The U30Jc is a feature packed 13.3'' notebook from ASUS. Intel's Core i3 processor and Nvidia's Optimus Technology provides a balance of performance and battery life on the go. Advertised with 9.5 hours of battery life the U30Jc is more than just another portable notebook; with HDMI, high definition LED screen, and Altec Lansing speakers it doubles up as a multimedia notebook. NVIDIA's Optimus Technology will automatically switch between the GeForce graphics card and the integrated Intel graphics depending on your applications to conserve battery life and to provide performance when you need it. At 4.81lbs it is above the average weight of similar notebooks, but unlike other 13.3'' the UC30Jc comes with an 8 cell battery. The U30Jc also come in a brushed metal finish along with EPEAT and Energy Star certifications.
