While not quite as fancy
as Asus' more recent laptops
, the U1F
does manage to cram quite a few niceties into a rather stylish ultraportable frame. The critical folks over at PC Mag
were able to give this here machine a proper break-in, and the results are lookin' just so-so for those already close to pulling the trigger. First and foremost, the LED-backlit
11.1-inch screen was deemed simply "magnificent," but it wasn't immune to glare from stray light sources in the surrounding area. Additionally, the keyboard was knocked for being (understandably) undersized, and the omission of an integrated optical drive made them none too pleased. All in all, reviewers spent a majority of the time nitpicking this poor lappie and comparing
it to more superior machines
already in the market, so we'd give this one some serious thought before letting that oh-so-seductive display rope you into a purchase you regret.
