64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This laptop supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many notebook PCs of this spec and age.
Price Has Dropped by £119.82
The UX301LA has dropped in price by £119.82 in the last 11 days.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
At 2.4 gigahertz, the UX301LA has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and spec. The processor clock speeds of portable PCs of a comparable type and age to the UX301LA range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz.
We compared this laptop to all the other 2.4GHz processor clock speed portable PCs and we think the ZBook 14 G2[pl_3017135_price], the Elitebook 820 G2[pl_2886802_price], and the EliteBook 840[pl_2783814_price] all from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Notebook PCs with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo T450s[plb_3046986_price] (2.6GHz).
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Asus UX301LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most similar spec notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. Most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all similar spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the UX301LA the best memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The UX301LA has an SSD storage medium which is better than most laptops of this age and type. Most laptops of a comparable age and type to it 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 in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs that have been available for a similar time to the UX301LA.
Across similar types of laptop the worst storage medium is HDD.
There are a number of other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper portable PCs such as the 13Z940[pl_2362386_price], or the 13Z940[pl_2362386_price] both from LG.
If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo T550[plb_2954049_price] (SSD), or the DELL Latitude 12 E7250[plb_2885455_price] (SSD).
