My System Specs

Default

It depends on the model. Making a choice solely dependent on the manufacturer isn't the best way to approach purchasing a laptop. For example, I had an Asus UL30A for a couple of days, and while the battery life, aluminum chassis and design were nice, the keyboard had some pretty bad flex, the screen was worse than average for similar notebooks, and the rocker style mouse and trackpad were absolutely horrid. My Lenovo U450p, on the other hand, is an absolute delight to use, even though its 6-cell battery only offers half the life of the UL30A (still around 5 hours, which is good enough for me).
