At 32 gigabytes, the Asus K55VD has a quite big maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Quite New PCI Express Slot Version
Medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the K55VD have PCI Express slot versions of between 2 and 3, and the average PCI Express slot version is 2.2. At 3, the Asus K55VD has a fairly new PCI Express slot version compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the K55VD.
Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 650 megahertz, the Asus K55VD has one of the fastest on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst comparable spec portable PCs of this age. The slowest on-board graphics adapter base frequency of laptops of this age and spec is 200MHz and the fastest is 650MHz.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 2.5 gigahertz, the Asus K55VD has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the K55VD. Across all the comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the K55VD the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.1GHz.
If this notebook PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo T410[plb_1629753_price] (2.53GHz).
+9 More reasons for
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Asus K55VD supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most portable PCs of a similar spec and age to it. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all notebook PCs of this age and type.
The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across comparable types of laptop is 133MHz.
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The Asus K55VD has a full-size keyboard. Most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the K55VD also have a full-size keyboard.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other laptops of a similar type and age to the K55VD, the Asus K55VD has a front camera.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This laptop has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many notebook PCs that are a similar age to it.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This notebook PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many portable PCs of this type and age.
Fairly Big Battery Capacity
The battery capacities of laptops of a comparable spec and age to the K55VD range from 3mAh to 30,000mAh. The Asus K55VD has one of the bigger battery capacities (4,700 milliamperes * hour) amongst laptops of this age.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
