The Asus UL30A is another example of Intel's CULV mobile PC; not quite a full laptop but more than a netbook. The screen is 13.3", the keyboard is 'chiclet' style, with well spaced out keys emerging from underneath the metallic body of the CULV and the trackpad is a series of holes punched into the body below the keyboard. Inside you will find a a Core 2 Duo at 1.3 GHz, Intel's X4500MHD IGP, 4 GB of DDR3 and an installation of the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium.

The ASUS K42F is a 14" 1366x768 notebook with an Intel Core i5 540M powering it and comes with some nice features, like a Blu-Ray drive. Legit Reviews contrasts it with an HP Pavilion DV4-1555dx
which is powered by a C2D P8700. Between the HyperThreading, Turbo Mode and the on die Intel HD graphics, they saw a 40-50% performance increase from the older HP system. Also worth noting is the battery life; you might expect the older and slower machine to come out on top but again it is left behind the new Arrandale machine.

There is something a little unusual about Lenovo's new X100e laptop; inside you will find a single core Athlon Neo MV40 CPU, not an Intel Atom. Even though it retains the smaller size of the X series, it still has a 11.6" 1366 x 768 display, along with 4GB of RAM, a Realtek 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and a 5200RPM HDD of 160GB to 320GB. The 6 cell battery does interfere with the style of the notebook so you will have to decide between keeping the sleek lines or longer battery life.

Lenovo is taking the wraps off a unique mobile product at CES. It is called the IdeaPad U1 (not to be confused with the Irish rock band) and is being dubbed as "hybrid PC". The U1 is actually two computers in a single form factor: the screen detaches from the notebook to become a tablet PC complete with its own battery and independent operating system.
