Asus UL30A review

28 October 2009
  • Summary: The Asus UL30A is an interesting machine. It’s not the most powerful laptop you can find for $700 to $800. But it’s strength isn’t its power, so much as the combination of price, performance, and portability. It’s a lot like a netbook that way. It just happens to be bigger, more powerful, and more expensive than most netbooks. If you value performance over all else, you can find a faster machine.

Asus UL30A Review

13 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Analysts often report that netbooks have wreaked havoc on traditional notebook sales, and it’s no wonder why: They’ve totally reset consumer expectations of price and portability to a level most overweight traditional notebooks just can’t compete with. The UL30A can. It excels where netbooks fail, without losing sight of the lean-and-mean design strategy that has made netbooks so popular to begin with.
  • Pros: Thin, lightweight; excellent value; outstanding 9-hour battery life; handles Vista with aplomb; attractive brushed-aluminum lid
  • Cons: Spotty Wi-Fi connectivity; quite a bit of flex in the lid; finger drags on touch pad; no optical drive; little gaming prowess

Asus' UL30A 13.3-inch ultraportable notebook

24 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm chomping at the bit to replace my Eee PC with a more powerful budget ultraportable. Unfortunately, each of the systems currently on the market has attributes that have stopped me from pulling the trigger. The UL30A, at least so far, is no exception. Maybe the loose battery tarnished my image of the system early, but it's something I can't stop noticing.

Asus UL30A review

21 September 2009
  • Summary: Take everything we liked about the Asus Eee PC 1005HA (a well-designed, seashell-shaped netbook) and marry that with the CULV-laden Acer Timeline 3810T. The result: Asus's stab at a good, low-cost ultraportable computer, the UL30A.

ASUS UL30A Review

LAPTOP Magazine
18 September 2009
  • Summary: ASUS' first entry into the ULV market provides a great balance between portability, power, and price. Though this notebook isn't a multimedia powerhouse, it doesn't need to be. Consumers who want a light, portable machine that won't choke when taxed or die after a few hours without the power cord will appreciate this system. Though it isn't as thin or as light as the MSI X340 (currently priced at $699), the UL30A easily outperforms it.

Asus UL30A review – best 13-incher under 1000 bucks

11 September 2009
  • Conclusion: The UL30A i tested here is not just a standard portable sub-netbook. No, it’s actually THE BEST 13.3″ mini laptop you may get at the moment in the under $1000 price range . And yes, there are better alternatives; for example, I would instantly give this UL30A for a Vaio Z, but heck, that one costs at least twice as much so it’s not really an option.
  • Pros: good looking and overall great build quality, with brushed aluminum lid cover, good chiclet style full size keyboard, 13.3″ HD Ready (1366 x 768 px resolution) LED lit display, great specs: Core 2 Duo SU9600 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 500 GB hard drive, Intel GMA 4500 graphics, dimensions: 12.9 x 9.28 x 0.98 inches and 3.74 pounds weight with the battery on, Wi-Fi Draft N, Bluetooth and integrated 3G module, HDMI video output, decent battery that provides up to 6 hours real au...
  • Cons: screen is glossy, so difficult to use outside, during the day, keyboard flexes just a little bit too much, touch-pad is not physically separated from the rest of the body, and some might find this annoying especially when scrolling, poor webcam; only a 0.3 MPx one
