Asus U1F Ultra-Portable Notebook

 

Asus proves that it knows how to make a slim, sleek and stylish notebook, with a bit of cow thrown in.

Asus U1F review

 

A stylish and usable laptop, but too low-powered

Strongly built ; Good screen

Poor performance ; Short battery life

Stylish and highly portable, but its performance lets it down

Asus U1F

 

With a shiny black lid and real leather wrist rest, the £1,399 Asus U1F puts the "ultra" in ultraportable. The lightest Windows Vista laptop we've reviewed, the Asus U1F was a dream to review on the move as it weighs just over 1kg.

This ultraportable has lots of appeal: lightest weight, most stylish exterior, six-hour battery life, and a good screen. But sluggish performance and the absence of a built-in optical drive hold it back.

ASUS U1F (1P010E)

 

Super slim and compact design, genuine cowhide interior, decent array of features for its size

No built-in optical drive, poor GPU, questionable battery life.

We truly wanted to love the Asus U1F (1P010E), but its lack of a built-in optical drive and poor graphics chip dampened our ardour. Nevertheless, it remains a handsome choice for business use and web browsing.

Asus U1F

 

The ASUS U1F is a 2.7-pound wonder with awesome picture quality but, alas, no built-in optical drive.

LED backlight offers terrific contrast. Good battery life. Leather palm rests. Featherweight. Innovative design.

Lacks integrated optical drive. Low-powered components.

Asus U1F-1P016E

 

Weighs 2.7 pounds, Comes with bonus battery

Optical drive not integrated, Expensive

With its leather-clad palm rest, this 2.7-pound laptop is a head-turner, but it lacks an integrated optical drive.

Asus U1F

 

The Asus U1F-1P016E is a true ultraportable that weighs 2.7 pounds and tapers in the front of the case to a thin five-eighths of an inch tall. A lustrous black lid and real leather palm rest add to its appeal. So what's not to like? The speed and...

Long battery Life, LED-backlit screen ; built-in Webcam

No built-in optical drive, Imperfect keyboard

With its leather-clad palm rest, this 2.7-pound is a head-turner but it lacks an integrated optical drive.

Review Asus U1F Notebook

 

Varnish and Leather. Something special came in our editorial offi

Design ; Workmanship ; Quiet ; Equipment ; and even more equipment

Performance too low ; Moderate Display ; Temperature emissions

Expert review by : Rory Reid (cnet.com.au)

ASUS U1F

 

The ASUS U1 is one of the best ultraportable laptops available today, and more than powerful enough for Web browsing and office tasks -- just don't expect it to run 3D games

Piano-black lid and leather palm rest ; Extremely lightweight and very thin

Smallish keyboard ; Picks up fingerprints easily ; No 3D gaming ability

On a final note, the cooling fans inside our U1 were prone to whining a little. It's barely noticeable in day-to-day use, but it can become annoying during quiet periods -- don't be surprised if your partner tells you to switch it off late at night.
