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
