Review AsusPro P56CB-XO193G Ultrabook
« on: July 13, 2013, 09:07:02 »
Inexpensive business Ultrabook. The 21 mm thin business device from Asus has a 15.6-inch display and combines an Ivy Bridge processor, Nvidia's GT 740M and an SSD cache storage solution with a noble aluminum case. You can buy all that for just 650 Euros, but what are the drawbacks?

With thermal problems, and a noisy fan, even at a ultra low V with low freq processor - I say why consider such above a Sandy Bridge based notebook ?

Another question which begins to arise is - again - why Intel simply discontinue the Ivy Bridge processors, and stick to the Sandy Bridge processor, till they get the thermal problems solved on their two latest series - the Ivy Bridge and now aparently also the Haswell processor, two processors which I thin are both a flop, but market seems to carry one as nothing is wrong.

Why Intel have these thermal problems is still not mentioned in public - but some qualified ques would be either the 3D transistor technology or/and the HD4000/5000 internal graphics - perhaps a more sophisticated problem related to hitting a wall in the nm area.

There are fortunately still many Sandy Bridge based notebooks in the market, for example a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 530c at 400 EUR, which all in all is a much better product than this Asus(Pro).
