Summary: I received the laptop in good shape and everything that was promised from the seller came with it. The problem is with the wireless internet connection. Every time it connects the connection drops automatically after a few minutes. I know the problem is not with my router because there are other people in the house who use other laptops and they do not have this problem. Additionally, my iphone has no problem connecting to the internet. Does anyone have an suggestions?
Summary: I bought this in May 2010, but within about 8-9 months of purchase the hinge that closes the lid became loose. Slowly the screws holding the plastic casing over the LCD popped off and I could not close the hinge, and the plastic pieces encasing the LCD separated exposing the internal wires. UPDATE: I thought I give the two year warranty a shot and contacted Asus service over the phone.

sleek computer, too bad the battery was bad TWICE.

Summary: Purchased this laptop for the battery life and memory. However, first time I received it, the battery was bad. Calls to Asus just reaffirmed that it was a battery issue- they offered to sell me a new battery, couldn't do much else for me since I purchased it on Amazon. So, I returned it and got a new replacement... with the same issue!!
Summary: This is also my first review of a product. I was really looking forward to this laptop and when I received it and turned it on I was pretty disappointed. The display on this laptop is very poor. The contrast ratio is low, so everything looks a little washed out. Its not terrible and would be tolerable but the horizontal viewing angle is horrible! You have to get the angle perfect to make the display look acceptable.
Summary: I spent days researching laptops when my Dell Latitude died. Everyone I knew told me to get a Mac, but for what I wanted, it would have cost around $1600. I kept seeing the Asus brand in online reviews named as an Editor's Choice. I can now see why... This is a great computer. It's sleek, fast, easy to use, and very lightweight.
Summary: Das UL80VT hatte ich vor einiger Zeit meiner Schwester vorgeschlagen - diese hat sich dann letztendlich für einen Vaio entschieden - mehr als 50% teurer ... Da ich nicht so viel Geld ausgeben wollte, habe ich mich für den UL80VT entschieden - der Preis und die Produktbeschreibung sind unschlagbar.
