Asus U36JC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

I thought I was registered but then I realized u don't have to be registered to view all the threads. but anyway, I wanted to ask if anyone heard anything about the asus u36jc and when it will be readily available in the US. i know there are a few sites that have it up but I was wondering when it would hit amazon, and if there is any other option out from asus that has around the same design but better specs or something?

thanks for the help guys

First off, welcome to OCN, this place is great.

Also, as it just so happens, I do know something about this laptop.

It uses a 2.53GHz i5, a 7200RPM 500GB HDD (might be a momentus XD according some forums out there), about 7 hrs of battery life and a Nvidia 310M. What this means, is that its not a gaming laptop, but it will play most games out there at the low settings, and will be a very fast laptop for people that are on the go.

I'm considering this laptop (or the u31JG, which I can't seem to find for sale in the US yet) for a replacement for my netbook, so I've been watching this one quite a bit.

The u36JC is

on amazon right now, and so far I have only seen 2 mainstream reviews out there for it.

Here they are:

It seems that the biggest issue that people are having with this laptop is that it is slightly hot running (which makes sense considering the size and specs of the laptop). However, the actual temps of the components appear to be fine, it just becomes warmer than your average laptop if you like to run prime95 on your lap all day.

Does that help you out at all ?

Cheers!
