The BU401LA is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port laptop.
Intel Core I7 Processor Family
The BU401LA has an Intel Core i7 processor family which is better than most medium processor core laptops that have been available for more than two years. Most medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago have an Intel Core i5 processor family. Across all medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as the BU401LA the worst processor family is AMD E and the best is Intel Core i7-3xxx.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The BU401LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to it. Most comparable spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the BU401LA.
The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across comparable types of portable PC is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The BU401LA has a better storage medium than most notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to it. This laptop has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core laptops that were launched around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to the BU401LA.
The worst storage medium amongst comparable types of notebook PC is HDD.
If you want a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the DELL XPS 13 (£492.83) (SSD).
Has a Front Camera
The BU401LA has a front camera, as do most of the other medium processor core laptops that have been available for more than two years.
The lightest laptop of this age and type is 300g heavy and the heaviest is 3.8kg. At only 1.6 kilograms, the BU401LA is fairly light compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that were released more than two years ago.
+8 More reasons for
AC Cable Included
This notebook PC has an AC cable included, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.3 gigahertz, the BU401LA has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core laptops of this age. Comparable spec portable PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the BU401LA have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.3GHz and 3,300GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 6.5GHz.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This laptop has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many laptops of this type and age.
Fairly Big Battery Capacity
At 6,840 milliamperes * hour, the BU401LA has a very big battery capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that are a similar age to the BU401LA. The average battery capacity of laptops of this age and type is 3,700mAh.
802.11g WiFi Standard
The BU401LA has an 802.11g WiFi standard which is better than most medium processor core laptops that have been available for more than two years. Most notebook PCs of this age and spec have an 802.11n WiFi standard. Across all medium processor core laptops that were launched more than two years ago the Wi-Fi standard ranges from 802.11a to 802.11n.
Three USB 3.0 Ports
The BU401LA is a three USB 3.0 port portable PC. Most of the other portable PCs of this spec and age have between one and four USB 3.0 ports.
Very Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the BU401LA range from 0.51MB to 4MB, and the average processor cache is 2.9MB. At 4 megabytes, the Asus BU401LA has a fairly big processor cache compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to the BU401LA.
9 Reasons Against
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
Laptops that are a similar age to the BU401LA have total storage capacity of between 1GB and 1.5TB. When compared to other medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the BU401LA, the Asus BU401LA's total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
Most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been available for more than two years have a full-size keyboard, however the BU401LA does not have a full-size keyboard.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The BU401LA has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 1.7 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core laptops of this age. The slowest processor clock speed of laptops of a comparable type and age to the BU401LA is 0.8GHz, the fastest is 3.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.1GHz.
Quite Small Internal Memory
With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the BU401LA has one of the smaller internal memory amongst medium processor core laptops of this age. Across all the medium processor core laptops that have been available for around the same time as the BU401LA the internal memory range from 1GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 5.1GB.
+6 More reasons against
Only SonicMaster Audio System
This notebook PC audio system, which is typical of many comparable spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Like most of the other notebook PCs of this age and type, the BU401LA does not have a touch sensitive screen.
Only Windows 8 Recovery Operating System
This portable PC has a Windows 8 Pro recovery operating system, which is the most commonly found recovery operating system on notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to it.
Only 1,000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This notebook PC Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently found Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as it.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This notebook PC supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is typical of many notebook PCs that are a similar age to it.
2 Other reasons to consider the Asus BU401LA
