Summary: I bought this laptop a few months ago and was looking for one with a long battery life and light weight. I had planned on buying a lenovo, but couldn't because I needed the laptop to arrive quickly (my old one had crashed) and lenovo would take 2 weeks. Anyway, the suggestion that the battery can last up to 8 hours is a lie. Even if you set the screen brightness to zero and limit the maximum power to 20%, the best I could get was 6 hours. However, even this didn't last.
Summary: I bought this little laptop back in January for school. It was a replacement for an Asus Eee 1000 with a dead WiFi radio. I was hesitant to buy another Asus product, but the price and size were right, so I went ahead. This laptop lasted me about 9 months before the graphics card went out on me. I treated both laptops exceedingly well and they both malfunctioned overnight (as in they were fine the night before and then didn't work in the morning).
Summary: oh so why 4 stars.. honestly i'd prefer 3.5.. but.. there isnt' one.. and i definitely don't this is average.. so.. summary: its an ultraportable.. i graded it on value for money (520 at time of purchase) Its portable.. good keyboard.. good screen for watching videos.. though glare is there.. offset against worse battery life than expected.. slower computer than expected... reasons: main reasons for wanting an ultraportable..
Summary: I bought this to replace an Acer Aspire D255 netbook, which was great as far as portability was concerned, but typing on that miniature keyboard was just too much of a pain. And the Atom N450 processor was just slow as molasses. The UL20FT-A1 is the perfect compromise: small enough to fit into my backpack without weighing it down, powerful / comfortable enough that I only ever need to switch over to my desktop PC when I'm editing HD video or playing newer games.
Summary: Ive had this computer for a few months now!!!So here's the deal: I have the SU7300 Version this one is the updated one!!I asume this one is more powerful so anything i have to say should be amplified a bit. Power wise this laptop will be enough for 95% of users, unless you need to encode or process large files than this is not for you, graphic designers or power users wont be looking into this form factor anyways.
Summary: I bought this laptop in October 2010 as an upgrade from my bulky Gateway laptop. It is so light and portable, I brought it to my college classes with ease. I get lots of compliments on this laptop and I haven't had any problems with it. I use it everyday for checking emails, doing homework, shopping online, and watching videos on youtube and netflix. The hdmi plug-in allows me to view movies on my hd tv.
Good battery life and Fast (Overclocks to 1.6 GHz from the factory)

Summary: I love this laptop, it's light and has decent battery life. The 1.2 GHz i3 Intel processor is overclocked to 1.6 GHz and that really makes a big difference on the speed of the system (you can disable this via the desktop gadget to save on battery life). The screen is big enough for almost any activity and I've even run a few Virtual Machines on this laptop without any issues. It has the weight and size of a netbook but the power of a full laptop.
Summary: If you think you'll ever need customer service - Don't buy an Asus. I had to replace my laptop 3 times over the course of the last 2 months and each time I contacted Asus customer service I was amazed by how bad they are. The first 2 laptops that I got from Amazon (Asus20FT) started freezing about 3 hours after I started working with them. They would freeze about 10 times a day and needed force restart.
Summary: I had been looking into getting the UL20A in June/July then I discovered the 1215n that was supposed to be the wave of the future. I spent a month and a half obsessively waiting for the 1215n to be released. Once it finally did, users were complaining it had too much keyboard flex. I go to school at night and my #1 reason for getting the laptop was something portable with good battery life that I couldd use in class. So in one sad instant, 1215n was off my list.
Summary: I bought this computer mainly for school, researching and writing my papers and bringing it to class with me in college. I had been considering the similarly dual core 12.1" asus netbook, the 1215N. But on further examination and review, the UL20ft has a better and faster processor and overall style. (the graphics on the 1215N would be better for gaming, but I don't mind, the UL20ft supports HD pretty damn well) It's extremely well reviewed, all over the nets: [...
