|Having done my research on a PC that was light but powerful, with a large memory and RAM. Well, I was in the market for a laptop that was lighter than my 1545, with just enough processor muscle to keep me going and decent graphics. I bought this product primarily because of the Nvidia Optimus chip and the claims of 10+ hours of battery life.|

|Good and Bad The Asus Ul80vt is perfect on paper, with 4gig Ram DDR3, 320gb, 11.5 hour battery life. However. Great laptop I purchased this laptop after looking around for a couple of weeks. I needed decent specs, 14" screen and great battery life.|
|saravanakumar.gg||8:16am on Tuesday, May 4th, 2010|
|Price, Screen Brightness, GFX Card, build quality, Battery Life and slim factor/size/weight Keyboard flex is very noticeable. I absolutely love love love this laptop. The size/weight to power ratio alone justifies the already inexpensive cost.|

2. FEA TURES Optional Components
UltraPerformance: Onboard IDE Bus Master controller with two connectors that support four IDE devices in two channels. Supports UltraDMA/66, UltraDMA/33 (IDE DMA Mode 2), PIO Modes 3 & 4, and supports Enhanced IDE devices, such as DVD-ROM, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW, LS-120, and Tape Backup drives. Dual Speeds: CPU frequency can operate at either 133MHz or 100MHz. High-Speed Data Transfer Interface: IDE transfers using UltraDMA/33 Bus Master IDE can handle rates up to 33MB/s. This motherboard with its chipset and support for UltraDMA/66 doubles the UltraDMA/33 burst transfer rate to 66.6MB/s. UltraDMA/66 is backward compatible with both DMA/33 and DMA and with existing DMA devices and systems so there is no need to upgrade current EIDE/IDE drives and host systems. (UltraDMA/66 requires a 40-pin 80-conductor cable to be enabled and/or for UltraDMA Mode 4.) Concurrent PCI: Concurrent PCI allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master buses to memory to CPU. RDRAM Optimized Performance: This motherboard supports the new generation memory, Rambus Dynamic Random Access Memory (RDRAM). While PC100 SDRAM modules operate at 100MHz with a peak bandwidth of 0.8GB/s, Rambus DRAMs can operate at up to 800MHz with a peak bandwidth of 1.6GB/s. ACPI Ready: ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) is also implemented on all ASUS smart series motherboards. ACPI provides more Energy Saving Features for future operating systems (OS) supporting OS Direct Power Management (OSPM) functionality. With these features implemented in the OS, PCs can be ready around the clock, yet satisfy all the energy saving standards. To fully utilize the benefits of ACPI, an ACPI-supported OS, such as Windows 98, must be used. PC 99 Compliancy: Both the BIOS and hardware levels of the motherboard meet PC 99 System Design requirements. The PC 99 requirements for systems and components are based on the following high-level goals: support for Plug and Play compatibility and power management for configuring and managing all system components, and 32-bit device drivers and installation procedures for Windows 95/98/NT. Color-coded connectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by PC 99.
WARNING! Installing the URM while the retainer pins are pushed in will not only cause the URM to be installed improperly but will also damage the URM. 5. Push the four retainer pins completely down into the black fastener sleeves until the head of each pin is securely seated.
3.6.4 Installing the Processor
NOTE: The following steps assume that you have already attached the heatsink and installed the URM into your motherboard. 1. Make sure that the processor substrate key is aligned with the Slot 1 connector key.
2. Push down firmly but gently the SECC2/SECC/SEPP into the URM until it snaps into place. NOTE: The processor edge fingers must be kept parallel to the connector or else misalignment will occur. SECC for Pentium II only: Secure the SECC in place by pushing the two SECC locks outward so that the locks show through the retention mechanisms lock holes. SECC2/SEPP: When engaged, the T-bars lock into the slots at the two ends of the SECC2/SEPP heatsink.

