14 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

Medium processor core notebook PCs built by Asus have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on laptops of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Four SATA Connectors

The BU401LA has more SATA connectors than most of the medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year. Most of the notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BU401LA only have between two and three SATA connectors, however this notebook PC has four SATA connectors.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago is 750MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. At 1,100 megahertz, the BU401LA has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Intel Core I7 Processor Family

The Asus BU401LA has a better processor family than most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. This portable PC has an Intel Core i7 processor family, whereas most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it have an Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family. Across all notebook PCs of this spec and age the processor family ranges from AMD E to Intel Core i7-4xxx.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The BU401LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago. Most medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This Asus laptop also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Notebook PCs of this spec and age processor memory clock speeds range from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The BU401LA has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most comparable spec laptops that have been available for more than a year. 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 actually the best storage medium across all medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the BU401LA.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst similar types of laptop.

If the storage medium of this medium processor core notebook PC is too bad for you then you might also want to consider the Elitebook 820 G2 (£750.00) (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 G2 (£529.99) (SSD) both from HP.
