This notebook PC has an 802.11g WiFi standard, whereas most laptops of a similar age and type to it have an 802.11n WiFi standard. Across all notebook PCs of a similar spec and age to the UX501JW the worst Wi-Fi standard is 802.11a and the best is 802.11n.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This laptop has a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly found discrete graphics memory type on many processor core laptops that are a similar age to it.
The average height of many processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the UX501JW is 27mm. With a height of only 20.6 millimeters, the UX501JW is one of the thinner notebook PCs that have been around for a similar time to the UX501JW amongst comparable spec laptops of this age.
7 Reasons Against
Only 11.2/12 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This notebook PC has an 11.2/12 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is the most commonly found on-board graphics adapter DirectX version on many processor core laptops that have been around for around the same time as it.
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
The on-board graphics adapter base frequency of the Asus UX501JW of only 200 megahertz is one of the slowest amongst portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the UX501JW. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of laptops that were released one year ago is 380MHz.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Asus UX501JW does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other many processor core laptops that were released more than a year ago which have a full-size keyboard.
Only HDD Storage Medium
This notebook PC has an HDD+SSD storage medium, which is typical of many many processor core laptops that came out around the same time as it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
+4 More reasons against
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Like most of the other many processor core laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the UX501JW, the UX501JW does not have a touch sensitive screen.
Only 128 Solid-State Drive Capacity
The Asus UX501JW is a 128 gigabytes solid-state drive capacity laptop. Most of the other many processor core laptops that have been around for around the same time as the UX501JW have between 8 and 511 solid-state drive capacity.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
Many processor core laptops that have been around for around the same time as the UX501JW have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 2.9GHz. The Asus UX501JW has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other laptops of a similar spec and age to the UX501JW.
If you are looking for a laptop with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the Toshiba C55 (£338.22) (2.16GHz) which also has a higher Rating.
3 Other reasons to consider the Asus UX501JW
