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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
+9 More reasons for
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.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other laptops of a similar spec and age to the BU401LA, the Asus BU401LA has a front camera.
L3 Processor Cache
This laptop has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to it.
Very Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.3 gigahertz, the BU401LA has a very fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the BU401LA. Portable PCs of this type and age have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 3.7GHz.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This laptop has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as it.
Very Big Battery Capacity
With a battery capacity of 6,840 milliamperes * hour, the Asus BU401LA has one of the bigger battery capacities amongst notebook PCs of this age. The average battery capacity of comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the BU401LA is 3,600mAh.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Portable PCs of this spec and age have processor caches of between 1MB and 6MB, and the average processor cache is 3.1MB. The BU401LA has a fairly big processor cache (4 megabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec laptops that have been available for a similar time to the BU401LA.
Quite Big Battery Capacity
Notebook PCs of this age and type have battery capacities of between 23Wh and 120Wh. At 53 watt-hours, the BU401LA has a quite big battery capacity compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age.
8 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The BU401LA has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency (only 200 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year. Across all the comparable spec laptops that are a similar age to the BU401LA the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 290MHz.
Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the BU401LA range from 1.7GB to 16GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.74 gigabytes, the BU401LA has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
Most of the other portable PCs of this type and age have a full-size keyboard, however the BU401LA does not have a full-size keyboard.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Asus BU401LA has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. Across all the laptops of this age and spec the total storage capacity range from 16GB to 2TB.
+5 More reasons against
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
Across all the laptops of this spec and age the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz. With a processor clock speed of only 1.7 gigahertz, the BU401LA has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This portable PC has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
