The manufacturing quality of notebooks has converged in the last ten years; no longer anymore do we have clapping bay doors and unclean-looking stamped plastic pieces. The latter was consistently on our nerves and continually demanded that we activate it. AnandTech First, let me make it clear that there’s really a lot to like with the U30Jc.

We cannot heap too much praise on the Nvidia Optimus system, as the technology was only tested with simple applications that did not stress the GPU to a great extent. The free-standing keys offer large hands enough breathing room, increasing typing accuracy. It is only when the i5-processor and the Nvidia graphics are nvidai to task in a stress test that the cooling fan makes its presence known with Unless otherwise stated, all performance claims are based on theoretical performance.

Weak areas are first found when typing; the keyboard has poor feedback and its surface has plenty of give lending a spongy typing experience. The same cannot be said of the DVD-drivewhich during operation watching a film emitted a constant shrill whistle.
