Summary: This laptop is just great. As an IT major, this computer allowed me to program, dual boot Linux and Windows, and do many other things without stress. The double processor gives a real boost in term of performance. The startup is one of the fastest I seen so far. I carry with me anywhere I go due to its lightweight and slimness. Get it!!!!
Summary: I purchased this laptop a few weeks ago to replace a netbook, I wanted something as light as a netbook but because I often use it to work on word processor, I needed it to have a big enough screen to allow me to comfortably view documents and have enough speed to keep up with my typing. The ASUS UL20A-A1 has met each of these needs perfectly.
Summary: I'm a programmer, and I was afraid that this laptop, being kind of a "overpowered netbook," would fall short my performance requirements for programming. I was positively surprised :) I usually have VNC, Skype, my browser, editor and terminal open at the same time, and it's still responsive and fast enough. Besides that, it's light, which is pretty important when you're riding a bike.
Summary: I bought this laptop about 2 months ago for using it at the master degree I'm talking at the university. It's perfect. Not to heavy, good screen size... 12" are enough for taking notes and doing some projects without any effort of your eyes. The performance is really good, the core 2 duo stands really good against a couple of programs you throw at it. And is better than the atom processor.
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: Very impressed. As light as a netbook with enough power and screen real estate to replace a full-fledged notebook. Vibrant screen, 4-5 hours of battery life in High Performance mode, quiet and cool. Can't say enough about this laptop for the mobile warrior.
Summary: I love this laptop! It is super light and has even more gadgets than my old huge Compaq. It looks like a netbook but with a lot more power. I bought 2 and my husband and I love them. The new Windows 7 is very easy to use. One of my favorite things in this laptop is the zoom in and out that can be done with your fingers on the mousepad (just like the iPhone)! It is the coolest thing ever since you don't have to sacrifice your eyes for the size of the screen.
Summary: I bought this ASUS UL20A-A1 computer after reading every thing I could on laptops on the internet. My last two computers were Dell and HP. I had seen ASUS computers in stores, but figured they were some cheap knock offs on the standard computers I was used to. After reading about them from the consumers point of view, using Amazons user's reviews to do so, plus going to BEST BUY and trying out their ASUS computers(they didn't have this particular one at that...
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
