The Asus U33JC is an ultraportable netbook that is extremely energy efficient. It can handle multiple tasks with relative ease. The machine suffers from its useless webcam and below -per viewing angle. The useful nVidia Optimus auto -switching graphics will exite its bankers. Asus delivers a nice product that comes at a fair price, and by playing the environment card, they have certainly raised the bar.
The product comes with a resourceful intel core i3 370m processor that rolls at a supreme speed of 2400 MHz. The two cores come with a cache size of 3 GB. The installed memory is a respectable 4 GB with industry standard DDR3 memory technology. Other storage facilities are SD/MMC card, SDHC card and XD -picture card. The machine also ships with one GB nVidia GeForce 310m discreet graphic chipset with a solid 1024mb memory armour. The device comes with operating system Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition. Other softwares are embedded microphones and webcam bandled with 802. 11n wireless connection.
The Asus U33JC comes with one USB 3 port and two USB 2 ports together with video interface HDMI and VGA. You can add bluetooth and intel wireless display Wi -Di into the bargain. The machine embodies a 13.3 inch Glossy LCD display that comes twined with LED backlight with an unimpressive 1366 -by- 768 maximum resolution. It covers a width of 12.9 inches, a depth of 9.2 inches and a modest height of 1.4 inches. The machine weighs 4.6 pounds that can reach a prime weight of 5.2 inches when loaded with assortments. The U33JC embodies a large space that comes handy in heat exhaustion. It is not condusive for typing and matters are not helped by its poor keyboard feedback facility.
The product offers a great battery run -time return that tops a remarkable seven hours before retiring, that can be matched by few in the market. That fit contributes to its lofty score of 103 in the WorldBench Test, a commendable figure that is only toppled by Toshiba’s Portege R700. The lack of an optical media is a big let down as is its rather mediocal viewing angle that cannot better fourty degrees either side. The LCD, while being an eye candy and and an exhibitor’s dream loses poise in bright light. The wooden exterior and light weight of the machine my give it medals, but it also portrays it as cheap.
The Asus U33JC comes with a hybrid bamboo/ aluminium chassis. It appears to have been reasonably priced at 999 US dollars. The device has its share of setbacks, but with form, function and the environment on its side, it will not be a hard sell.
