ASUS UL30A-A2 is a great little machine, one of the best laptops that I’ve owned (and I’ve owned a ton). Great build quality, very sturdy. Performance is better than I expected for a 1.3GHz machine. As has been said, it’s not a powerhouse but it’s far more powerful than my netbook that has the 1.6GHz Atom CPU. Great battery life. I haven’t fully tested the total length but 10 hours of basic use seems realistic based on what I’m seeing. The screen is awesome. The AC adapter is small and light, doesn’t add much bulk in my bag. The keyboard is great. I’m 6’4″ and have big hands and have no problems with the keyboard. The trackpad is mediocre and is really the only thing that I’m even slghtly disappointed with. It’s sexy! It draws attention and people ask about it when I use it in public places. All and all I am very happy with the ASUS UL30A-A2.
