Very good notebook/netbook hybrid

D. Adams, Amazon
16 January 2010
  • Summary: I tried some netbooks for a while but they were simply too small and limited. Dishing out some mega bucks could have helped me along, but I was trying to stay under $600. I then came across the UL20A. I've always been an Asus fan and most people seemed to like the laptop, so I figured I'd give it a shot. The first thing I noticed when I got it out was the quality. While the Acer did feel very sturdy, this raises the bar.

Wonderful, yet flawed

  • Summary: I have owned this computer almost a month and I use it every day. Verdict: I really like this computer; I would buy it again, but it isn't perfect. What is great about this computer: I love the size. I can easily put it out of reach of my children on a window sill or shelf or on the mantel above the fireplace. I can carry it from room to room in the house with one hand without any strain. This wasn't true of the 15 and 17 inch laptops I've had.

Good laptop but not perfect

Taoster, Amazon

  • Summary: Just got from Amazon for Christmas for $589 with $75 Amazon gift certificate. Debate with Toshiba T115-S1105 (Single Core SU2700) and Asus UL20A-A1. Decide to select Asus because of Core 2 Duo. Pro: - light weight 3.4 lb (weight on digital scale with battery) - Pentium Core 2 Duo 1.3 GHz SU7300 is very impressive. It is fast, extremely low power as claimed. It is much much better than Atom processor. - Run like laptop. Quiet, fast, and cool.

Better Than A Netbook

  • Summary: Rather than repeat what's already been said, I'll just add a few thoughts about a couple of areas identified as possible concerns. First, I had no problem connecting with my home network. The router for my wireless network is on the second floor of my house, and I'm primarily using the Asus in the first floor family room. I connected easily and have had no problem. What about the mysterious "flex" keyboard some have complained about?

Mostly Very Pleasant

  • Summary: I have had this little guy for about 3 weeks now. Previously, I was rocking at 2004 15" Mac Powerbook G4. I got this primarily because of the price, size, weight, and CPU configuration. On each of those, the UL2-A delivers fairly admirably. With the $75 gift card accounted for, the price is pretty good. It would have been nice to get it all the way down under $500 but it's not sooooo far off.

UL - Ультрокомпактный ноутбук!

VargWolf, irecommend.ru

  • Excerpt: ASUS UL20A - отличный, компактный ноутбук, или же можно даже сказать - нетбук с характеристикам ноутбука! Покупал этот ноут взамен моральноустаревшего десятидюймового нетбука. По размерам Asus не намного его больше, зато немного побольше экран и поудобней клавиатура. Очень понравилась производительность - достойные характеристики для такого компактного ноутбука - с комфортом можно и поиграть в игры и посмотреть фильм или поработать, в интернете посидеть.

L' Asus UL20A è bello e comodo. La tastiera si piega un po'

alex.os, Ciao
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Mi serviva un computer portatile da portare con me in Giappone e quindi non ingombrante e con una buona utonomia. La scelta è caduta su questo modello della ASUS per i seguenti motivi SCHERMO E' da 12 pollici, ne troppo piccolo ne troppo grande quindi non si affatica la vista. La luminosità è ovviamente regolabile e quando è settata al massimo lo schermo è molto luminoso.
  • Pros: design, compattezza, durata batterie
  • Cons: tastiera leggermente flessibile
