Hey guys and gals,

I am looking around for a laptop at the moment, which I'll mostly look to use for university stuff such as word-processing, web browsing also knowing me, I'd look towards playing some games on it aswell but thats not why I'm buying the laptop.

I am hoping to get a laptop which has a battery life of around 8+ hours while Im doing work.

Because of this I am quite interested in getting something out of the ASUS UL series because I can have super good battery when I need to work. And when I want to play a couple of games I can switch the graphics card over.

Ive been reading reviews, and its been a rather mixed bag so Im not too sure about it.

So I was wondering if knows about the series, particularly any major issues or flaws.

Also are there other types of laptops which offer the graphics card changing function?

Any input is helpful,

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Lenovo at one point (and maybe still now) make laptops with switchable graphics cards?
