Asusu2eviewopenShame on me. I just posted info on some comparable small and light notebooks the other day and forgot about the Asus U2E. It could be just as worthy of a purchase as a MacBook Air or Lenovo U110 IdeaBook, couldn’t it? AnandTech’s review of the leather-topped U2E should help answer that question. One thing that became clear to me if I were going to purchase the 1.06 GHz Core 2 Duo device: I’d surely opt for the 6- or 9-cell battery in lieu of the standard 3-cell. As I read it, the AnandTech folks were seeing the small 29 W/hr battery last less than an hour-and-a-half. On the plus side, this under-three-pound PC does offer an integrated optical drive for those that need it. Not bad for around $1,700.(via Small Laptops and Notebooks)

  1. You had me, until that part about $1700.

  2. Well, Sony TZ150, while slightly more expensive has an impressive battery life (11.1″ as well).

  3. Nate, keep in mind that these sort of ultraportables cost a pretty penny.

    I have a Vaio TZ130 myself and I probably would have bought this if I had waited.

    Its lower price than the TZ but has 3gb of ram (vs 2gb max in TZ), newer 965 chipset (945 in TZ), 2 year warranty and comes with a carrying case and two batteries.

    I haven’t seen a comparison of the U2E and TZ. There should be since they are just about the only 11.1″ notebooks on the market (well the U110 is coming soon)

    I do know the TZ beats the U2E in battery life and I bet in screen quality too, even though both are 11.1″ LED-backlit, Sony has some really nice screen tech.
