ASUS certainly got our attention with its ultraportable U6S laptop, and it looks like it piqued the interest of the folks at HotHardware as well, who've now turned out a full review of the diminutive, leather-bound system. While they expectedly found a few shortcomings with laptop -- namely, lackluster battery life (even for an ultraportable) -- they found a lot more to like about it, including "excellent" performance, plenty of features (including HSDPA), low heat and noise, an always-welcome LED display, and "cool leather palm rests," although that last bit is certainly a matter of taste.Best of all, that all comes at a relatively reasonable $1,650 price tag, which leads HotHardware to declare the U6S "one of the best values in the luxury notebook niche."
