Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity portable PCs currently available including the DELL Inspiron 15R[plb_1385146_price], or the Lenovo G50-70[plb_2319444_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

Like most of the other similar spec laptops that have been available for around the same time as the X75A, the Asus X75A has a full-size keyboard.

It is worth considering other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard including the X75A[pl_2093232_price], or the P550CA[pl_2611468_price] both from Asus or the HP ProBook 4540s[plb_1532938_price].
