£349 delivered, with option for 5% Quidco - Possibly £331.55 for a laptop that's been posted as a bargain for ~£400!

My first post - so be gentle...


Description from the site:
Hand picked for its stamina, the ASUS UL30A boasts a massive 9 hour battery life!

This slender Windows® 7 laptop takes efficiency to the next level with its Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Intel® Celeron Dual Core processor.

UL30As performance is enhanced by a generous 3GB RAM and Asus exclusive GraphiX Boost technology, which offers seamless multitasking support.

Pop the UL30A into your briefcase or backpack and take it with you on long journeys at just 1.7kg in weight and less than 1 inch thick this is one laptop that wont weigh you down.

Discover a more user-friendly interface. The brand new Windows® 7 Home Premium operating system is easy to get to grips with, adept at performance management and can be personalised with your own unique settings.

Designed with users in mind, the Asus UL30A features a multi-gesture touchpad which supports pinch-to-zoom and allows you to navigate web pages by sliding your finger across the pad!

Watch TV, view presentations or take in a blockbuster movie while on the train or in the park! UL30As 13.3 inch TFT screen is surprisingly large for such a compact machine, and the integrated Altec Lansing® speakers are enhanced by SRS Premium Sound technology for intense music playback.

With Wi-Fi enabling, three USB ports and a massive 320GB hard drive big enough to store over 100,000 photos; the Asus UL30A is one of the most well-equipped ULV laptops on the market.

Normally the Asus UL30A has the intel SU7300 core 2 duo processor - this one has the intel SU2300 celeron.

The clock speed of the Celeron is about 8% slower, it has a third the cache, and costs about 50% of the price of the SU7300 while using the same power. Although the clock speed is 8% slower - the loss of cache and processor design will make a far greater difference than this.

If you look a bit closer it says; Intel Celeron Dual Core SU2300.
It’s 1.2GHz 10W - http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=42779&code=SU2300

CNET Review

September 30, 2009

The Good: Strong battery life; reasonable price; slim design.

The Bad: Some keyboard flex; touchy touch pad; feels a bit cheap.

The Bottom Line: If you're in the market for an affordable thin-and-light, the Asus UL30A-A1 provides great value and a solid Core 2 Duo CULV processor in an attractive package.

Most websites reviewing this laptop are 8 out of 10 or HIGHER so yes, sounds like a decent machine

no its the opposite,you will find 13" screens usually carry a premium price over 15" models so actually having the smaller screen at this price will be considered a bonus by many:thumbsup:

It was hot last month and its still hot.
#14
CPU is a dual core, core 2 duo based ultra low voltage celeron, it's MUCH faster than atom, capable of playing high def content and uses a measly 10w
#15
Bought this a few months back. Really pleased with it. So much better than a netbook for not much more. I wrote up my thoughts on Tech Loving:

Some jokers are trying to flog these on auction sites for £575! Great deal.

After having my previous laptop burgled I got this laptop.
it's been the most amazing laptop so far.
it's beautifully finished, very slim for a 13 inch laptop with its specs.
battery lasts forever.

computer hasn't faulted at all so far even though i'm known to stretch the laptops limits with a ton of multi tasking. The Charger is also small so its actually portable.

2 downsides

first, the touchpad buttons (the ones you click) is a bit *****, it's just one bar going across so you have to press the left or the right side of it. if you sort of press the middle it won't get pressed with is annoying and it's slightly loud.

second, I bought this for 580 pounds when it first got releaased.
i'm going to be so annoyed that some of you are able to pick this up for 60% of what i paid for!

but for the HUKD community's sake, I should be happy that everyone gets to receive such bargain!
#18
I bought one (and using it now) from last time it was mentioned here !

I agree with the above, keyboard does seem a bit bendy but it works great and looks the part

Good wifi, sound, screen and quick enough for my daily tasks, and the battery is awesome - 10 hours+ with wifi on!

It got delivered in super quick time (think it was Citylink) and I got it tracked through Quidco £17.45 off

Really happy and would recommend to anyone as this is a great price for a quality bit of kit :thumbsup:
#19
Seriously looking into this

I might be able to get further discount on this (20%)

Wont be missing out (I Hope)

Excellent post

Would buy this if only it had a CD/DVD drive.

You won't get anything as small , light and cheap with a CD/DVD drive. I've only used a CD once with mine (love it) and I did that by sticking it in another machine and sharing it over the network to install Office. Everything else has been a download, and if I used OpenOffice, I'd have downloaded that.

I bought a Samsung USB Powered DVD Writer from Amazon for £35 ish and never used it as you don't really need one nowadays - use shared network CD drives or transfer to stick and write from another PC

Due to the slimness of the thing it's hard-pushed to fit a DVD drive in there - Mac's do it but they're at least double the price :w00t:

Not really. The ones on the bay are for higher spec models. I guess it depends if you are happy with the spec that comes with the CPW version. If so, then it is a bargain.
#25


Resist for what ?

This isn't about processor power - it's a combination of speed, slimness and above all battery life!
#26
Seems to be various flavurs of the UL30 around going by reviews etc. Anyone know If this hass the 64 bit Windows, 1000Mb ethernet and 802.11n WiFi?

Mine from CPW came with 64 Bit Windows and 802.11n (but I think only single aerial, so it tops out at 65Mb IIRC) 100Mbit ethernet though I think
#30
Correct - 1 Aerial but all you do is remove the HDD cover (3 screws) and install another aerial to get extra coverage
#31
There's a good reason both the OP and CPW have hid the CPU: Intel SU7300

Hasn't this been done before...

Bought this from the lasp thread- massively pleased with it. Only -ve is the slightly annoying tracker pad

Except it is even worse than that. The processor is actually the Intel Celeron Dual Core SU2300 which comes even closer to the bottom of the table you linked to.

Still a good deal, just don't expect games playing on it.

You just don't get it do you? It's a thin and light ULV notebook, designed to excell at being ultra portable in both weight, size and battery life!
#36
As far as 13.3" notebooks go I don't think anything else comes close to the bang for buck you get with this deal. Quidco tracked within a couple of hours at £17.45.

Even though it's not the fastest processor it has managed to run all the apps I normally use on my desktop with no problems at all inc watching movies or streaming youtube HD and the battery lasts for a good 9 hours with heavy wifi browsing. :thumbsup:

I like my laptop but the battery life is pathetic like 1hour or less on highest setting!

Regardless, it's still a celron and wouldn't pay that for a celron.

Looking for something like this myself. Can't decide between the Asus or the Toshiba posted here. Have been a long time Toshiba fan due to their stunning reliability.

Any comments on spec comparison other than the obvious HD size? :thumbsup:
