Pretty cool so far -- popped Windows 7/64 on it, it was a pain to download all the 7/64 drivers individually from their site, though at least they were there.

Problem is -- no bluetooth! I chose this based on the Asus page for the product and then amazon gives like 5 bullet points of specs. I never thought a dual core, 4 gig, high end ulv would come without bluetooth! It took me a good 2 hours troubleshooting why my device won't connect to figure it out!

Also, I didn't receive the mouse and case that was advertised. Not sure what the story is with that, it says only 1 package to be delivered...

Oh, i ordered at 6pm and got the next day and it was in my hands 18 hours later. Gotta love that.

I've had this laptop for about a week now and overall I'm very satisfied. I was considering this one, the ACER 3810 and the ASUS UL30A-A1. For about $170 less than the ACER and $100 less than the ASUS UL30A-A1, you get the same level of CPU performance and sacrifice on the drive size and Bluetooth (if you do your homework, you'll see that on the ASUS website, the X3 model does not have Bluetooth whilet the A1 one does). I bought a Cirago USB adapter off of Amazon for about $25 for the bluetooth functionality. I also bought the Samsung external USB optical drive, Microsoft Bluetooth mouse and a Case Logic Neoprene sleeve (13 inch in black). All work very well togther and the sleeve fits perfectly.

Relative to the keyboard, it's fine - not the best and not the worst. The trackpad issues was noted on some on-line magazine reviews and altogether it shouldn't be an issue after usng it for a while. As for other reviews identifying a "con" for a lack of an optical drive, my comment is - if you were buying this laptop for it's price, wright and thickness, isn't the lack of an optical drive a "Pro"?

Relative to the battery performance, if you leave it in high performance, the battery life will be abount half the advertised life which is still fantastic (as I type, the battery is 66% charged with 4 hours, 58 minutes remaining). Again, I rely on on-line magazine's review of a product and many view the battey life as extremely good testing at over 8 hours and certainly better than the ACER.

I am dissappointed with Amazon over the missing case and mouse but I am overlooking that in my rating of the product. Also, I did use 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime and the computer was delivered the next day.

I used to have Toshiba Qosmio which is high end version of Toshiba
It had great feature and I loved its great performance overall
but it was just too heavy to carry around and gets pretty hot in the bottom
and battery life got very short at the end. So I didn't want to carry around very much

I needed something fast because I don't want my laptop skipping or lagging while I watching high resolution movies or doing multitasking. So, net book was got out of my choice at first.
I started comparing and benchmarking laptops that are small and light without DVD-ROM because I never used it and really don't want it on my laptop. This time I am pretty sure what I really want.
Among these three laptops Lenovo Idea Pad U350, Acer 3810T, and Asus UL30a. Finally, I made up my on Asus ul30a-X3 because I think it has the best value in many categories out of these three laptops.

"Lenovo IdeaPad U350 and the MSI X340, we liked the overall performance on the UL30A-A1 better. And as far as its closest competitor goes, the Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T, the Asus UL30A-A1 had equal or better performance, better battery life, and costs $100 less than the 3810T did at launch. This is a thin-and-light that does everything we had hoped thin-and-lights would do, and it costs nowhere near what a MacBook Air or a Dell Adamo does."
from cnet review

It has a big enough screen for watching movies and spacious keyboard area for typing work. Battery life is very long up to 11hr or even longer because I am not only using this all day along. So when I am not using this, it automatically goes to sleep mode. In this way it saves batter life and can use this pretty much all day without the cord. Temperature and noise both are very low.

Pros
- Thin and light, hence the portability
- It doesn't heat up like other laptops
- So far, it's feels like a fast computer to me
- I personally like the keyboard
- At least 8 hours battery life with normal usage

Cons
- No optical drive (but you should be aware of this before purchasing)
- the touch pad does annoy me because it doesn't have borders and I do end up clicking on things with my wrist without knowing (I plan on using a mouse and locking the touch pad, so it's not a big deal)
- The package is missing a mouse and carry bag (Amazon did a great job compensating for this! 20% off!)
