weighs a scant 3.7 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 the nVIDIA/Intel hybrid system that aims to balance high-performance with energy-conservation. The computer uses a dedicated nVIDIA GeForce GT 520M GPU with 1GB of memory when processing more demanding visual content, such as for games, graphics applications, or HD video. When the notebook isn't processing more demanding visuals, it switches to the integrated Intel GMA HD GPU, which requires less battery power and won't sap your battery life.

The computer is powered by a dual-core 2.66GHz Intel Core i5-2430M processor, which can be overclocked to 3GHz via the Intel Turbo Boost Technology. It boasts 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 640GB hard drive with a speed of 5400rpm. For wired or wireless communication, it has a Gigabit Ethernet port and supports Bluetooth 3.0 as well as 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. For connecting external displays, it features an HDMI port and a VGA port. For connecting peripherals, it features one speedy USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports. An integrated card reader supports five different flash card formats, if you need to transfer files from your camera or camcorder. Plus, for added multimedia fun, there's an integrated pair of stereo speakers, a webcam, and a microphone. Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) is the installed operating system.

    ASUS U36SD-DH51 Reviews

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for writing/editing on the go I am a writer and editor and need to be able to edit remotely. I need a big enough screen to use the snap feature, but not so heavy it breaks my back to carry it. This is a great computer for my needs. Cons: shorter than advertised battery life and the touch pad is a bit funky, but I'd by it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, ultra-portable, great feel I travel all the time so I needed a ultrabook that would not break the bank. Found it - HATE Windows 8, love Windows 7 - Guess what this has on it! Yep! VERY happy with it. Had all the Microsoft office stuff I needed. First picked it up and was awestruck - No, you actually have to put the battery in. Still super light. No DVD, but I bought the external (see that review). Works like a champ. There was a minimal amount of garbage software that took only an hour to completely wipe. Did the backup so I have a complete backup of system. Reviews said the keyboard was a bit of a problem. I think the real feel touch of the keyboard is great. The keys are not backlit, but then again, the price is right. Great PC for Windows 7 people. ASUS makes most of the parts and pieces for other computers, so I went with the name. B&H had the best price and their service is outstanding. I highly recommend B&H. I've ordered more than one computer and other items from them. Fast service. Great price.
