Affordable laptop for basic computing
Display and Design
The ASUS X451CA-VX138D sports a 14-inch HD LED backlit Glare display which offers increased amount of brightness and a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is housed in a grey coloured package which has a weight of 2.1kg but can cause problems in terms of portability with a thickness of 37.6mm.
Configuration and OS
On the inside, the laptop is packed with a 1.5GHz Intel Celeron dual-core 1007U processor based on HM76 Express chipset. To assist the CPU in executing multitasking smoothly, there is a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1,600MHz. For better management of rich games and movies, it depends on the integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU. It is devoid of any user friendly OS which is okay in terms of its price.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The ASUS X451CA-VX138D is armed with a 0.3MP webcam and inbuilt microphone for taking care of online video calls. The 500GB SATA hard disk functioning at 5,400rpm provides sufficient space for creating a library of files and folders. It also has a DVD Writer with dual layer support which is capable of running all kinds of disks. The stereo speakers and ASUS SonicMaster technology provide rich multimedia platform.
Battery and Connectivity
The ASUS X451CA-VX138D keeps the show running for a fair period of time with a 4 cell Li-ion battery. The networking and connectivity features come in the form of Ethernet port, WLAN, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI out, one USB 2.0 slot and one USB 3.0 slot.
The ASUS X451CA-VX138D is a pocket friendly laptop capable of handling basic computing tasks only. It has a standard RAM but lacks a good CPU and any user friendly operating system. The presence of an optical drive is quite surprising in this price range.
