Marketing Information
Under an inch thick!

The ultra-thin and light design fits more technology into a compact form factor that's easy to carry and use. The slim bezel means a bigger screen can be attached to a more slender chassis, while the spun aluminum finish creates a very unique look. ASUS has also engineered a special hinge-forward design for the new U46SV, allowing for a wider opening angle and easier viewing even in the confines of an aircraft seat.

Powerful 2nd generation Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce GPU
