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: 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.
Summary: I have had this computer for about 6 months now. When I was looking at laptops, I had several ideas of what I wanted. I wanted *12.1" to 14.0" screen *practical, sturdy construction *better than average battery life *enough performance to do anything I want to do I found all of that with this computer. The body of the unit is a blend of plastic and aluminum, giving it sharp looks and a good solid feel to it.
Summary: Likes: Nvidea Optimus graphc card(s) let you switch between a discreet graphic card for gaming and computer aided drafting, awesome movies and a lower power graphic card (something call intel graphics media accelrator) Battery life last me bout 3 to 4 hours for intense gaming and movie watching. Portable(enough said) Good screen resolution and color. High speed CPU makes calculation programs solving through programs like beast. Dislikes: Mousepad.
Summary: I've been using the laptop for nearly a month and have been very impressed with the balance of performance, battery life, size, and weight. It runs all my applications without trouble. I use it primarily as a website development machine. I can have my entire XAMPP development environment loaded, including Eclipse, MySQL, Apache, and Photoshop without it slowing down at all. The keyboard and trackpad are easy to use and the screen is great.
Summary: I was looking to replace a laptop that was about 6 years old, and had a bit of a budget to go by. There were two major things I was looking for: Discrete video card under $900 I agonized over various Toshiba (since my previous laptops had all been Toshibas) and Acer models, and came upon this one, from Asus. So here's my review: Pros: It's a pretty powerful little machine. Graphics card and CPU are both fairly powerful.
Summary: Pros: fast performance, long battery life, dedicated graphic card (not integrated) light&compact, stylish, reliable brand Cons: The middle of keyboard area dips a bit with heavy pressure overall highly recommended
Summary: Best laptop w/core i5 for the price. hardware of this machine has good balance with performance side being stronger. battery last long in compare to other machine with same spec. It took me over a month to come up with best choice, and i Picked this laptop. by the way, accidental warranty for 1 year is really cool. it covers damage based on drop, spill or anything else.
Summary: Great laptop for the price. A step above a netbook in size, but with great hardware. Ubuntu 11.04 runs well and has out of the box support for everything, including SD card slot, which was a nice surprise. Only complaint was that the default OS had a bunch of bloatware, but if you are looking to reformat and install linux this is the laptop for you.
