ASUS U30Jc Now Available on Amazon!

ASUS U30JC-A1 13.3-Inch Laptop (Silver)

The ASUS U30Jc I reviewed at CES 2010 is now finally available on Amazon for pre-order after appearing on some of the eBay sites earlier this month.  ASUS UL30Jt shouldn’t be too far away either it looks like.

The final specs for ASUS U30Jc-A1 will include a 2.26Ghz Intel Core i3-350M processor, Nvidia G310M graphics card with 512MB DDR3 memory, 4GB of DDR3 memory, WiFi B/G/N, 320GB hard drive, DVD, Windows 7 Home 64-bit, HDMI port, 0.3MP webcam, and an 8-cell 5600mAh battery which will yield 9.5 hours of battery life.

Comparing with the ASUS UL30Vt, which has been out for awhile now, I think the U30Jc might be a bit zippier with its Intel i3 processor while battery life will ultimately suffer.

I still like the ASUS UL30Jt, because it doesn’t come with a DVD drive (which I don’t need) and the slim-form factor makes it more portable but this is still a great laptop for the price of $899.

Price: $899 on Amazon

    the U is not built like the UL, it’s much heavier and thicker and has an optical drive.

    So do we expect a UL version to appear eventually, or what?

    I’m disappointed. Thinking I want the form and weight of the UL, but the speed of the U.

    What gives? Any idea if another one is in the pipeline and I should wait?

    Certainly I don’t want to get another five plus pounder to lug around. I am looking for the fastest, longest lifed notebook that is around.

    Do you know if the L version is waiting in the sidelines of Asia to come?

    Aye, scrambled my words and model designations, but I think you know what I mean. The U-J is bigger and heavier, the UL will be thinner and lighter with no built in optical drive.

    So I’m wanting a travel computer that is more robust than my netbook but with similar or better battery performance.

    Should I get the VT or wait for the JT? What gives?

    I would get the VT if you want longer battery life, I think JT will have less battery simply due to its faster processor which probably will consume more power. Either way, if you wait, you might get better deal on the VT (as price should drop when JT comes out). But if you need one now, I don’t see JT as a problem, it’s a great laptop that I use everyday now, super light.

    Jt if you want a slightly faster processor (for something like video editing), if you need longer battery life, get the Vt.
