The UX301LA has more SATA connectors than most of the similar spec notebook PCs that came out in the last 12 months. Most of the newly released comparable spec laptops only have between two and three SATA connectors, however this Asus laptop has four SATA connectors.
Only Released Seven Months Ago
This portable PC is one of the newest notebook PCs to be released.
Has a Front Camera
The UX301LA has a front camera. Most of the other notebook PCs that are a similar age to the UX301LA also have a front camera.
Alternative notebook PCs with a front camera currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper notebook PCs such as the Lenovo T440s.
Intel Core I7 Processor Family
This portable PC has an Intel Core i7-4xxx processor family, which is typical of many laptops that have been around for the last year.
We compared all the other notebook PCs that have an Intel Core i7-4xxx processor family to this notebook PC and we think the Lenovo T440s which is cheaper is also worth considering.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The UX301LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most comparable spec laptops that were launched in the last year.
This laptop's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all portable PCs that were released in the last year.
Across comparable types of laptop the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The UX301LA has an SSD storage medium which is better than most comparable spec portable PCs that came out in the last year. Most newly released comparable spec laptops 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 actually the best storage medium amongst all laptops that have been available for around the same time as the UX301LA.
The worst storage medium amongst similar types of portable PC is HDD.
We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the T440s, and the T440s both from Lenovo is also worth considering.
