The Asus (model: U43F-BBA6) laptop features an Intel Core i5 processor, a 14″ display and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.
This laptop is powered by the Intel Core i5 480M processor. This is a high-end dual-core processor that runs at 2.66GHz and with Turbo Mode can clock up to 2.9GHz. This CPU comes with Hypterthreading that lets the processor handle 4 processing threads at once. This chip comes with 3MB of Level 3 cache and uses 35W of power. It’s built using a 32nm process. This system comes with 6GB of DDR3 memory and can be expanded to 8GB.
The display is a 14″ LED-backlit high definition widescreen display with a resolution of 1366×768. The screen is driven by Intel UMA graphics which is not powerful at all, so don’t expect to be playing many games.
For storage you get a spacious 640GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM. That’s plenty big enough for whatever you want to put on here. The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support. The digital media reader is of the 5-in-1 type and supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, MultiMediaCard Plus, Memory Stick and xD-Picture Card formats.
