Asus has finally unveiled U38DT notebook and have published more about it on its website. This AMD powered laptop has gathered so much interest with its powerful AMD A8 processor and Radeon HD 8550M GPU. Here is how it looks like.
The body of U38DT is mere 18.6 mm thick and weighs modest 1.55 kg, which puts almost neck to neck with the ultrabook. The screen is, however, little disappointing, packing just 1366×768 pixel resolution.
Fortunately, the screen has touchscreen functionality and it accepts multi touch gestures too that would make Windows 8 experience very pleasurable. Powered by AMD A8 4555M 1.6GHz processor (see AMD A8 4555m benchmark) and backed by 2 / 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, the U38DT offers strong performance.
Ports selection include 3x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, combo audio jack, microphone, card reader (3 in 1), 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Asus U38DT will be priced at 800 Euro, which makes it around 200 Euro cheaper than the Asus Vivobook U38N ultrathin laptop.
