Natural bind Technology

  While many notebooks come with metal and plastic materials, this series tries to remind us of nature by incorporating natural elements are more alive. If you've ever noticed the car's interior luxury, consider the part of his dashboard. Usually this section using wood materials for a natural look as well as elegant. Well, touch wood is also manifested in the new Asus notebook series U43Jc included in the Bamboo series. In this case bamboo material used to cover and palmrest (back of the hand) which makes this notebook a unique look.

  Although designed with the look of a friendly, U43Jc was prepared to work quite fierce. Because the computer is equipped with the latest processors Core class i. Especially we tried this using the Intel Core i7-M620 plus 4 GB of DDR3 memory is quite fast to run the computing activity. This notebook uses Super Hybrid Engine technology (SHE) for the battery was wearing did not quickly run out of power, then. This will determine the appropriate level of power consumption required activity. While working full-power will be provided with optimal. But if conditions are too relaxed CPU (idle), the power consumption be reduced. This is similar to Optimus technology from nVidia that govern work assignments onboard graphics (Intel GMA HD is more calm) and a separate graphics chip (GeForce 310M more powerful) automatically.

  Facilities at Bamboo U43Jc itself fairly well balanced, with a HDMI port to replace the absence of FireWire ports. The USB port was only 3 pieces, but one of them already bertekenologi USB 3.0 (colored blue for a faster connection).
