ASUS UL30Vt-X1 Unboxing Video Review!

UPDATE: Complete Hands-on Review of the ASUS UL30Vt-x1 here!

Update: You can also get ASUS UL30Vt-A1 now, which is same thing as X1 except with 25% more battery power with a 5400maH battery.

That’s right, UPS just delivered the new ASUS UL30Vt-X1 and I am so excited!  I had it on pre-order 2 days ago then it was available for shipping yesterday on Amazon, then I got it today!


The front view, the ASUS UL30Vt-X1 feels really light and exactly how I imagined it would be.


Here’s a photo showing you how slim it is.  It ain’t as slim as the new Dell Adamo or the Macbook Air but with 12+ hours battery life and price tag of $799.99, I will take two of these UL30Vt-X1s, thank you very much.


Here’s another side view with external VGA, HDMI outputs, and 1 USB port.


All ASUS laptops/netbooks now come with multi-touch pad, which is great since you don’t need an external mouse as the two-finger scroll is really efficient (once you get good at it like me.).


SD card slot, microphone, speaker jack, 2 more USB ports, and ethernet jack.  Sorry, there’s no CD/DVD drive as this laptop is supposed to be ultra thin and lightweight.

I prefer not to have a CD/DVD drive anyways, they just add weight to your laptop.  Plus, you can always hook up an external CD drive or just use something like MagicCD for emulating CD roms.

The ASUS UL30Vt-X1 comes with 1.3Ghz Intel SU7300 Core 2 Duo Processor (which can be overclocked to 1.7Ghz using on-board ASUS power management software), 4GB of DD3 memory (upgradable to 8GB), 500GB of HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium, wireless 802.11b/g/n, 13.3″ HD 1366 x 768 resolution LCD, switchable Nvidia graphic adapters,bluetooth, and 12+ hours of battery life.

So far, on based testing with the power settings at its highest setting plus the Nvidia G210M in the works, the ASUS UL30Vt-X1 is doing quite well with HD streaming.

I should have a review of HD 1080P video rendering times, something I need for the CES 2010 Show.

My recommendation?  Get one of these ASUS UL30Vt-X1 if you need a laptop that does everything but can go for all day without recharging.

    Does this have the same “dimpled” trackpad as the Eee PC 1005HA “Seashell” netbook? How is it with HD video rendering?

    You need to recharge and discharge the battery a few times before you get the full use of it. Also use the Super Hybrid power saving mode to get 8 hours. Lower your screen too about 40%

    argh I was watching this fall well under $700 waiting to get it for my birthday, figuring it’ll drop even more when the jt comes out, and now amazon bumps it back up to $800, WTF? more expensive than I’d ever seen it, might as well get a jt for $50 more at this price, or is that the idea? Either way thats some messed up marketing, I for one can’t afford the $200 premium, and will be needing this for school in september and had my heart set on it. I’m very dissapointed AMAZON 🙁
