Asus X401A laptop review - price, features and specifications

Asus X401A review - this is one of the affordable and quite capable 14.1-inch laptops on the market today. The X401A features fast Intel processor, HD display and plenty of connection options.
The 14.1-inch HD LED display of the Asus X401A has resolution of 1366x768. The graphics power for this good display is provided by Intel's HD graphics accelerator with shared memory. The LED backlit display also means longer battery life and less power consumption than conventional  LCD.

Asus X401A laptop comes with few different Pentium processors, which are not on top of Intel's processor range but are perfect for the average consumer.
Asus X401A usually comes with 4GB of DDR 3 RAM but that is expandable to 8GB.

The basic hard drive for this laptop is a 320GB 5400 rpm SATA unit, bigger volumes are also available.

One very nice feature of the Asus X401A laptop are the built-in Altec Lansing stereo speakers which produce very good (for a laptop) sound.  Another very useful feature is the 2-second instant on resume from sleep or hibernate which will save you some time when in a hurry.
Asus X401A laptop price - around £250 in UK.
