Asus just dropped the new UL Series of laptops with a 1.3GHz dual-core processor that is a Intel Consumer Ultra Low Voltage processor. Why is that good news? Increased battery life — Asus is claiming up to 12 hours of battery life in their new UL series. While battery life hardly ever matches manufacturer’s claims, a battery at 1/2 that life is still pretty good.
The UL Series also is thin and light at under 1 inch thick and weighs 3 pounds in a brushed aluminum chassis. Asus also threw in the ability to switch between an integrated graphics card and a dedicated one to keep battery life up. Unfortunately, Asus did not release the price and lists the availability as “soon.”
