    - Keyboard The keyboard is definitely suitable for people who type a lot, provided you can see out over the key-base which gives way noticeably .

  • Rating Unavailable

    - The keyboard is comfortable to type on, with excellent support to resist any flexing.


  • - HP’s effort fell flat, simply offering the wrong mix of performance and battery life.
    - Vertical viewing is much more limited, and tipping the screen slightly forward makes the picture look washed out much more readily than tipping it slightly back.
    - The brushed aluminum casing is no-nonsense sleek.


  • The bottom line: The design is revolutionary, but Apple's MacBook Air will appeal to a smaller, more specialized audience than the standard MacBook, thanks to a stripped-down set of connections and features.


  • The Apple MacBook Air (11-inch) is the lightest, smallest laptop in Apple's inventory, but you'll have to give up certain luxuries and pay a hefty price for it.


  • - More important, this machine never keeps you waiting, thanks to the way it uses flash memory.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - As is common with glossy screens, colors and contrast are quite good and both images and video "pop" off the screen.
    - Speaker performance is good despite the dime-sized stereo speakers located above the keyboard.
    - The keyboard backlighting is nice and even and helps you see what you're typing in a dark classroom.


  • - A little hefty for its size • Battery runs short due to powerful hardware.


  • - It’s easily small enough to take to work with you each day, yet provides outstanding office and multimedia performance.


  • - The touchpad has built-in multitouch gestures that are useful when scrolling and panning through Web pages.
    - Battery life is phenomenal.

    - Our prototype looked very high-end, elegant and timeless  with the black finish and the black display lid of brushed aluminum .
    - The Intel GMA 4500M HD chip set gives a good performance in the office and the Nvidia GeForce G 210M graphic with a core rate of 625 MHz is helpful in multimedia routine.


  • - Keyboard and Touchpad The UL80Vt’s island style keyboard is spacious, has its keys in all the proper positions, and doesn’t flex at all.
    - Sound quality from the front-mounted speakers was quite good and loud, both when watching videos and listening to music.


  • - The screen gets adequately bright for working outdoors, text and graphics are sharply rendered, and color is very good.
    - The keyboard is extremely comfortable to use with good response and no flex while typing.

  • Rating Unavailable

    - The highest volume settings are loud enough to fill an office with sound for a presentation, but the audio sounds distorted at the highest volumes.
    - The touchpad is very responsive to my touch with a scroll zone on the right side that works exactly as it should.
    - Overall the keyboard layout is extremely nice for a budget 13-inch laptop.


  • - The machine is nice and light, but I was surprised when I tested the battery and found out that it run for only three hours with all the wireless communications and blue tooth switched off and no applications are running.
    - Even the ProBook 5310m's multimedia performance was strong.
    - The machine's LED-backlit 13.3-inch screen looks terrific, with plenty of brightness and rich color reproduction.
