I'm a college student and currently have a 3 year old HP DV6-1030us laptop and a Toshiba NB205-N230 netbook. I have had enough of the HP; the battery died and I got a replacement from the warranty, but it is a big bulky extended life battery and the laptop is big enough already, so it isn't even portable anymore. The netbook is very annoying and underpowered, which i bring to class.

I am looking for a new laptop that is both easily portable (not some 7 pound beast like my HP) and has specs decent enough so that it won't be obsolete in a few years. I have been looking at the ASUS UL30VT-A1 and X1 models and, although they themselves are 2-3 years old, seem to be exactly what I'm looking for. I have seen many reviews that say they are great but, again, they are 2-3 year old reviews.

I was wondering if anyone with any experience with these laptops can help me out if they are good laptops? They all seem to be either refurbished or used, and my plan is to sell my HP and netbook, which it looks like on ebay I can get 350-400 total, and pay the difference towards an A1 or X1
