While it may not take the MacBook Pro’s mantle for mind-bending thinness, Asus’ newly unveiled U36 is still mighty slim. The 13.5-inch notebook tips the scales at a little more than 3 pounds (the 13-inch Air weighs 2.9 pounds) and is 0.75 inches thick at its thickest point.
Under the hood, there’s a choice of an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor and NVIDIA Optimus graphics, but the real boon here is a four cell battery that boasts an Apple-smashing 10-hour life. The MacBook Airs only manage 7 hours at most.
