Affordable laptop for basic computing
Display and Outfit
The ASUS F451CA-VX152D carries a 14-inch HD LED backlit TFT Colour LCD display offering moderately sharp viewing experience with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is wrapped in a black coloured body which has an impressive weight of 1.92kg and a waistline of 37.6mm which may not fit easily everywhere.
Processor and Platform
For driving its processes, the ASUS F451CA-VX152D is equipped with a 1.8GHz Intel Pentium dual-core 2177U processor from the third generation family and based on HM70 Express chipset. Assisting it is a mere 2GB DDR3 RAM which can be further expanded up to 8GB through two user accessible memory slots. Rich videos and games are handled by the integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU. It is devoid of any user friendly OS which is nothing abnormal considering its price.
Camera and Storage
The ASUS F451CA-VX152D sports an Acer CrystalEye webcam which can shoot 720p videos and handle high resolution video calls smoothly. It takes care of the storage needs of the user with a 500GB SATA hard disk operating at 5,400rpm. The SuperMulti DVD Drive with dual layer support is useful in streaming data from different kinds of disks.
Battery and Connectivity
Keeping the notebook juiced up for a decent period of time is a 4 cell Li-ion battery. From the connectivity and networking point of view, we have features like HDMI out, VGA port, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0, Ethernet port, WLAN, one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.0 slot.
If you aren't willing to spend much and need a laptop that can handle basic computing applications, the ASUS F451CA-VX152D is a nice package. The 15.6-inch laptop sports mediocre configuration and lacks any user friendly platform. It impresses with features like HD webcam and SuperMulti DVD drive.
