From my perspective this is one of the main strengths of this system. The card reader works fine, however has a poor design. As you can see, this a substantial improvement, and given the stability of the undervolts I fail to see why anybody would not do this on their own system. Discussion in ‘ Asus ‘ started by glentium , Jun 6, I would also like to note that the optical drive is incredibly quiet both when reading and writing a disk. If you use memory cards frequently, this may be a problem for you.

Having read about Asus systems here on the forums, I was keen to look into them further. I’m eyeing this ASUS: It is about the size of a small mobile phone, and about twice as thick.

Similar activities on AC power resulted in the fan spinning at the low setting. Included mouse accessory view large image. However, there was a plethora of processes on start-up over 70!

Through high quality headphones, the integrated audio sounds acceptable with a fairly low noise floor. The location of the USB ports is somewhat unusual but provides decent scope for your peripherals since there are 5 of them.

The notebook as a whole is slightly thicker than I would prefer, giving it a somewhat bulky look from some a33f. There is some flex in the screen frame but I find that this situation very rarely occurs in everyday usage.

The plastic used in construction is of a decent quality with a good finish, especially on the lid which fortunately does not collect fingerprints easily.

Unfortunately it is very difficult to know which button you are going to press or indeed, if you press any button at all. This serise computer is most comfortable with general computing tasks and flies through them all without a hitch. Separate buttons and a more defined touchpad would be an improvement.

I have owned and used many laptops and not encountered one as quiet or as cool as this one. This does not seem to impact performance so far however, with the system coping with all admittedly tame tasks I have thrown at it.

Knowing her penchant for treating technology badly however, the gloss black lid was unlikely to stay perky for long. The vocals however are clear and would suffice for when some background music is required.
