Summary: Okay for those of you who don't want to read a detailed review, read section a. If you have time, skip to section b. a) This laptop is powerful and portable enough to take anywhere, so long as you can live with some fingerprints. It also lasts like 8 hours on a single charge. b) Let's start with the battery life. The Asus ul80vt-a1 comes with a huge 8-cell battery. I can see a lot of users actually not needing the amount of battery life available.
Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: I purchased this after alot of research. I have used a large number of laptops, none of which I would have considered buying. This laptop blows away all others that I have used in all aspects. I really don't understand the complaints that others have expressed, as mine exhibits no flaws of any kind. I Love It!!!
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet, Specs To Price Ratio
Summary: I have owned ASUS netbooks before and was intrigued by their notebooks. Product works great. I haven't gotten the 12 hours out of the battery but I have been able to get 8 hours on the 8 cell battery which sure beats other manufacturers. Very pleased with product.
Summary: I wanted a portable laptop, but netbooks are too small and underpowered. This notebook is for people that want small with no compromises. The battery life is awesome, partially because of the Nvidia technology that switches between the integrated graphics and the dedicated graphics card. It is quite light and thin, but still has everything I need.
Summary: this thing will game decently and you get a great battery life, does require the owner to learn a bit to manage the battery ( shut off overclocking and second graphics card, which is very easy)
Summary: The set up was easy. Everything worked right out of the box. The time it took to create the rescue disk was a little long but not excessive. There are few junk programs preloaded as compared to a previous HP laptop I bought. Battery life is very good. Very good value considering the price and performance compared with other laptops with similar features.
Pros: Fast, Long Battery Life, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: the two things i was looking for when i decided to buy a laptop was: portability (weight/size and battery life) along with gaming potential (dedicated GPU) this laptop excels in both areas. this laptop can play almost anything you can throw at it. i mainly play league of legends and it runs with high settings at 50fps with dips to 40fps during teamfights (can you say no lag?). some people might say that the screen is bad but i did not have a problem with it.
