Summary: The Asus UL-20A is the smallest in the series of Asus supercharged netbooks. Positioned between a notebook and a traditional laptop, the Asus UL-20A is a bit of an odd duck. Still, in many ways it is a fine little machine that will delight most users. Coming from an ancient (6 y.o.) Sony TR-3 - a predecessor to the notebook phenomena - I was anxious for an upgrade. The Asus is relatively well made with its dressy aluminum outer coat.
Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: I'm getting between 5 1/2 and 6 hours of wireless internet connectivity on a single charge. Simultaneously runs 5 movie clips within MS Powerpoint without any slowdown (CPU only at 15%). Font can be a little hard to read at native resolution and I almost purchased the UL30a instead but desired the smaller form factor. Very impressed with the quality of this unit. Setup to dual-boot to Ubuntu without any problems.
Summary: I've had this for about a week and I'm pretty happy with it so far. I think before too long I'll have add another 2 GB of ram to max it out a 4 GB, but right now it works great. Has some extra features that I didn't know about that were nice, like face recognition software for log in and a quick boot OS for when you don't want to wait for Windows to load.
Summary: I absolutely love the size and weight of this laptop. It is slightly larger than a netbook, but with a full-powered dual core laptop chip. I've used this for a solid 7 hours of light browsing and freecell, it definitely can last that long. My main purpose is web programming and I have not had any issues with performance, even on the power save mode.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet, Windows 7
Summary: I have had the computer for 2 weeks now, I think the computer is almost perfect. It is a great travel companion, it has a long battery life (of course depending on what you are working on).Solid feel to it. Nice look. Incredible value for the price. To this point I have only two cons to add:the touchpad is awful. For reasons that are beyond me, Asus created this stickiy touchpad. My finger cannot glide across this surface.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quiet
Summary: The overall product is excellent. The 8 hour battery can be only achieved by turnning the brightness to the lowest, however, it is still good enough in the night. A lot of unused pre-installed software, take me some time to uninstall.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quality Display
Summary: We bought 2 notebooks, one for each of our daughters' graduation and 18th birthdays. Although they are just getting into using the notebooks our preliminary review is they are amazing. I read the reviews and went ahead and purchased the extra 2G memory and put it in myself - very easy since I am very technically challenged. I am not sure however how easy it is to remove any of the unwanted ASUS software since as I mentioned they are just beginning to use the notebooks.
Summary: 11" netbooks are too small and the atom processor is too slow for my needs. 12" is just the right size, almost the same as some 11" models but much nicer screen. The cpu works nice with windows 7, boots up quickly and everything zips. Just don't plan on playing 3d games or running video encoding, but for web surfing and writing docs, much easier to carry around than a 13" laptop.
