Summary: Pros: Nice chiclet style keyboard. I like the touchpad. Very durable, good build quality, it can take a beating. Runs cool, unless under very high load. Nice long battery life. I can get 10 hours in battery saver mode. Good value when I bought it. Cons: Speakers suck. 5400rpm hard drive is horrendously slow and bottlenecks the system. Consider replacing. Screen resolution is meh, but that's to be expected with most laptops in the market today.
Summary: Pros: Graphics: Most affordable laptops don't have dedicated graphics RAM and such. This one did, and it's a big plus. Battery: Tested to see how long it would last. 80% brightness + wifi on + Internet use = around 6-7 hours. Pretty good. Keyboard: I liked how soft and quiet the keyboard was. Cons: Sound: Terrible sound by Altec or something. The placement of speakers was a bit unique also, but the quality of sound itself was unbearable.
Summary: ---Overview-- Here's what's great: portability (size, battery life), connection ports, build quality, and sleek design. Here's what not: low-end graphics card, slow hard drive, abysmal built-in speaker quality, high-friction touchpad ---Highlights--- BATTERY LIFE (10/10) is what drew me to this laptop. The reported value is 9.5 hours.I was skeptical of this, but I personally got 10 hours with casual wifi browsing with the screen set at a reasonable level of brightness.
Summary: I'd give it a 3.5 if I could. First off, let me say that I have not run a high end program on the computer quite yet (such as a newer game), but for the rest of what I have used it for, so far it has been decent. It runs netflix fairly smoothly and a couple games I played worked very well. I am not doubting the higher end spectrum of the computer. It's the little things I think they got wrong. The bloatware on this computer is ridiculous that it comes with.
Summary: runs real quiet and cool, is light, but as one of the 2 star reviews said, this isn't a thin laptop, it's not big, but it's not small. i ran cs source on all high settings at 80fps. It's able to run empire total war on all high settings with no lag, but for a game that requires more than cs source, I noticed it ran hotter (prob the fact the graphics card is being used a lot).
Summary: Just got this laptop 2 days ago thanks to amazon prime shipping. I needed a small and light laptop with some juice and purchased this laptop. Pros: -Sandybridge CPU, very fast and snappy. -G520M with optimus. I love this technology, as it saves a lot of battery. You can choose what program to use with the discrete or integrated video card. I've only tested counter-strike source and I got up to 150fps, ranging around 50-70 average on High settings!
Summary: I've broken this review into sections with a number rating out of 10 for each. There's a pro/con summary at the end. =============== Keyboard: 9/10 Excellent size, layout and tactile response. The black on black chiclet keys look sharp, modern and are comfortable to type on. Typing is also relatively quiet and unlike a lot of other Asus laptops, there is very little flex. I love the minimalist look and that there are no superfluous media keys.
Excerpt: La asus mi ha sempre soddisfatto, anche se i suoi prezzi non sono un granchè... Mi sembra giusto che per avere tutto ciò si viene a pagare più di 700 euro... un ottimo hard disk da 300 GB, un'ottima CPU da 2.2 Ghz, un buon processore intel core i3, una fantastica RAM da 4 GB e un' ottima scheda video da 1 GB... La garanzia è di un anno, ma più di questo non si trova... Pregi E' davvero veloce e va liscio come l'olio, si riavvia in pochi secondi... ...
Gebruikersreview - Asus U30SD-RX135V review door Dethroned

Excerpt: Voor mij was het zoeken naar de geschikte laptop vooral eentje van het vinden van een laptop met de voor mij meest prettige toetsen. Ik ga deze laptop vooral voor school gebruiken en moet er ook fijn op kunnen tikken. Wat dat betreft is deze laptop een absoluut fijne aanschaf en ik tik heerlijk blind op het toetsenbord. Deze laptop is qua specs eigenlijk niet zo heel bijzonder. De Core i3 2nd gen doet prima zijn werk en 4 gb mem zorgt ervoor dat alles prima loopt.
