Coated in piano black, with extremely deep set, blue reflective particles and with trims of silver, the new Asus U series manages to evoke a sensation of stylishness right out of the box.
Opening to the inside, you'd swear you were presented with the PC equivalent of the MacBook. Chiclet-style keys, a backlit keyboard and a multi-touch touchpad with lights that follow the touch of your finger are the orders of the day. A single sensor on the left adjusts the brightness of the screen dynamically depending on the environment you're in, as well as auto-switching off the keyboard backlight when things get bright enough. Unlike the MacBook, the user has control over the brightness, able to set three different levels, or switch it off entirely.
The 14-inch glossy, 1366x768 screen is attached to a circular hinge, meaning no ports are on the back — only the front and sides. An air vent sits on the left-hand side, meaning left handed external mouse users may feel a warm breeze during use.
