Affordable laptop with standard configuration
Display and Design
The ASUS X451CA-VX140D carries a 14-inch HD LED backlit Glare display which offers moderately sharp viewing experience with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The grey coloured package has a weight of 2.1kg but might stand as a hurdle when you need to carry it over long distances thanks to a thickness of 37.6mm.
Configuration and OS
For driving its processes, the laptop depends on a 1.8GHz Intel Core i3 processor belonging to the third generation and based on HM76 Express chipset. It is aided by a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1,600MHz and is expandable via the two user accessible DIMM slots. The responsibility of managing rich games and movies is given to the integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU. It doesnÂt come with any preloaded user friendly platform so you need to buy it separately.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The ASUS X451CA-VX140D has been spotted with a 0.3MP webcam embedded in the bezel above the display. For storage purposes, you can utilize the 500GB SATA hard disk functioning at 5,400rpm. The presence of a DVD Writer with dual layer support allows you to stream data from disks at ease. The stereo speakers and ASUS SonicMaster technology provide crisp audio quality while watching movies.
Battery and Connectivity
The ASUS X451CA-VX140D runs the show with a 4 cell Li-ion battery and sports networking and connectivity features like one USB 3.0 slot, Ethernet port, digital media reader, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, one USB 2.0 slot and HDMI out.
If you aren't willing to spend much and need a laptop for standard computing tasks, you can shortlist the ASUS X451CA-VX140D. It has a standard configuration along with 500GB HDD and optical drive. The lack of OS is okay in terms of the price.
