Asus UX30 thin and light notebook previewed
Good looking, but pricey
You might recall Asustek's UX30 CULV-based thin and light 13-incher, showcased at Computex. It's a good looking machine, and now we're starting to see some early previews.
TechDigest has done a brief preview of the UX30, and now we like it even more. The sleek design is eyecatching. It is under 2cm thick and with brushed aluminuim in abundance, it just looks classy. Some connectors are hidden under a plastic flap, to streamline the gently curved sides.
Unfortunately, the good looks and materials come at a price, a high price. Once it hits retail in September, at £999 it could be the priciest CULV-based notebook on the market. You can check out the preview here.
In case you can't wait that long, you could consider the UX50, a 15.6-inch model based on Intel's SU3500 CPU. It packs Geforce G105M discrete graphics with 512MB of memory, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive and costs just under €900.
