Powerfully Packed to Travel Light

Measuring less than an inch at its thickest point, the U103 fuses powerful performance with slim styling to create a netbook that travels carefree anywhere without compromising computing capability. Packed into the feather-light 1.1kg (2.4lbs.)^ U103 is Intel’s latest 2-chip processor distinguished by improved memory support and even lower power consumption than previous generation architecture. A substantial 532GB maximum capacity dual drive combines a built-in 500GB maximum-capacity HDD and an optional 32GB SSD, sufficient for amassing an impressive mobile library of movies, music, pictures, and more. The handy SSD saves users time by enabling them to quickly access information on the SSD. Computing prowess for on-the-go work and play is further supported by Windows 7; comprehensive connectivity that includes high-speed WiFi, IEEE 802.11 b/g/n, optional Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and optional 3.75G HSUPA; and a unique flip-top keyboard that is 92% of full-size for comfortable, error-free typing.


Another notable advantage of the U103 is its smart, long-lasting battery system featuring exclusive Q-Charge. The standard 3-cell battery lasts 4 hours, ideal for business meetings and Internet surfing away from home, while the optional 6-cell, 8-hour battery keeps users entertained and productive on international flights. Enhancing generous battery life is Q-Charge, which quickly and conveniently recovers 4.5 hours of battery life (for the 6-cell battery) in an hour – perfect for recharging during connecting flights or a stop at the cafe.
