Asus A31SD-AH51 13.3” Laptop with Intel Core i5 on Sale for $540

The Asus A31SD-AH51 is a thin and light 13.3” screen laptop that just a couple of weeks ago retailed for $700 on Amazon, but has since had a price drop to $540.  This particular model on sale has the following core specs:

asus-u31sd

  • Intel Core i5-2430m Processor 2.4GHz
  • 4GB DIMM RAM
  • 640GB 5400RPM Hard Drive
  • 13.3-Inch Screen, NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, 8 hours Battery Life

The Asus A31SD weighs only 4lbs and has an amazing battery life of up to 8 hours, making it a great portable laptop option.  Despite the light weight and long battery life, this laptop still has a lot of power to offer with its Intel Core i5-2430m processor and Nvidia GT 520M graphics.  One thing to mention is the fact that this model does not have the same magnesium-alloy body that the more expensive Asus A36SD-AH51 has, but that costs $778 on Amazon.com right now with the same specs.  If you’re on a budget and would prefer to save over $230 then I’d jump on this Asus A31SD-AH51 deal while it lasts at Amazon, stock is sure to be low give the low price and fact there is a U31SG model replacement.

    Just saw the number of units tick down from 6 to 5 (8AM PST) — tempted to push the buy button! I guess they’ll be out of stock sometime today…I should stop refreshing the page. ;)

      Yeah, the Marketplace sellers have had it listed ~$700 for a while. Amazon is out of stock, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they list a new batch next week. I’ll post an update if I see them again!

    Amazon is now listing the newer version for 629.99 which still seems like a good deal. Link: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-U31SG-AS51-13-3-Inch-Laptop-Black/dp/B006O7FLQG/ref=dp_return_1?ie=UTF8&n=541966&s=pc

    If anyone is interested, it looks like there are two more U31SD-AH51’s again at $540 (as of 4:50am PST).
