Asus X453MA Laptop Windows 8.1 Unboxing by TomCabloGaming
Asus X453MA Unboxing [HUN]

5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium processor core notebook PCs manufactured by Asus have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all portable PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that Asus also has good ratings across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on notebook PCs that were launched more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than a year ago the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 650MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 313 megahertz, the Asus X453MA has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter base frequencies amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Asus X453MA has a front camera, as do most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the X453MA.

We compared all the other laptops with a front camera to this portable PC and we think because of it's better review score, the X250[pl_2898227_price], and the E550[pl_2890048_price] both from Lenovo or the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price] is also worth considering.

26 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

X453MA owners on average rated this notebook PC 35%. This means that users really don't rate this Asus laptop very highly.

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than a year ago the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 750MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 950MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 750 megahertz, the Asus X453MA's on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is one of the slowest amongst medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the X453MA.

Chart Edit

Only Not Supported HD Type

The HD type of this notebook PC is Not supported, which is typical of many portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to it.

We compared all the other 2GB internal memory laptops to this notebook PC and we think because of it's better review score, the Stream 11[pl_2499666_price], and the Stream 11 Pro[pl_2688535_price] both from HP or the Asus F200MA[plb_2413091_price] is also worth considering.

If this portable PC internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to consider the B50-80[pl_3812194_price] (4GB and higher rated), or the X250[pl_2979058_price] (4GB and higher rated) both from Lenovo or the HP Elitebook 1040 G2[plb_2979403_price] (4GB and higher rated).

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Asus X453MA does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the X453MA which have a full-size keyboard.

We think you might also be interested in alternative notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Asus S200E[plb_1537972_price], the Lenovo ThinkPad X240[plb_2812690_price], or the HP ProBook 450[plb_2827816_price] which is also higher rated.
