Asus UL Series Laptops: Thin and Light, Focus on Battery Life

The new range looks kinda suave, and Asus claims some models get up to 12 hours of battery life. How? They all use Intel's latest ultra-low voltage processors, and let you switch between dedicated and integrated graphics.

I'm generally not a fan of Asus keyboards, so I'm interested to see how the new chiclet style keys feel in use. Likewise for the flush multi-touch mousepad that let you perform Macbook-style gestures (like pinching).
