With the current trend of Netbooks and full service laptops, there is little space for CULV ultra thin laptops. Most of these ultra thin laptops will sacrifice a function or two to make the unit as thin as possible. Most of these units remove the optical drive and most of them sacrifice in quality.
It’s relieving to say, therefore, that the 13-inch Asus UL30A-A1 is a thin-and-light that we’d gladly carry around in our bag for a good long time to come. The Asus UL30A-A1 has a good frame and very good new Core 2 Duo CULV processor; it even has a good battery life. So it is the closest to a complete package for a sub-$1000 laptop that doesn’t resort to an Atom processor.
The Asus UL30A-A1 comes with 1.3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 Processor, 4GB, 1066MHz DDR3 Memory, 500GB 5,400rpm Hard drive Mobile, Intel GM45 Express Chipset, Intel GMA 4500MHD Graphics ,Windows Vista Premium Operating system.
