this sounds too good to be true.  Can you prove me wrong?

This thing is worse in almost every way from the $799 Asus UL30Vt that was released last week. The comparitivly speced Dell swings in at $824 with 'only' 32-bit Windows 7, Integrated Intel 4500MHD crappy-graphics and a non-overcloced 1.3 at it's highest processor spec and 4GB of RAM. The only ways the Dell is better is that it's .18 inches thinner, comes with a 1.3MP Webcam instead of the 0.3 Asus, a 7200rpm hard drive, and it has an anti-glare screen.

Paul, come on man, you're impressed too easily on this one. The 13.3-inch market is being targeted for the CULV products but Asus is dominating at the moment.

The Asus UL30Vt has HDMI out, an Nvidia 210M chip it can use on the fly, more battery life, a larger hard drive, 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium, and auto-overclocking of it's 1.3 processor to close to 1.7 when needed.

Dell got served ;)
