ASUS UL-Series Notebooks Get Core i3 ULV Processors
ASUS’ thin-and-light UL-series notebooks have been showing up for sale online with Intel Core i3 ULV processors.
The ASUS UL-series lineup includes the UL30 and UL80 series. The first revision of the notebooks included the Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor, which ran at 1.3GHz. ASUS is replacing the SU7300 in newer UL-series notebooks with the Core i3-330UM processor, which runs at 1.2GHz but is faster than the SU7300 because it is more efficient clock-for-clock.
The UL80JT-A1 notebook at Amazon.com has the following specifications:
- 14-inch (1366×768) glossy display
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
- Intel Core i3-330UM processor (1.2GHz)

Expect to see more notebooks based on Intel Core 2 Duo and Celeron ULV processors replaced or updated with models featuring new i3, i5, and i7 ULV processors.
