Asus U32U Notebook Review

ASUS offers an exciting new product. Asus U32U become an attractive alternative for those of you who want to have ultrabook but have a limited budget. With fresh APU (Accelerated Processing Units) processor from AMD, Asus offers advantages in battery durable and attractive prices.

AMD previously is quite successful on the basis of APU to update on their processors. This step raises the CPU E-450, to replace the E-350 is prepared for the entry level notebook (Brazos platform). Now Zacate APU-based notebook series (series E with a TDP of 18 watts) is more often used, such as in Asus U32U. E-450 processor has been equipped with the Radeon HD 6320 graphics chip is fast enough (600 MHz).

One of the benefits of E-450 processors on the Radeon HD U32U located at 6320 which paired the CPU to boost a more powerful graphics capabilities. In this way, the notebook-based E-450 would win hands down compared Atom netbook lineup that still rely on onboard Intel graphics. With this composition, I expect an increase in performance may be more pronounced in 3D graphics.

U32U Asus design is similar to other U3x line, which emphasizes aspects of sleek with minimalism round ornaments. The facilities available are fairly standard but provides two USB 3.0 ports are increasingly popular. This product comes with a cover based magnesium-alloy are strong but lightweight. Coating the palmrest with nano technology make the touch feels soft. This makes ASUS U32U remains an elegant as economical version of the notebook.

Typically, the accused party is positioning itself as the operating system is "safe" with a variety of arguments, as supported by the community, have a layered defense, programmed to think of security factors, and so on.

The real question is not about whether an operating system is safe or not, but whether the operating system is quite interesting to be attacked or not. If there is one operating system with a market share of more than 70%, very difficult to get people not attracted to dissect and make malware to attack the operating system.

This assumption can be demonstrated on Microsoft Windows as PCs operating system is the target of virus. In fact, the Windows Mobile operating system from Microsoft is not attractive to malware makers.

In smartphones, ruler of the largest market share is the green robot - Android which is actually uses the Linux kernel. This operating system is phenomenal because just in a few years can master world's largest market share smartphone and installed on 200 million devices per November 2011.

A very large market share by Android is inviting the criminals who want to get profits by creating malware. Today, it can be said that Android is a smartphone operating system that is the most sexy and become the number one target of malware makers.

Nokia 808 PureView

Nokia 808 PureView is the Nokia's first smartphone to use the PureView technology. This is a technology that combines 41 megapixel sensor, exclusive lens Zeiss Carlz and Nokia's algorithm for oversampling of pixels.

What does it do? This way. If you zoom in standard resolution (2, 3, 5, or 8 megapixels), image quality does not come down.

Whereas if you set it in high resolution (up to 38 megapixels), you can perform a zoom setting, reframe, crop, and the size of the image. File size of the image is still compact so it can be sent via e-mail, MMS or social networking.

In addition to the great ability to record images, the Nokia 808 PureView can record and play 1080p HD video and 4x zoom with no loss of quality. Rich Recording Technology allows the audio its recorded with a quality equivalent to CD without the help of an external microphone.
