If you are thinking about buying a laptop ASUS is the way to go. If you don’t really know which one is the best, CNET will give you a good idea. Also, ratings give you a summary of specs and features, so the first thing you have to do is to look at the rating and then read the review. It might be a highly rated equipment.
So judging by the reviews, these two ASUS laptops are the best. Now let’s see what they can do. Asus U36JC A1 is a very powerful laptop with a very good core to back it up. It weighs a total of 4.5 pounds with the adapter, is 13 inches wide and 1 inch thick, it fits perfectly in any backpack. In the performance department it scores pretty high also. The 2.53GHz Intel Core i5 460M, 4 GB memory and 500 Gb storage space with 7,200 rpm satisfies every customer. The switchable Nvidia GeForce 310M and the Intel GMA HD graphics cards offer serious support , so whatever you wish, this laptop can do, be it gaming, work or entertainment and it won’t break your back either.
Its market value is around $900. It comes at a very accessible price and possibly its only bad point is the lack of an optical drive. The next item is a cheaper and smaller version but it still ranks high. So, for about $500 you get Asus Eee PC 1215N with a 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 dual core processor paired with 2 GB memory and a 250 GB capacity hard drive. It’s less expensive so it does not come with so many features.
Its dimensions are 12 inches wide, 0.9-1.4 inches thick and it weighs 3.9 pounds. While it’s ultra portable, the optical drive is missing, for this lack Asus Eee PC 1215N makes up with the three USB ports, an SD card reader, Bluetooth, wireless and modem connections. All in all, this laptop seems very reliable, having only a few lacks, like stiff mouse buttons and a flimsy keyboard.11
