Most portable PCs of this age and spec have between one and four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the UX303LA which has three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Intel Core I7 Processor Family
The UX303LA has an Intel Core i7 processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5 processor family found on most comparable spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it. The processor family of all medium processor core laptops that were released around the same time as the UX303LA ranges from AMD E to Intel Core i7-3xxx.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The UX303LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most notebook PCs of this age and spec.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst all similar spec notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the UX303LA.
A 133MHz processor memory clock speed is the worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across similar types of laptop.
SSD Storage Medium
The UX303LA has an SSD storage medium which is better than most notebook PCs of this type and age. Most laptops that are a similar age 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.
This notebook PC's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs that are a comparable age to the UX303LA.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium across similar types of notebook PC.
If the storage medium of this notebook PC is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the DELL XPS 13 (SSD).
Has a Front Camera
The UX303LA has a front camera. Most of the other notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years also have a front camera.
Has a Touch Sensitive Screen
The UX303LA has a touch sensitive screen, which is unusual. Most of the other portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the UX303LA do not have a touch sensitive screen.
+6 More reasons for
802.11g WiFi Standard
The Asus UX303LA has an 802.11g WiFi standard which is better than most notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. Most portable PCs that were released more than two years ago have an 802.11n WiFi standard. Across all similar spec portable PCs that are a comparable age to the UX303LA the Wi-Fi standard ranges from 802.11a (worst) to 802.11n (best).
Three USB 3.0 Ports
The Asus UX303LA is a three USB 3.0 port portable PC. Most of the other laptops of this age and type have between one and four USB 3.0 ports.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
Across all the portable PCs of this age and spec the processor caches range from 0.51MB to 4MB. At 4 megabytes, the UX303LA has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the UX303LA.
At only 1.5 kilograms, the UX303LA is fairly light compared to most of the other laptops that are a comparable age to the UX303LA. Across all the medium processor core laptops that have been around for a similar time to the UX303LA the weights range from 300g to 3.8kg.
With a width of only 323 millimeters, the UX303LA is fairly narrow compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and type to the UX303LA. The widths of medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago range from 28mm to 430mm.
8 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The UX303LA has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter base frequencies (only 200 megahertz) amongst comparable spec laptops of this age. The on-board graphics adapter base frequencies of laptops of a comparable age and spec to the UX303LA range from 200MHz to 650MHz.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor
The maximum internal memory supported by processors of medium processor core laptops that are a similar age to the UX303LA range from 2GB to 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 23GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the UX303LA has a fairly small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other laptops of this age and type.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other laptops of a similar type and age to the UX303LA that we have checked, the total storage capacity of the UX303LA of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The total storage capacity of notebook PCs of this age and spec range from 1GB to 1.5TB, and the average total storage capacity is 500GB.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
Most of the other portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the UX303LA have a full-size keyboard, however the Asus UX303LA does not have a full-size keyboard.
+5 More reasons against
Quite Small Screen Size
The Asus UX303LA has a quite small screen size (only 13.3 inches) compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to the UX303LA. The screen sizes of medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the UX303LA range from 10" to 18", and the average screen size is 15".
Only SonicMaster Audio System
This laptop audio system, which is typical of many comparable spec portable PCs that have been around for a similar time to it.
Only Three Battery Cells
Most laptops that have been available for around the same time as the UX303LA have between two and eight battery cells, including the UX303LA which has three battery cells.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This portable PC supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is the most commonly supported Bluetooth version on laptops of a similar age and spec to it.
3 Other reasons to consider the Asus UX303LA
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Asus released the UX303LA.
Average Internal Memory
At 6 gigabytes, the UX303LA has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 1.8 gigahertz, the Asus UX303LA has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago.
If this Asus portable PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Acer TravelMate TMP2 (1.9GHz).
