Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Good performance and good value for money
Bad points:
In terms of design, the slightest of knocks to the outer casing caused screen damage which effectively rendered the laptop useless unless further money spent on expensive repair.

david, kilsyth General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Perfect size - more readable than a netbook and more portable than a regular 15.6" laptop.
Combined with great battery performance, overall highly recommended.
Bad points:
Very glossy finish picks up fingerprints etc very easily. Not a computing powerhouse, but fine for surfing/Word/Photoshop.

Manufacturer's Description

UL30A. Stunningly Light, Powerfully Beautiful. The new ASUS UL30A is a harmonious blend of form and function. Powered by an Intel® Core™2 Duo ultra-low voltage processor, it boasts an impressive 12-hours* battery life for all-day computing, user-centric features such as multi-gesture touchpad and impressive multimedia entertainment with Altec Lansing® and SRS Premium Sound™. These features can be found in an ultra-light notebook that is generously cloaked in brushed aluminum and measuring less than 1-inch in profile. Ultra-portable All-day Computing. The ASUS UL30A is designed specifically for individuals who desire an all-day computing companion, minus the bulk and weight of a conventional notebook. It features an impressive 12-hours* battery life, thanks to the ASUS Power4Gear, which facilitates the deployment and usage of power according to the users’ preferences in relation to the specific tasks that they need to perform. It also provides users with the option to turn off hardware devices to conserve even more energy, and works in conjunction with an Intel® Core™2 Duo CULV processor for maximum energy efficiency. The ASUS UL30A is shrouded in a robust brushed aluminum lid which not only looks magnificent, but also helps in maintaining its stylish exterior day after day. High Definition Multimedia Entertainment. The ASUS UL30A is a highly capable multimedia entertainer while on-the-move. It features a 13.3-inch LED-backlit HD high definition display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, supported by an integrated Intel® GMA 4500MHD integrated graphics processor for cinematic visual quality. It is further complemented by a pair of angled Altec Lansing® high definition speakers which are 30% more powerful compared to those found on conventional notebooks. The angle of the speakers also allows audio to be ‘bounced’ upwards from any surface to provide better amplification, delivering a wider frequency range, which in turn produces lower pitches that allow users to hear every reverberation of the drums, as well asevery note in pitch perfect quality. Enhanced by SRS Premium Sound™, they provide a virtual surround audio experience to the powerful speakers. Intuitive Design with Users in Mind

Not only is the ASUS UL30A a stylish and ultra-portable notebook for everyday use, it is also one that is designed with users in mind. It features a multi-gesture touchpad, which allows users to intuitively zoom in or out of pictures via pinching, or navigate up and down pages by sliding their finger.
