The Asus U46SV-DH51 14″ thin-and-light laptop can be pre-ordered now in the USA, via Excaliber PC.
The notebook is thin but it doesn’t belong to Ultrabook category. Asustek has managed to pack a full-voltage Intel Core i5-2410M processor, discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M GPU, 4GB RAM, a 640GB hard drive, and a DVD burner in a chassis measuring 1.08 inches at the thickest point.
The Asus U46SV has a Brushed Champagne casing with a hinge-forward design, and follows a thin bezel trend present in some Samsung, Gateway, and other laptops. Thin bezels allow the 14″ 1366×768 LED screen to be incorporated into a smaller chassis than those of standard 14″ laptops.
This system weighs 4.85 lbs, but that’s with an 8-cell battery, which is claimed to provide up to ten hours of usage on a single charge.
As same as the bigger U56, Asustek’s new laptop has a full range of common ports and slots including HDMI and VGA, 2xUSB 2.0 and 1xUSB 3.0, Gigabit LAN and a 3-in-1 media card reader, besides a 0.3MP webcam, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.
The ASUS U46SV-DH51 is priced at $879 and is expected to start shipping on October 1st.

so why is the “#” key on the keyboard where the enter button is supposed to be?? that seems awkward.. not many people were taught ot type by hitting hte enter key that high on the keyboard!
The bottom is flat, which is nice for a 1″ laptop with an 8 cell battery.
Does the battery stand out from the bottom?
