ASUS U1F Ultraportable

ASUS on Monday demonstrated a new model in its notebook range named the U1F. The 11.1-inch widescreen system achieves a record-setting 1.8-pound weight through a combination of parts, according to ASUS: LED backlighting on the display sheds the need for a thicker casing while improving the color uniformity of the screen, and the use of a 1.8-inch hard drive similar to those found in the iPod reduces the overall bulk. An external DVD/CD-RW combo or DVD-RW drive is similarly included to save space.

The U1F will be of the more capable ultraportables available, ASUS claims: the PC is one of the first to use an ultra-low voltage 1.06GHz Core 2 Duo and will run for up to 2 hours on a standard battery despite its thin profile. Configurations are expected to vary by country and store but will start with 512MB of RAM, a 40GB hard drive, and a VGA webcam. Up to 80GB of storage will be included. ASUS hopes to ship the U1F in March. A full photo is available after the jump.
