Marketing Information
High Definition Multimedia Entertainment

The ASUS UL30A is a highly capable multimedia entertainer while on-the-move. It features a 13.3-inch LED-backlit HD high definition display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, supported by an integrated Intel GMA 4500MHD integrated graphics processor for cinematic visual quality. It is further complemented by a pair of angled Altec Lansing high definition speakers which are 30% more powerful compared to those found on conventional notebooks. The angle of the speakers also allows audio to be 'bounced' upwards from any surface to provide better amplification, delivering a wider frequency range, which in turn produces lower pitches that allow users to hear every reverberation of the drums, as well asevery note in pitch perfect quality. Enhanced by SRS Premium Sound, they provide a virtual surround audio experience to the powerful speakers.
