Asus UL20 UnLimited Series
Asus just announced a number of CULV notebooks with varying sizes from 12.1 to 15.6 inches — all thin and light, and promises up to 12 hours of battery life. The 12.1″ Asus UL20 got some pretty nice specs.
This is not a netbook series so we can’t expect it to be as affordable yet it’s got a number of nice netbook-like features.

Weighs 1.5kg or about 3.3lbs and just under 1-inch thin (25.1mm or 0.98 inches). Some of the models have both a discrete and integrated graphics so switching between the two could save battery. The Power4Gear feature allows for turning off some hardware devices to conserve power. There’s no optical drive included and I’m not particularly convinced with the 12-hour battery life Asus is claiming.
