ASUS debuts business-minded PL30JT laptop

If there's one company that goes all out at CeBIT each year, its ASUS, as evidenced by the fact that we're still catching up with new products from the company the week after CeBIT. This one slipped under our radar at the show, but the folks at Softpedia managed to get a bit of hands-on time with the company's new PL30JT model, which looks more than a little like ASUS' previously announced UL30 series. The big news with this one is the inclusion of NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics with Optimus technology, which is complemented by a Core i5-520UM processor, a 13.3-inch 1,336 x 768 display, up to 8GB of RAM, a max 640GB hard drive, and ASUS' own Turbo33 technology, which promises to "enhance performance by up to 33%." No word on a price or release date just yet, but this wasn't one of the models promised in ASUS' initial batch of Optimus-enabled laptops.
