Amongst comparable types of notebook PC the worst display resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels.
Other portable PCs that have a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels currently available that you might also want to consider include the Lenovo Z51-70 (£624.00) which is cheaper.
Has a Front Camera
The UX303LA has a front camera. Most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the UX303LA also have a front camera.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative notebook PCs with a front camera currently available including the Lenovo T450s which has a better Rating.
We compared this portable PC to all the other portable PCs with a front camera and we think the HP EliteBook 820 G2 (£812.50), or the Lenovo T440p is also worth considering.

The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across comparable types of laptop is 133MHz.
+10 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The Asus UX303LA has a better storage medium than most medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for the last year. This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most new medium processor core 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 in fact the best storage medium amongst all portable PCs that came out in the last 12 months.
Amongst similar types of portable PC 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 a cheaper notebook PC such as the 840 G2 (£789.99), or the 840 G2 (£789.99) both from HP or you might consider a better rated notebook PC such as the T450s, or the T450s both from Lenovo.
Fairly Long Battery Life
Notebook PCs that were released in the last year have battery lifes of between 4h and 22h, and the average battery life is 7.2h. The UX303LA has a quite long battery life (9 hours) compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core laptops.
If you want a longer battery life then you might want to look at the Lenovo T450s (10.16h) which also has a higher Rating.
802.11g WiFi Standard
The UX303LA has an 802.11g WiFi standard which is better than most medium processor core laptops that came out in the last year. Most newly released medium processor core laptops have an 802.11b WiFi standard. Across all similar spec portable PCs that came out in the last 12 months the best Wi-Fi standard is 802.11n and the worst is 802.11a.
Three USB 3.0 Ports
The Asus UX303LA is a three USB 3.0 port notebook PC.
Very Bright Display Brightness
Portable PCs that are a comparable age to the UX303LA have display brightnesss of between 200 cd/m² and 350 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 230 cd/m². At 350 candellas per square meter, the Asus UX303LA has a very bright display brightness compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core laptops.
At only 1.5 kilograms, the Asus UX303LA is quite light compared to most of the other latest portable PCs. The lightest similar spec portable PC that was launched around the same time as the UX303LA is 1.2kg heavy, the heaviest is 3kg, and the average weight is 2.1kg.
Quite Big Battery Capacity
The UX303LA has a fairly big battery capacity (50 watt-hours) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that are a similar age to the UX303LA. The battery capacities of comparable spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the UX303LA range from 23Wh to 120Wh.
The narrowest notebook PC that was launched in the last 12 months is 310mm wide, the widest is 420mm, and the average width is 370mm. The UX303LA is quite narrow (only 323 millimeters) compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as the UX303LA.
The heights of laptops that have been on the market for the last year range from 17mm to 28mm, and the average height is 23mm. At only 18 millimeters, the UX303LA is quite thin compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core laptops.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Asus UX303LA does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other new comparable spec notebook PCs.
There are a number of other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard that you might also want to look at including the Lenovo G50-70 or the Lenovo T450s.
Very Small Screen Size
The UX303LA has a fairly small screen size (only 13.3 inches) compared to most of the other latest similar spec portable PCs. Laptops that are a comparable age to the UX303LA have screen sizes of between 12" and 18", and the average screen size is 15".
If this portable PC screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the HP 840 G2 (£789.99) (14" and cheaper); or the Lenovo T450s (14" and higher rated).
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for a similar time to the UX303LA is 250GB and the biggest is 1TB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Asus UX303LA has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the UX303LA.
If this Asus laptop total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Z51-70 (£624.00) (1TB) which is also cheaper.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Most medium processor core laptops that came out in the last year do not have a touch sensitive screen. The UX303LA is no exception to this as it too does not have a touch sensitive screen.
It is worth considering alternative laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Lenovo T450s which also has a higher Rating.
+4 More reasons against
Only SonicMaster Audio System
This laptop audio system, which is the most frequently found audio system on similar spec portable PCs that came out in the last year.
Only Three Battery Cells
The UX303LA is a three battery cell count notebook PC. Most of the other laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the UX303LA have between three and seven battery cells.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
Comparable spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as the UX303LA have maximum internal memory of between 4GB and 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 15GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 12 gigabytes, the UX303LA has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst similar spec portable PCs of this age.

Released Twelve Months Ago
It was twelve months ago when Asus released the UX303LA.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The UX303LA has a fairly average processor clock speed (2.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other notebook PCs that came out in the last year.
If this laptop processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo Z51-70 (£624.00) (2.4GHz and cheaper) or the Lenovo T450s (2.3GHz and higher rated).
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the UX303LA has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as the UX303LA.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB internal memory portable PCs currently available including cheaper laptops such as the Z51-70 (£624.00), or the G50-70 both from Lenovo or the HP 840 G2 (£789.99).
