Asus U20A is sexy and expensive




Asus has come up with its very own ultra-low voltage and slim notebook line which practically goes head to head with the Acer Timeline, HP Pavillion DV2 and the Gateway LT series we’ve seen earlier. Of particular interest is the 12.1″ Asus U20A notebook which is already available at PC Bodega.

At first glance, the design looks like a bigger Asus Eee PC Seashell edition. It’s not really a netbook but falls under the ultra-mobile notebook category.

    nice! ang mahal lang. parang nde practical. pero 8hrs.. hmn .. how long kaya charging nyan? siguro nga it’s well worth it kse tipid sa electricity consumption sa bahay. all you have to do is charge it in your office then use it at home. so yung matitipid mo para sa electricity bill ang pambabayad mo sa credit card na ginamit mong pambili dito. :D

    I wish they could make it lighter. But the 8.5 hour battery life does make it interesting.

    But now he is using it for games like DOTA tournaments and such.

    It’s not the U20 on the picture. I think it’s the UX50. This is the U20:
