ASUS UL30VT-X1K Thin and Light 13.3-Inch Laptop With Kindle for PC – A Review

If you are looking for a laptop with the power of a desktop and the portability of a phone at a great price, the ASUS UL30VT-X1K may be the laptop that you should purchase right now. Plus, it comes with “Kindle-ability”.

As someone who reviews laptops for a living, I will give you one of the biggest selling points of this computer right from the start. I am writing this review on an ASUS laptop.

Why do I use an ASUS laptop when my choices of laptops  hp ryzen 3 5300u are endless? Well, laptops all have many things in common but this laptop has something that makes it stand out above all others: battery life. I can take my ASUS laptop anywhere and it seemingly lasts forever.

The specifications state that this laptop lasts for up to 11 hours. I can tell you that I have used it for 10 hours in one sitting and the battery kept whirring away.

This single factor is what has skyrocketed ASUS to the top of the list of best selling laptops. I am not sure when other manufacturers will realize that this is one of the determining factors when people are choosing a laptop.

However, the ASUS UL30VT-X1K has much more than long battery life. It matches or exceeds the competition in all other arenas as well.

The UL30VT-X1K comes equipped with an Intel dual-core processor, 4GB of memory (which is more than most of its competitors), and a 500GB hard drive. And, at just under 4 pounds, it is nearly as portable as any top rated netbook that you will find on the market.

Now, many people get excited when they see that this laptop is advertised “with Kindle for PC”. This excitement stems from the fact that people think that this laptop will come pre-bundled with an Amazon Kindle. This, however, is not the case. “Kindle for PC” does not mean that this ASUS laptop comes with an Amazon Kindle. Kindle for PC enables you to download and read Kindle books on your laptop.

Kindle books look great on the 13.3-inch 16:9 ratio High Definition display of this ASUS model. The picture is incredibly sharp and much larger than any Kindle you will find. Plus, with the portability of this model, it’s easy to carry your laptop with you and read any book that you want.

The portability of this ASUS does not prevent it from being used as a high-powered desktop. With a built-in HDMI port, you can connect laptop to TV in a snap by simply plugging a standard HDMI cable into your laptop and putting the other end in your LCD TV. I use my ASUS to watch movies on my 52-inch LCD TV and the quality is outstanding.

In summary, this is a high-powered machine with longer lasting batteries than you will find anywhere. In my opinion, it is one of the best laptop buys on the market today. That is why I used it to write this review.
