You’re so tall, you’re so tall.

ASUS U36No, I’m not spouting the words of 80s retro music just to horrify you. I’ve been inspired by the U36 ultra-portable notebook from ASUS. This is, wait for it, the world’s thinnest notebook with a standard voltage Intel Core i5 processor.

The chassis is only 19mm thick. I mean, that’s thinner than my average sandwich. At least I won’t be tempted to eat it.

The ASUS U36 harnesses the power of a standard Intel Core i5 processor so you have extraordinary mobile performance in a light and sexy body that’s easy on the arm and the eye. The ASUS Super Hybrid Engine, combined with the Nvidia graphics card and Optimus technology saves power smartly – so the U36 delivers an impressive 11.5 hours of battery life.

ASUS U36That is really a knockout feature, you have to admit. I have to travel to events quite a bit and often find that my battery life dies just when I really need it. It’s extremely frustrating, especially when I have to then plan events around power supplies and usage times to avoid that problem.

So, yes, almost  full day of battery life is a big plus point for me.

You can find some ace videos of the U36 right here on Tech in Style, showing off the various key features admirably.

Not only do I amble about going to events and looking massively cool with my tech (haha), I have a kid. And this offspring, like her mother, is completely smitten with technology. This is why the U36’s other feature – the nanometer coating – is a hit for me. It repels dirt, water and fingerprint marks (yay!) and makes the U36 look good.

I have already mentioned to you that I’m shallow so it should come as no surprise that I love this notebook as much for its looks as for its features…
