Asus Has Good Laptop Reviews

Portable PCs from Asus have an average rating of 79%, which is in the top 48% of all laptop manufacturers that we have looked at.

Has a Front Camera

The PU551LA has a front camera. Most of the other portable PCs of this age and type do not have a front camera.

We compared all the other laptops with a front camera to this notebook PC and we think the HP ProBook 450 G1[plb_2130025_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of other portable PCs which also have a front camera which you might also want to consider including the HP 15-j151sa[plb_2981268_price], or the Lenovo X240[plb_2389692_price].

4 Reasons Against

Quite Small Internal Memory

Across all the laptops that have been around for more than two years the internal memory range from 1GB to 16GB. With an internal memory of only 4 gigabytes, the PU551LA has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the PU551LA.

We compared all the other 4GB internal memory notebook PCs to this notebook PC and we think the HP ProBook 450 G1[plb_2130025_price], and the Toshiba Satellite C50D-B[plb_2379799_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this portable PC internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Y70[plb_2964651_price] (16GB) which is also cheaper.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the ProBook 450 G1[pl_2130025_price] (2.3kg and cheaper), or the Probook 650[pl_1457057_price] (2.5kg and cheaper) both from HP.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the Asus PU551LA has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to the PU551LA.