CPU fan cable to fan connector
CAUTION! You may wear gloves to protect your hands from the sharp edges when removing SECC2/SEPP processors.
3.6.6 Recommended Heatsinks for Slot 1 Processors
The recommended heatsinks for the Slot 1 processors are those with three-pin fans, such as the ASUS Smart Fan, that can be connected to the motherboards CPU fan connector. These heatsinks dissipate heat more efficiently and with an optional hardware monitor, they can monitor the fans RPM and use the alert function with the Intel LANDesk Client Manager (LDCM) or the ASUS PC Probe software.
3. H/W SETUP Expansion Cards
3.7.2 Assigning IRQs for Expansion Cards
Some expansion cards need an IRQ to operate. Generally, an IRQ must be exclusively assigned to one use. In a standard design, there are 16 IRQs available but most of them are already in use, leaving 6 IRQs free for expansion cards. If your motherboard has PCI audio onboard, an additional IRQ will be used. If your motherboard also has MIDI enabled, another IRQ will be used, leaving 4 IRQs free. The following table lists the default IRQ assignments for standard PC devices. Use this table when configuring your system and for resolving IRQ conflicts.
Standard Interrupt Assignments
IRQ 2 3* 4* 5* 6 7* 8 9* 10* 11* 12* 13 14* 15* Priority N/A 10 Standard Function System Timer Keyboard Controller Programmable Interrupt Communications Port (COM2) Communications Port (COM1) Floppy Disk Controller Printer Port (LPT1) System CMOS/Real Time Clock ACPI Mode when enabled IRQ Holder for PCI Steering IRQ Holder for PCI Steering PS/2 Compatible Mouse Port Numeric Data Processor Primary IDE Channel Secondary IDE Channel
*These IRQs are usually available for ISA or PCI devices.
Interrupt Request Table for this Motherboard
IMPORTANT: Interrupt requests are shared as shown by the following table: INT-A shared shared INT-B shared shared shared INT-C shared shared INT-D shared shared
IMPORTANT: If using PCI cards on shared slots, make sure that the drivers support Share IRQ or that the cards do not need IRQ assignments. Conflicts will arise between the two PCI groups that will make the system unstable or cards inoperable.
3.7.3 Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) Pro
This motherboard provides an accelerated graphics port (AGP) pro slot to support a new generation of AGP graphics cards with ultra-high memory bandwidth.
Rib (inside slot) AGP Card without Retention Notch

4.1 Managing and Updating Your BIOS
4.1.1 Upon First Use of the Computer System
It is recommended that you save a copy of the original motherboard BIOS along with a Flash Memory Writer utility (AFLASH.EXE) to a bootable floppy disk in case you need to reinstall the BIOS later. AFLASH.EXE is a Flash Memory Writer utility that updates the BIOS by uploading a new BIOS file to the programmable flash ROM on the motherboard. This file works only in DOS mode. To determine the BIOS version of your motherboard, check the last four numbers of the code displayed on the upper lefthand corner of your screen during bootup. Larger numbers represent a newer BIOS file. 1. Type FORMAT A:/S at the DOS prompt to create a bootable system floppy disk. DO NOT copy AUTOEXEC.BAT & CONFIG.SYS to the disk. 2. Type COPY D:\AFLASH\AFLASH.EXE A:\ (assuming D is your CDROM drive) to copy AFLASH.EXE to the just created boot disk. NOTE: AFLASH works only in DOS mode. It will not work with DOS prompt in Windows and will not work with certain memory drivers that may be loaded when you boot from your hard drive. It is recommended that you reboot using a floppy. 3. Reboot your computer from the floppy disk. NOTE: BIOS setup must specify Floppy as the first item in the boot sequence. 4. In DOS mode, type A:\AFLASH <Enter> to run AFLASH.
Note that a right pointer symbol appears to the left of certain fields. This pointer indicates that a sub-menu can be launched from this field. A sub-menu contains additional options for a field parameter. To call up a sub-menu, simply move the selection to the field and press <Enter>. The sub-menu will then immediately appear.
