      Ultra-portable All-day Computing

      The ASUS UL30A is designed specifically for individuals who desire an all-day computing companion, minus the bulk and weight of a conventional notebook. It features an impressive 12-hours* battery life, thanks to the ASUS Power4Gear, which facilitates the deployment and usage of power according to the users’ preferences in relation to the specific tasks that they need to perform. It also provides users with the option to turn off hardware devices to conserve even more energy, and works in conjunction with an Intel® Core™2 Duo CULV processor for maximum energy efficiency. The ASUS UL30A is shrouded in a robust brushed aluminum lid which not only looks magnificent, but also helps in maintaining its stylish exterior day after day.

      High Definition Multimedia Entertainment

      The ASUS UL30A is a highly capable multimedia entertainer while on-the-move. It features a 13.3-inch LED-backlit HD high definition display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, supported by an integrated Intel® GMA 4500MHD integrated graphics processor for cinematic visual quality. It is further complemented by a pair of angled Altec Lansing® high definition speakers which are 30% more powerful compared to those found on conventional notebooks. The angle of the speakers also allows audio to be ‘bounced’ upwards from any surface to provide better amplification, delivering a wider frequency range, which in turn produces lower pitches that allow users to hear every reverberation of the drums, as well asevery note in pitch perfect quality. Enhanced by SRS Premium Sound™, they provide a virtual surround audio experience to the powerful speakers.
