The U36 features a super lightweight, yet highly durable magnesium-aluminum alloy cover that can handle the rigors of being transported around all day, yet still looks refined and distinguished. An easy to clean silky nanometer coating on the palm rests helps ease the stress of extended workdays while keeping the notebook looking clean by repelling fingerprints and dirt.

5 out of 5 eggsMany nice qualities, few limitations

Pros: Light Weight, Great keyboard touch and layout, VG speed espeially w/ 8 gb memory upgrade, feels solid, USB 3.0, price, inclusion of Nvidia not just intel video, longer battery life. Have 2 other Asus laptops which have not had trouble over two years. Speakers as good as any better than ROG big boy G series.

Cons: Screen contrast not great, especially for lots of reading and typing. You will be disappointed if you have had small laptop w/ 1600 or 1900 resolution. Ok but not great video on webcam.

Other Thoughts: Absence of DVD not a real problem if you have cheap external. May be a problem if you want to view movies on air flights and don't want to carry around extra gadgets. If this is as reliable as others I hope I will not have to use Asus support. When I needed support for Motherboard this has been slow, technically not versed , and less than motivated. Consumer patience ultimately triumphs.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm happy

Pros: Nice keyboard, comes with Win7 Pro x64, hard drive comes with 2 partitions (OS and another for your data).

Looks slick

Long battery life

Insanely fast

Can play games fairly well, especially considering its and ultra-portable (I can play MassEffect 1 and 2 on medium settings, with textures on high, games are still very much playable)

When just doing websurfing or idling over night, this computer gets no warmer than any other laptop I've used (including IBM/Lenovos).

Feels solid in your hands

Cons: Runs fairly hot when playing games, and the heat is on the left side of the computer -- where my hand rests through out entire game playing sessions. But what do you expect? It's an ultra portable that is playing GAMES!

Screen seems to have bad contrast ratio. To get better blacks, you can adjust the screen to be parallel to your face (which you do with every other laptop screen), but then the blacks aren't uniform through out the screen. To get the uniform contrast ratio, i found I had to tilt the screen more towards my chin then my eyeballs, but then the blacks are more of greys. Kind of disappointing.

Feels like the big battery is making it a bit heavier -- pointless for me, as I will always bring my power adapter (they include the high-capacitor battery, vs the normal battery).

Other Thoughts: Reviewers for previous models of this laptop said the network RJ-48 network cable wouldn't "clip" into the port on this laptop. This issue seems to have been fixed on this model, as I've used the port many times without issues.
