Excerpt: The Asus u30jc is an impressive laptop. It uses the newer generation of core i3 (or i5 depending which version you buy), and has a plethora of features. One of those features is a dual graphic card (onboard and ATI) which can be switch during realtime, so that when using normally that doesn't need to be graphic intensive can be done on the onboard card, and when the user needs to play games that requires more power can be done through the actual graphics card.
Excerpt: This computer is very fast and accurate. They are often used as a gaming computer so they have to be fast and powerful. When you press the power button it powers up really quickly. The internet is very fast because of this computer and so is every other program whether it is a very big program or not. Every program starts up in a flash and works smooth. The computer is nice and light-weight. It has a good mouse pad, good keys, and good sound.
Excerpt: I got this for my gf. She is sort of a computer noobie. Therefore, she doesnt need a powerhouse computer. But, I didnt want to get her something that wouldnt be able to handle all the hd media out there. Enter the asus u30jc. It has a core i3 processor coupled with dynamically switching gfx card to give an added performance boost to play media. In terms of the form factor, it is quite portable. Id say its somewhere in between an ultra-portable and a workplace laptop.
Summary: I got this laptop for my wife, and she loves it. It's small but still has a comfortable keyboard, looks cool, and feels nice and sturdy for how light it is. I myself have an ASUS G51JX laptop and love the hardware, they are fast and reliable. So far the U30JC is following suit, and J&R had a great price, not going to get a better deal, thanks J&R! The only down side is the partitioned hard drive that is already loaded with bloatware. Wish they would not do that...
Summary: I use this product for personal use, from using it to do spreadsheets, downloading music, and playing virtual games and searching the web. The screen is on the smaller side, but I am not into the big screen laptops and my previous laptop was 14in, so it was a slight adjustment. I love how light it is when I use it on the go. It's fast and graphics are great. Only downside that I came across is the speakers are absolutely terrible.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quiet
Summary: Using the Asus for school. love it. never had a problem. Researched brand by asking 3 local computer repair shops about the brand. They stated.."If it wasn't for Compaq, HP, Dell, and Gateway, we would be out of business. The Asus is the computer we own." At all three places. What a No-Brainer!!
Summary: for the price, I couldn't find a better set of components out there, especially considering hd space didn't mean much to me. the keyboard feels good in use, but it pop up a bit around the f8 key. which is a little worrying after only 2 days, I'd rather not glue the thing in place. the bloatware and the hd partitions are aggravating, but i don't have the time to deal with it now (school computer). biggest gripe; the speakers are absolutely terrible.
Pros: Feels solid, Good components, Great price
Cons: Keyboard flex, Terrible speakers, Ton of bloatware
