1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The UX303LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to it. Most portable PCs that were released one year ago support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the UX303LA the memory clock speeds supported by processor ranges from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The UX303LA has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs 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 in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs of a similar age and type to the UX303LA.

The worst storage medium across similar types of laptop is HDD.

If you want a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the Elitebook 820 G2[pl_2886802_price] (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 G2[pl_2897415_price] (SSD) both from HP.
