When it comes to notebooks there are two sorts of geeks. There is the type of geek that will pay big money for a machine that is big and has lots of power inside and there is the geek that will pay big money for a notebook that is small and has decent performance with a focus on mobility.
Asus has unveiled a new notebook computer called the U36 that is ultrathin and definitely aimed at the mobile type. The rig has an Intel core i3 or i5 processor and is only 19mm thick. It’s able to be that thin thanks to power sipping hardware and a dual heat pipe cooler for the CPU.
The case of the notebook is made from an alloy of magnesium and aluminum. The little machine weighs 1.44kg, uses NVIDIA graphics with Optimus tech and has a 4-cell battery. That Optimus tech means that the thin machine has some sort of discrete GPU inside along with integrated graphic as well. That 4-cell battery is good for 10 hours of use. Pricing and availability are unknown.Filed Under: Laptops, Technology News
