The great processor and graphics of Asus U35Jc-A1 are what makes it lead the bandwagon. It is backed by a memory of 4GB, 1,066 MHz DDR3 and 500GB 5,400rpm hard drive. Front-firing Altec Lansing stereo speakers give a pleasant experience for movies and webchat. Though it lacks an optical drive, it makes up with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3 370M and glossy 13-inch 16:9 screen with resolution of 1,366×768 pixels. It comes with an in-built operating system of Windows 7 Home Premium. At $849, though it is expensive, its 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3 370M processor simply takes the award.
