Product Description

The ASUS UX30 is truly a object of beauty and style. Its exterior is not only shrouded in satin-brushed aluminum, but also cleverly conceals a wealth of connectivity ports in a slim and lightweight design that measures only 1.96cm in profile. Despite being slim and lightweight, the ASUS UX30 does not compromise on performance and user-centric features. It boasts an intuitive multi-touch touchpad that enables users to intuitively interact with their programs. Users can access a myriad of functions with motions such as sliding left and right, as well as up and down with two or three fingers simultaneously. It also features a chiclet keyboard, which provides users with wider gaps between keycaps to minimize errors. Finally, with ASUS IceCool Design, it boasts a palm-rest that stays cool for maximum comfort during periods of prolonged computing. The ASUS UX30 features a 13.3-inch WXGA LED LCD display which merges seamlessly with the lid to form a flushed surface that reflects contemporary styling and grace. An Intel GMA 4500MHD provides users with high definition visual enjoyment, while SRS Premium Sound brings surreal cinematic audio enjoyment to users wherever they go. ASUS notebooks come with ASUS’ 360 service program that includes a 2 year global warranty, one month zero bright dot guaranty, free two-way standard overnight shipping and twenty-four hour tech support seven days a week. Plus it comes with a FREE One Year Accidental Damage Warranty protecting your notebook from drops, fire, spills and surges.

I own both the UL30A-A2 and the UX30-A1. The UX is MUCH lighter than the UL and look so much better. Since all the ports are hidden, the laptop has a very clean look. What i love most about the UX is that the screen is flushed making it look very elegant. The screen brightness is the same as the UL. The UX is also thinner. Battery life is ok, not as great as on the UL but i don't mind since i bought this mainly because of the exterior. The brushed aluminum makes the laptop feels so much more expensive than it really is. One other thing, the hard drive and battery are not removable. They have been sealed by Asus so if having a removable battery is important to you, you should look at other models.

Simple personal feeling about this Asus UX30

The Good side

1. Good CPU speed, I'm a student using the laptop mainly for homework/study/web/movies/youtube. It's not a lighting speed one but I'm totally happy with it's performance --- no lag! I think the 4GB ram definitely help.

2. Super thin and sleek outlook and excellent built quality. Asus built the laptop with brushed aluminum on the top and high-end plastic on the bottom, which make it feels like you are holding a $1xxx latop :D,

3. Surprise how light the latop is, I can spin it with my finger! no kidding~ Also the power adapter is the smallest I've ever seen, the adapter is about the length of a lighter and 3 times of it's size and super light as well.

4. Crispy screen playing 1080p video smoothly, No problem using HDMI output on 56inches TV.

5. I think a lot of people would concern about the battery life, well, I can honestly tell you it's really not that bad, for normal web browsing it can last 4.5hrs using the battery saving mode, and don't be scared by hearing battery saving equal to low performance, in fact I just feel the same as the high performance mode except using dimmer screen brightness. The battery is in fact a high end POLYMER battery instead of standard one on other laptops, it's more reliable and has longer life.

6. Asus Express Gate installed. EG let you get on internet do most stuff without booting the windows, it's Linux based os customized for Asus laptop. As advertised get connected online and start browsing the web in 8 Sec (tested, takes 6sec! ^^)

When I got the laptop I was very happy. I've only had it for two days, but already the right mouse button on the pad has lost its "click," very annoying since I JUST got it. It's not such a big deal since it still works, but it's the reason I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

Battery life is so-so, but it's a three cell battery so I guess I can't expect much, it's not horrible, but don't stray too far from an outlet. Right now, not doing anything on the laptop and on some serious battery saving options, I have a little over 5 hours of juice. If you're surfing the web, or doing anything else you can expect about 4 to 4.5 hours on a full charge.

The keyboard is great! I love typing on it, there's no flex and it feels like quality. I have medium sized hands and it's perfect for me.

It should be noted that the top of the laptop is definitely brushed aluminum and the bottom is definitely plastic. I had read some reviews (maybe they had pre-production models?) where they said the top and bottom were metal. This is not the case. The laptop weighs in at just over 3 pounds 5 ounces in case anyone was wondering.

The laptop looks great and I've already gotten a few compliments on it. It boots up pretty quickly and programs load pretty fast. It doesn't come loaded with a bunch of crap software either. I thought I was going to have to format and start clean, but it only came with some software from asus which is convenient for the laptop and I don't feel the need to delete. It came with a free trail of some sort of virus detector (not Mcaffee, thank god) which was easy enough to remove.

Finger prints will be visible on the lid if you're eating french fries and have really greasy fingers. Otherwise the lid tends to stay pretty clean!
