Asus has been offering the UL20A thin and light laptop with an Intel CULV processor in a handful of configurations since late 2009. Now it looks like Asus is giving the Ul20A a minor update with the launch of the UL20AT. Notebook Review forum member David posted the spec sheets for a number of new and existing Asus notebooks found in the latest Asus World Magazine. The UL20AT was one that caught my eye, since I happen to own a UL20A-A1.
It’s tough to spot the differences between the UL20AT and the current models. The new notebook appears to be the same size and weight and it has the same 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. But it appears that the update will add support for up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM. Current models use DDR2 memory.
Aside from that, it looks like the UL20AT will be available with a choice of processor and hard drive options including a 1.2GHz Intel Celeron 743 or dual core SU2300 processor, a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 chip, or a 1.3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor. 250GB, 320GB, or 500GB hard drive options will be available. All models will ship with integrated GMA 4500MHD graphics.
Asus is also introducing a new UL30JT 13.3 inch thin and light with a choice of Core i5 or Core i7 chips.
