ASUS U6S ultraportable gets reviewed


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."
