Summary: Of the numerous 14-inch Optimus notebooks we've reviewed so far, the ASUS UL80Jt stands out as one of the best. For $869, you get excellent endurance for a system this size without sacrificing too much performance. If you're looking for something with a little more graphics muscle, then the Gateway ID49C08u ($849) is the better option. But if all-day mobility trumps gaming prowess, then the UL80Jt is the way to go.
Pros: Good endurance, Sturdy brushed aluminum finish, Above-average performance, Over 6 hours of battery life, Two-year warranty
Cons: Mouse button a bit stiff, Keyboard has some flex, Lid picks up fingerprints
