Asus U32U

We just received a scoop that Asus is all set to release a new notebook powered by the AMD E450 APU. It is called Asus U32U and it is being said that U32U will use same chassis as that of U36. Specs include 13.3 inch display, 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, AMD E450 processor, ATi Radeon HD 6320 GPU, 2GB RAM, 320GB hard disk, webcam, 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 802.11n Wi-Fi and a big 8 cell 5600mAh battery that will ensure up to 12 hours of continuous usage.


Oh, and unlike Asus U24e, it actually might make it to US as the price is given in USD – 509 dollars for the Windows 7 Home Basic model and 449 for the DOS model. source – blogeee

It is great to see more and more manufactures now offering notebooks with AMD E-series APUs. I personally think they are very capable and are good enough for running office apps and web browsing. Toshiba is also offering L735D notebook with AMD E300 and I think it is a very good move in the dieing netbook market.

Update – Lenovo 1450ABU also features the same specs but with a larger display
