5 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

Asus is one of the superior portable PC manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all portable PCs.

SSD Storage Medium

The Asus X101 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most laptops of this age and spec. 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 laptops that came out around the same time as the X101.

The worst storage medium across comparable types of portable PC is HDD.

Very Thin

The heights of laptops of this age and spec range from 16mm to 420mm, and the average height is 49mm. The Asus X101 is fairly thin (only 17.6 millimeters) compared to most of the other laptops that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest notebook PC that was released more than two years ago is 210g heavy and the heaviest is 4.5kg. The Asus X101 is fairly light (only 920 grams) compared to most of the other laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the X101.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The narrowest notebook PC that has been around for around the same time as the X101 is 200mm wide and the widest is 430mm. With a width of only 262 millimeters, the Asus X101 is one of the narrower laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the X101 amongst laptops of this age.

15 Reasons Against
