The Fusion we have been waiting for: Asus U32U-RX015

AMD Fusion chipsets combine low cost with sufficient performance. We have seen them in small 11-12 inch ultraportables and larger 14.1-inch laptops. Now Asus has placed the AMD E-450 in a nice 13.3-inch case, which makes for a good balance between portability and utility. 

The specifications are typical for a AMD E-450 ultraportable with a 1366 x 768 resolution display, ATI 6320 graphics, 2GB of RAM and 320 GB hard drive. Some version comes with a USB 3.0 port, but we have not confirmed whether or not the version being sold in the Philippines has a USB 3.0 port. 

The once specification it does have which will impress is the 8-cell battery 5600 mAh battery which should make for a good 7-9 hour of battery life. It packs all this in 0.75 inch thin frame, making  it almost as  thin MacBook Air (0.67-inches) or Intel's new Ultrabooks.  Despite the large battery, the weight is still a reasonable 3.7 pounds.

Being an AMD Fusion based platform, it cost nothing like a MacBook Air or even one of Intel's lower cost Ultrabooks. Priced at Php24,995 without an operating system and Php29,995 with Windows 7 Home Basic.

I have to give this one a look, but unless there is anything seriously wrong with it, it looks like this will be the best low cost ultraportable in market. 


  1. the picture is almost similar but is not the actual u32u-rx015

  2. Sorry. That happens sometimes. The available manufacturer pictures don't cover exactly every model they have on the line up.
