Asus U30Jc-A1 review: Asus U30Jc-A1

 

Asus U30Jc-A1

Powerful 13-inch with Nvidia Optimus graphics and new Intel Core i3 CPU.

Bulky and heavy; only $100 less than a 13-inch MacBook; no Bluetooth.

Asus has built a solid workhorse in the 13-inch U30Jc-1A that sacrifices some portability for gaming prowess, but still has great battery life.

Asus U30Jc-A1

 

The island-style keyboard means the U30Jc-A1's square keys are non-interconnecting. It's not a traditional keyboard, like the one found in the Dell i1464 and HP dv4-2153cl, and it doesn't have a backlit function like the one on the MacBook Pro 13-inch....

Two GPUs. Nvidia Optimus can seamlessly switch between the two GPUs. Excellent battery life. Full-size keyboard. Metallic top. Big battery. Excellent battery life. Good performance scores

No ExpressCard slot

The Asus U30Jc-A1 is one of the few 13-inch laptops that run on a standard volt Intel Core processor while keeping your bank account out of the red.

Review Asus U30SD-XA1 Subnotebook

 

Little multi-talent. The Taiwanese company, Asus, now has a subnotebook with a 13.3 inch screen and the latest hardware available in the U30SD. The combination of Intel's Core i5-2410M, the dedicated Nvidia GGT 520M and not least the big battery awake...

Good workmanship and aluminum looks, Solid case, Good multimedia performance, Convincing battery runtimes (8 cell battery), Low power consumption (idle), The looks, the good workmanship despite plastic case and the components' performance

Interface array (USB 3.0, eSATA), Glare-type screen surface, Moderate display ratings, Emissions during load (temperature, system noise), Poor stereo speakers, An updated interface supply with USB 3.0 and a higher quality display

Review Asus U30JC-A1/QX043V Notebook

 

All-Day Core i5. Asus has removed the L from their product description and created a more powerful 13.3-incher equipped with a Core i5-430M. Can they live up to their promise of all-day computing with the help of the Nvidia Optimus? Read on to find out!

Very good battery life, Bright display, Stable casing, Good craftsmanship, Premier Alu-look optics, Chassis keeps cool, A stable, premium casing and a technical focus on the essential: maximum battery life

Glare-type TFT, High weight, Scant connectivity, Spongy keyboard, Loud DVD-drive, Docking port, matte display and a decent keyboard. That would have made the perfect Office-companion with power under the hood

ASUS U30Jc Intel Core i3 350M Laptop Review

 

In the past a thin and light notebook meant that you had to make a compromise in battery life, performance, form factor, or price. There is no better example of this than the netbook, where performance takes a back seat to great battery life and very...
