Asus U36 is a notebook prepared to be the next rival to MacBook Air, at least with its 0.75 thick magnesium alloy shell and 3.2 pounds weight, Asus is posing its U36 notebook as the next option to Apple MacBook Air!

Furthermore, Asus also equipped its U36 notebook with a 4-cell battery that is capable to provide up to 10 hours of battery life, compare to MacBook Air that offers only 5-7 hours of battery life. For the processor, you will either get Intel Core i3 or i5, which should offer a better performance compared to the Core 2 Duo processor on a MacBook Air.

Asus U36 is going to use NVIDIA’s Optimus graphics and the company’s Super Hybrid Engine for more energy efficient and longer battery life. No info on pricing and availability yet.
