Exclusive thermal technology
Like humans, the harder a computer works, the hotter its internal temperature gets. The problem with pushing a computer to the limits is the amount of heat it generates and how to get rid of it. With the U36, ASUS engineers tackled this problem by developing exclusive thermal technology to keep not only the system cooler, but the palm rest area as well. Using dual lightweight heat pipes and an efficiently-designed layout, heat is transferred away from the palm rest for a more comfortable user experience.

Stylish design with MG-AL alloy cover case and silky nanometer coating
The U36 features a super lightweight, yet highly durable magnesium-aluminum alloy cover that can handle the rigors of being transported around all day, yet still looks refined and distinguished. An easy to clean silky nanometer coating on the palm rests helps ease the stress of extended workdays while keeping the notebook looking clean by repelling fingerprints and dirt.
