Asus UL30Jt Notebook with Core i7 and Turbo33 Technology

Asus UL30Jt Notebook with Core i7 and Turbo33 Technology
This may surprise a few of you, but I’m still using an ancient Dell notebook running on Windows XP as my primary computer. I’m clearly due for an upgrade so that I can finally lay this dinosaur down to rest. And I think I’ve found one of its most suitable replacements.

I’d really like to find something with a good build quality and a 13.3-inch screen, but I’d rather stick with the PC side of things rather than make the jump to a Mac. For this purpose, the Asus UL30Jt sounds like it could fit the bill to a tee.

On display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Asus UL30Jt notebook features a 13.3″ 16:9 slim-type LCD display, Intel Core i7-640UM/620UM processor, up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 640GB 7200rpm SATA HDD, and up to 12 hours of battery life, all in a package less than one-inch thick.

One of the more interesting features that seems to be infiltrating much of the Asus lineup is the combination graphics. You get an integrated Intel GMA HD processor, as well as discrete graphics from an NVIDIA GeForce 310M (1GB). The system will auto-switch between the two for battery life or performance as needed.

    Aye to that John!
    I think backlit keyboards are just a waste of battery life anyways.

    It’s a good thing that it doesn’t come with a backlit keyboard because they look really ugly. If people used their keyboards properly then you would know where all the keys are without having to look at them. Good for Asus making people learn how to actually type.
