There is an issue with some ultrabooks, and is that although they have good technology, they don’t usually come with a DVD recorder or directly do not incorporate an optical drive. Well, this is not true in all cases, since the new Asus S56 ultrabook is 21mm thick and also has a DVD burner.

Equipment specifications are not bad as it has an Intel Core i7/i5/i3, its LED backlit screen measures 15.6 inches and has a resolution of 1366 × 768 pixels. The laptop also has up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB hard drive space + a 32GB SSD and also its graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M 2GB.

Other specifications include a card reader, HD webcam, WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet port, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, HDMI and a 4-cell battery.

The Asus S56 runs Windows 7 and is available in for $915 U.S. dollars.
