Asus’ latest VivoBook U38N has just made an appearance at the FCC, and it goes without saying that the Asus VivoBook U38N itself is set to follow for a general release in due time Stateside. To understand more about the Asus VivoBook U38N, it resembles an Ultrabook, but on the technical side of things, it does not qualify to be one since it is powered by an AMD processor instead of an Intel processor. Still, this 13.3” notebook measures a mere 0.7” in thickness and tips the scales at 3.4 pounds, while sporting a 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS touchscreen display, 4GB RAM, and a 500GB hard drive.
The AMD A8 quad-core processor runs proceedings from within, and you will be happy to know that Asus has thrown in a trio of USB 3.0 ports at the side, in addition to a mini VGA port and an HDMI port. 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity options are complemented by Bang & Olufsen speakers. With its 48Whr battery, it can last for up to 5 hours on a full charge. Windows 8 has been pre-installed as a standard, and the only thing which we need to look out for now would be an official announcement on its price tag and availability.
