ASUS U36 the first 19mm thin laptop with Intel standard voltage CPU in the world Ultra slim 19mm notebook with powerful Intel® standard voltage i7/i5/i3 CPU Weighs 1.44Kg with 4-cell /1.66Kg with 8-cell battery for up to 10 hours of battery life Lightweight AL-MG alloy LCD cover for a refined yet rugged look Nanometer coating: soft silky palm rest resists fingerprints and is easy to clean Shop Modal header Super thin notebook with Intel® standard voltage CPU In today’s world, more of our daily computing is done on the move, and notebooks have become an essential part of our lives. In the past, having a notebook that was thin and light meant sacrificing performance. Not anymore. Introducing the ASUS U36, the world’s first 19mm thin notebook with an Intel® standard voltage CPU. Featuring NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology, the U36 offers the absolute best combination of performance and energy efficiency for the size. With the U36 weighing in at a mere 1.4kg with a 4-cell battery, it challenges the way you think about light and compact notebooks. Exclusive thermal technology Like humans, the harder a computer works, the hotter its internal temperature gets. The problem with pushing a computer to the limits is the amount of heat it generates and how to get rid of it. With the U36, ASUS engineers tackled this problem by developing exclusive thermal technology to keep the system and palm rests cool. Using dual light heat pipes and an efficiently-designed layout, heat is transferred away from the palm rest for a more comfortable user experience. Stylish design with MG-AL alloy cover and silky nanometer coating The U36 features a super light 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 dust. Faster and better Solid state drive storage makes the new U36SG’s especially fast and durable in mobile use. SSDs expedite data access well beyond the limits of mechanical drives, and are much more resistant to shocks. Models available with up to 256GB SSDs. All U36SG notebooks offer USB 3.0, which works up to ten times faster than USB 2.0. Put together, SSD and USB 3.0 lead to a faster, more rewarding experience with less waiting around for content to move, load, or play. NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology extends battery life While the U36 features a standard voltage CPU and a powerful GPU, its battery doesn’t drain quickly. That’s why the U36 features energy-optimizing technology that works to ensure it stays running up to an incredible 10 hours. NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology auto-switches between the dedicated 610M GPU and integrated graphics to suit the intensity of the visuals being rendered, resulting in a longer battery life.
