ASUS adds UL30 version with dedicated graphics

ASUS UL30Vt mixes CULV, GeForce G 210M

ASUS has quietly staked out a claim to the fastest CULV-based ultraportable by adding the UL30Vt to its stable. The system takes the familiar 13.3-inch display and 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo of the original version but adds a GeForce G 210M. The gesture lets the under 1-inch thick PC handle HD video and some modern 3D but includes a switchable graphics system that optionally reverts to the more miserly Intel GMA 4500 graphics when the system is running on battery power.

The Vt continues to bring a few unique features to the CULV field, including an aluminum shell, a reported 12-hour battery life and a turbo feature that overclocks the system to run as much as 33 percent faster than it does in normal use. As with most ASUS systems, exact configurations vary but can hold as much as 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive.

Pricing isn't known but is likely to sit closer to $800.
