The Usability Asus U30Jc XA1

Keyboard is great sized and chiclet keys are much nicer than the other past series laptops. As with any laptop keyboard it will take some adjustment for specific keys such as the right shift key being smaller, but overall they keyboard is very well designed.

Battery Life makes this category a HUGE winner, there’s just no beating it, especially if you need it for overseas flights or other occasions that require a long time between plug-ins. And when you require more processing power from the video card, just switch over the Optimus graphics and let her rip!

Plugs & Ports are positioned ok, they are overall very usable, but this isn’t a desktop replacement laptop, so don’t expect it to act like one that is made to sit on your desk all day long. If you have a ton of things plugged in they will all stream out the sides and get in the way likely. Luckily it has the ability which is really nice in case you need that HDMI out to show pictures during your trip, or to burn a DVD quick for a friend.
