Asus U46SV Review: Fast, Comfortable,
The battery protrudes about a half-inch beneath the

you a firm, yet comfortable grip when toting it about

and also adds a slight forward rake that puts your

hand at a better typing angle. All told, the heavier,
larger, longer-lasting battery should please more
users than it discourages them.
The U46SV sports a stylish aluminum lid and key-
board deck, though the effect is cheapened slightly
by chrome touchpad buttons and a rather bright
power button. Still, while the touchpad buttons
are distractingly reflective, they also have just the
right amount of resistance. The U46SV's breathable
Chiclet-style keyboard feels exactly like those found
on Lenovo U series (a good thing)-crisp, even though
the keys travel only a short distance. The touchpad
is nicely responsive as well.

from the crowd through great performance and
the U46SV with a Core i3, less memory, and less
outstanding battery life-two attributes that rarely
capacious hard drives if our configuration's $900
cohabitate. The primary reason for the long 6-hour,
price tag seems too steep.
41-minute run time is an unusually large 74-watt-
hour battery. The large battery is also responsible
for the U46SV's hefty 4.9-pound static and 6-pound
travel (with AC adapter) weights, but clever design
makes the unit feel lighter than those numbers might
lead you to believe.

Asus U46SV Review: Fast, Comfortable, Enduring Laptop
ling unnecessary software is in order if you want
the performance you paid for. Not all the software
is useless: Cyberlink's Power2Go supports the inte-
grated DVD burner, and the starter version of Office
2010 is on hand for productivity chores.
As hard as Asus tries to muck up a good hardware
package with a bloated software installation, the
U46SV remains an impressive combination of per-
formance, ergonomics, and long battery life.

The U46SV's ports include VGA and HDMI, three USB
ports (one of which is USB 3.0), ethernet, and an SD
card slot. The laptop includes both headphone and
microphone jacks, as well as a Kensington lock port
on the back. You get a webcam, too, but for some
reason Asus opted for a relatively low-resolution
0.3 megapixel unit.
Though the U46SV turned in very nice performance
numbers, it performs sluggishly for the first minute
after booting with the stock software configura-
tion. This is largely due to loading a whopping 32
nonstandard startup items-the majority of which
aren't particularly useful or necessary. Some time
