Asus Notebook UL80J-BBK5

The Intel inside is the Core i3 (Model: 330UM).  This is different from the prevalent 330M.  This processor is a dual-core CPU running at 1.2GHz.  It supports 4 processing threads and has 3MB of Intel Smart Cache. It was built using a 32nm process and uses 18W.  By comparison the i3-330M runs at 2.1GHz but uses 35W. The system comes with 4GB of DDR3 memory and can support up to 8GB.

The display is a 14″ LED-backlit LCD high-definition widescreen display with 1366 x 768 resolution. The screen is driven by an NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics with Optimus Technology and 1GB video memory. That dedicated memory means fewer slow downs during graphically intensive tasks.

For storage the system comes with a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive that runs at 5400RPM.  Plenty big enough, but it’d be nice to see a faster 7200RPM drive in there.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support. For memory cards you get a 5-in-1 media reader which supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, xD-Picture Card, Memory Stick and Memory Stick Plus formats.

In the networking area this notebook comes with built-in 10/100/1000 Fast Ethernet LAN through the RJ-45 port.  The wireless adapter supports 802.11 b/g/n for all your wifi surfing.  This laptop does not come with a modem or Bluetooth support. Other ports on this notebook are 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, 1VGA port, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in jack.

The notebook comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Adobe Reader 9 and more.

The Lithium ion battery provides up to 5 hours and 24 minutes of battery life which is good for a laptop of this size.  That’s mostly because of the low power processor in this notebook. It measures 9.5″ x 13″ x 1.1″ (nice and thin) and weighs 4.4 pounds.  This is a good portable machine.

Other features include a 0.3 megapixel webcam with integrated microphone.  This enables facial recognition technology as an added security layer.  It includes internal speakers and Realtek audio.

You can find the Asus Notebook UL80J-BBK5 for around $700.
