Asus UX30, U20 CULV-books available in Taiwan

Written by Fudzilla staff

€683 and €537

Asus has been a bit slow to get on the CULV bandwagon, but its UX30 13-incher is a very impressive piece of kit, and we believe it's worth the wait.

It's somewhere halfway between MSI's X340 and Acer's Timeline 3810T, and it's a beauty. It's by no means cheap, and we were expecting it to retail at about €800 in Europe. However, an eagle eyed reader has spotted it listed with a Taiwanese retailer, and it's apparently already available at €683. This is actually pretty good value for money, as you get a SU3500 CPU, 3 gigs of memory and 500GB of storage. Sadly, we're still expecting it to end up quite a bit pricier in Europe and the States.

In case price is the issue, you can opt for the 12-inch U20, which is also available in Taiwan, but at a more recession friendly €535. Sadly, it ships with a Celeron 723 and weighs a rather uncomfortable 1.78kg. It's main selling points are 8 hours of battery life, advertised battery life that is, and an optical drive, which is quite an odd feature in this product class.

We're not sure about EU and US availability dates or prices and we can only hope we'll see similar prices once they show up.
