It started from the outside and continued until the inside, technical specifications and performance. UL30J enjoy a stylish design, looks good and enjoys a perfect finish. The predominant color is black and we can find both a strong case, but also the plastic around the keyboard and display. It is made of quality materials, a strong product, sturdy, yet very easy and weighing about 1.7Kg with 6 cell battery. I liked how it looks, that is the perfect finishing and how it was designed.
Keyboard and touchpad
Raising the cap, we find a chiclet type keyboard with large keys and well defined, and the touchpad is not separated, inserted in the case, which allows multi-touch gestures and powerful control of the cursor. If you happen to have problems with it, try a calibration before and are high chances that everything will be ok then. You can settle in very quickly with this keyboard and cursor keys.
Asus UL30J stays great in the chapter connectivity and ports. Has nothing in addition to standard configurations encountered in almost all models of laptops.
- On the left have VGA port, HDMI port and a USB 2.0 port.
- On the right are audio ports, card reader, 2 USB ports, RJ-45 network port and power port.
Mentioned that on the left are find the only ventilation system vents.
Related to multimedia, I can say that Asus UL30JT has a 0.3 MP webcam with microphone and two speakers. The sound is not exceptional, but for a 13.3-inch laptop sounds good.
The 13.3-inch LED display rather pleased me too. It is glare type and has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The screen is standard, not very innovative features and is glossy, which makes it difficult to use your laptop in strong light conditions. This problem however, we find all screens of this type, not only in this model. Matter than the work environment, the light source and laptop settings. Passing over this problem, the picture is really good, clear, pleasant colors and not tiring.
Asus UL30JT - Technical specifications
- Procesor i5-520UM Core – 1.07GHz
- Video GeForce GT310M and Intel GMA X4500 (Optimus technology)
- 4 GB DDR3 RAM
- 640GB HDD
We talked of external ports and connectivity, and now move on to more serious things - technical specifications and performance. As I said, UL30JT impressed me with its configuration. We must be very careful when buying a laptop. The first impression is made by the external appearance of portable and often takes hasty decisions without thinking at the configuration, range and other factors which may disturb us in the future.
Autonomy, silence and temperatures
As I said, Asus UL30JT enjoys an enviable autonomy, despite top configuration and its size. The 6-cell battery can provide a range of up to 5 hours, but may vary depending on usage and system settings. In normal usage (web browsing, office applications, music), Asus UL30JT lasted about 4 hours and 30 minutes. But can played movies and games full HD, and the autonomy decreased to about 3 hours, but is enough to watch a movie without problems.
We framed the Asus UL30JT in the business laptops. It has a sleek, sturdy, comprises high-quality materials, it is extremely easy - 1.7KG and has a thickness of 2.46 cm. To these we add the latest configuration and very good performance.
