1101ha ul30a

The Asus Eee PC 1101HA is an 11.6 inch laptop with an Intel Atom Z520 processor, while the Asus UL30A has a 13.3 inch display and an Intel Core 2 Solo processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. The UL30A is clearly the more powerful of the two, and it’s also larger and heavier, although at 3.3 pounds, it’s still relatively light for a full sized laptop. But more importantly, the UL30A’s specs are nearly identical to those of the UL20A, which has an 11.6 inch display and should be about the same size as the Asus Eee PC 1101HA.

Unfortunately, Asus is pushing the UL30A a bit harder right now. For instance, you can already pre-order that model from Amazon for under $700, while the UL20A is nowhere to be seen. If you can’t wait for the 11.6 inch version to hit the streets, Netbook Live has a photo shoot out comparing the 11.6 inch Eee PC 1101HA to the 13.3 inch Asus UL30A. It should give you a good idea of just how much physical difference those few inches make.

  1. ASUS have been getting really on the cutting edge with laptops, for real. The other day I stumbled across this offer — you get a FREE ASUS BAMBOO LAPTOP, for filling out this form! follow the link!

  2. My source says the UL20A would also be available in the next month or two. So hopefully I’ll be able to come with more info about it pretty soon.

    Also, i have to correct you on something: the UL30A weighs 3.6 pounds and not 4.6 😛 Heck, it wouldn’t have been an ultra-portable if it were that heavy :))

    Also, the UL20A will come with a 12.1″ screen, not an 11.6 inch as you say.

    1. My bad. I was looking at the weights for the UL50A laptops when I wrote this. The actual weight is 1.5KG or about 3.3 pounds.

    2. Do your sources have prices for the UL20A? I like the dual core UL20A, but if it is priced like the dual core UL30A ($749/$799 at amazon), then the Acer 1410t seems like it will be a much better value.
