Asus UL30A-A1 (Core 2 Duo Su7300 1.3GHz review: Asus UL30A-A1 (Core 2 Duo Su7300 1.3GHz

 

Asus UL30A-A1 (Core 2 Duo Su7300 1.3GHz

Strong battery life; reasonable price; slim design.

Some keyboard flex; touchy touch pad; feels a bit cheap.

If you're in the market for an affordable thin-and-light, the Asus UL30A-A1 provides great value and a solid Core 2 Duo CULV processor in an attractive package.

Asus UL30

 

Good battery life ; Great keyboard

Below-average performance

Slick looks, a CULV processor and a huge keyboard make Asus' new ultraportable a laptop worth a second (and maybe even a third) look.

ASUS UL30A-A1

 

The UL30A-A1 is elegantly thin because CULV processors eliminate the need for clunky fans. It stands a little taller than the MacBook Pro 13-inch because it uses a bigger 84Wh battery that props the unit up from the back, but measures thinner in its...

Amazing battery life. Metallic design is gorgeous. 500GB of storage. Software over-clocking feature works well. Comes standard with huge battery. Lightweight. 4GB of DDR3 memory

Available through e-tailers only ; Watch our ASUS UL30A-A1 video review

The ASUS UL30A-A1 is an amazing ultra-thin laptop that gives 10 hours of battery life for less than what everyone else is charging.

Review Asus UL30A-QX050V Notebook

 

15-Hour marathon. The polite big brother of the currently at hand

High Battery Life; Low Power Consumption; Acceptable Performance; Low Heat Dissipation and Low Volume; Large Keyboard Layout

Reflective TFT; Sensitive Surfaces

For those that find the UL30A perfect, with the exception of the reflective display, we recommend a glance at the Acer Travelmate 8371-352G16N Business Timeline.

Asus UL30A

 

If you've got modest needs, the value presented by the UL30A is hard to ignore, especially in light of its amazing battery life. Recommended.

Above average speakers, Excellent battery life, SU7300 processor should cover most needs, Multi-touch touchpad

No gigabit Ethernet, Some of the bundled software isn't as slick as it could be
