Asus U38N-DS81T laptop offers full HD in an aluminum shell

Adding to their line of thin, light and solid laptops, Asus introduced the U38N-DS81T 13.3-inch laptop. It rolls in with a 1080p Full HD touchscreen display and is rigged up with Standard Windows 8, unlike the Windows 8 Pro edition that the U38N series generally comes with. On the inside, the Asus U38N-DS81T offers a AMD Trinity APU A8-4555M processor that’s a choicest pick for basic office and multimedia applications, impressive stereo speakers, 4GB RAM, 500GB storage, a 720p webcam, a trio of USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and mini VGA ports, and a headphone/mic combo jack. Unfortunately, the sleek design leaves no room for an optical drive, something that may lead to many folks passing this over.

If you’re looking for a laptop that’s good to feel and is nestled ina 0.7” chassis then this one’s the right pick. You would miss the optical drive, suffer from under 4 hours battery life (when connected to Wi-Fi) and have to cope with a ‘finicky touchpad’ though. $800.
