As the title indicates the ASUS U33JC-A1 is sleek and stylish. A very posh looking unit covered in real bamboo including the wrist pad area and even the touch-pad. This is not a case of form over function as the ASUS U33JC-A1 touts an Intel Core i3 M370 processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with 4GB of DDR3 RAM. A unique function of this premium machine is the Wireless Display AND the NVIDIA graphic processor unit. Typically, these two are not compatible, but ASUS has worked it out using technology from NVIDIA called Optimus that switches automatically on the go between the two.
The wireless display allows transmission of video and audio to an external source so you can enjoy your favorite movies on your TV or another monitor of your choosing. This 13-inch machine is thin, with the tale of the tape fining it just under an inch in thickness and weighing in at a slight 4.5 pounds. While this machine is a small lightweight, it packs a super heavyweight punch in hardware including one USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports.
Also included in the ASUS U33JC-A1 is a web cam that truly protects privacy. When the web cam is turned off, the lens is actually covered to make sure no transmissions are made. The ASUS U33JC-A1 includes the ASUS Control Deck which allows you to customize your settings like brightness, contrast, and power control settings by using the arrow keys and appears on the screen in 3D overlaying the desktop or whatever application you have open.
Preloaded with 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium operating system you can take full advantage of the host of easy tools Microsoft has worked hard to create. The slim lines of the posh and durable brown bamboo chassis is accented by trimming it in chrome strips, gives the ASUS U33JC-A1 a middle century looking machine with a modern feel.
