11" should be around USD1.2k
13.3" should be around USD1.6k

However, at south Korea, the price, after converting to USD is about $2.2. Pray hard it is the formal price man.

It is suppose to be out in March but that is for US and Europe. Not much news about in Asia...... Go youtube check it out. The USB port can be hidden. Wonder if the hinge is durable. Note that the battery is built in. Screen is glossy.

Anyone know how the benchmark for the graphic card is like compared to 310M? I can't seem to find it.

Hai.... dun think I be able to wait for this. Properly getting U36JC. sob.......

but the HD3000 used in the CULV has been tuned down (a lot) to lower the power consumption.

like what fre3dom85 said, HD3000M is abt the same as 310M depends on what benchmark-tool/game is using.

however, as the HD3000M used in the CULV CPU (eg. i5-2537M, the one used in Samsung 9 Series) is a tuned down version, i would expect the performance would be lower than 310M (no figures yet as CULV has not launched yet!).

having said above, do note that all these r still categorised as low-end GPU.

some figures for HD3000M (n 310M):

Cool. Thanks for the update. That mean a large pary of the price go to design. I was thinking the spec of this would at rahrer reasonable compared to u36. That settle. Now just wait for IT Fair

yes, the battery life is supposed to b very good due to the use of CULV CPU. unfortunately, to keep the notebook lighter and thinner, battery with lower capacity (eg. 4-cell) is usually used.

1 examples is Asus U36:

no, not high-end as in "most powerful in notebook". but it is high-end in it's class. this is a premium model due to it's small form factor, light weight n the use of CULV CPU. CULV CPU is expensive, not bcoz of the speed, it is bcoz of the power efficiency.
