U30Jc: The Bundle And A Closer Look
Included with the ASUS U30Jc are the power cord, cable tie, user’s manual, Express Gate manual, warranty card (2 year global warranty, 1 year battery warranty and 30 day zero bright dot LCD warranty), Windows 7 Home Premium Recovery Disc, Driver Disc, and Power2Go 6.0. The bundle is fairly typical of what comes with many laptops.
A Closer Look
This is a top down view of the laptop. The brushed aluminum is extremely resistant to finger printing and it looks great!
Here we have a shot of the left side of the keyboard. This gives you a good idea of the spacing and height of the keys. The keyboard itself is nice with good spacing. The only complaint is that at low brightness levels in low light it can be a little difficult to type.
This is a close up of the touchpad. It works fantastically, extremely smooth and tracks touch very well, almost too well at times!
This is the 8 cell battery removed. The length of the battery keeps it from weighing down one side, overall a well thought design.
We removed the 320GB drive to see what brand it was, our particular sample was from Hitachi, to be exact it’s the HTS545032B9A300.
On the bottom of the notebook we removed the access panels to show just how easy it is to upgrade/replace the hard drive and memory.
On the left side of the notebook we have the VGA, HDMI, two USB ports, and the MIC & Headphone jacks.
And on the right side we have the DVD-RW optical drive, USB slot, RJ45 port, and the power connector.
Overall I liked the layout of the connectors on this notebook. I never ran into a problem where a flash drive interfered with the power cord or inserting an optical disk.
