Asus today announced the release of the U36 model notebook, a
thin notebook with a standard-voltage Intel processor.
ASUS has developed a unique thermal design reducing notebook
thickness to a mere 19mm while still packing an Intel Core i3 or
Core i5 processor. Together with ASUS? Super Hybrid Engine
technology and an NVIDIA graphics card with Optimus technology,
the U36 has a long battery life, lasting up to 10 hours.
While most ultra thin notebooks on the market use a low voltage
CPU because of cooling and power consumption benefits, the ASUS
U36 breaks the mold and offers a standard voltage Intel Core i3
or Core i5 processor for powerful performance. This is possible
thanks to ASUS?s dual heat pipe design which dissipates heat from
the CPU without adding any extra bulk.
With its ultra-light aluminum magnesium alloy shell and 4-cell
battery, the U36 weighs a mere 1.44kg. Its soft-touch nanometer
coating repels dirt and water too, which means the U36 will
always retain its sleek good looks and all day computing won?t
wear users down.
