The Bottom Line: While this was a good laptop a couple of months ago, it is now obsolete. Buy your choice of ultrabooks and get a better processor, sleeker form, and SSD storage


This would be quite a nifty laptop, with good performance and very 'thin and light' except for the fact that the new 'Ultrabook' category has made this laptop all but obsolete. It has a 'last-gen' processor in the Intel I5-460M, which was a good processor in its day, and is still fine, but Intel's new 'Sandy Bridge' CPUs are much better, and are included in the Ultrabook form factor. One nice thing that the U36 has is a discrete GPU- which many ultrabooks don't. The problem is that it is also last-generation now, although it is still better than the graphics solutions of Ultrabooks. A positive for the laptop is that it is nice and thin, and light, but again most Ultrabooks have it beat. So while this is definitely a nice enough laptop, it's now a year behind specs wise, and is best ignored for the newer ultrabook offerings.

         In my experience with the laptop, it has been more than enough for a portable little workhorse to take to classes and take notes on, and do light web surfing. But in my daily work I also do CAD Modeling and enjoy gaming, both of which the laptop can't handle well at all. For this I had to purchase a nicer desktop computer, but this laptop isn't really designed for desktop replacement anyway.
