ASUS X501U is a main cost-effective models, although the aircraft's performance in the comfort and life there is room for improvement, but the excellent performance for its price and high-performance hardware The aircraft is still regarded as a higher cost-effective products, and attractive for those with limited budgets and want to have a high-performance notebook users.
Although the ultra-pole momentum of high profile, but high-performance mainstream notebook continues to occupy the market leader. Today, we have reviewed the ASUS X501U, aircraft belonging to the latest X-series notebook, using a metal body design, combined with the personality of the floating-point texture highlights the metallic luster and exquisite workmanship of the notebook, giving a strong visual impact . In addition, the new series of ASUSP800 body evolution, thickness and weight are significantly reduced, and equipped with Harman Kardon speakers and SRS Sound Premiem 3D sound effects make you watch blockbusters have a proximity to their the shock of the environment feel.
For ASUS X501U using the SNB platform i3-2367 low-voltage processor, the GT630M an independent graphics card (2GB memory), 4GB DDR3 1600MHz and 640GB high-capacity hard disk. A slight regret is that the aircraft is not equipped with Intel's latest generation of IVB platform processor. However, in a notebook equipped with a low voltage processor, not very common.
ASUS the X501U appearance of the metallic taste is full, cover and shaft using the same metal material, not only makes the laptop more durable, while the appearance of more texture. The body thickness of only 28mm, the machine weight is only 2.025kg. Take obviously felt in the hands of the machine compared with the previous product, become thinner and lighter.
The machine is equipped with a 14-inch LED-backlit HD-hyun color, the best resolution of 1366 × 768, the first impression of a glossy screen, high brightness, high contrast, high sharpness, glossy screen is the current mainstream LCD monitor comparison popular high-contrast high-brightness display.
ASUS X501U with 6cell ASUS X501U battery and keyboard, using chocolate keyboard, this keyboard design key bit larger gap between the effective to prevent the misuse phenomenon in everyday typing. And a backlit keyboard, it will not affect text entry in a dark environment. Audio, the machine uses a harman / kardon speakers at the same time with the professional sound of the SRS premium 3D stereo surround sound, with a strong penetrating power.
Then there is the keyboard part of the notebook. The keyboard is divided island-style keyboard design, the key rebound moderate intensity, feel good, but not closed key design, a small foreign body is easy to go to the key below, usually to keep the keyboard clean.
Notebook touchpad with integrated design, the appearance of clean, crisp, and looks more beautiful. I found the trial process the left and right touch keys feel hard. In addition, this touchpad also supports multi-touch feature, which is still relatively novel in the current commercially available notebook design. Installed the appropriate driver, to support multi-touch functionality. The most common is two touch mode of operation and the iphone, android phone, tablet PC's two touch design, two mobile phones will be able to zoom or rotate the image, and zoom in the picture, there is virtual in the rotation process The emergence of special effects, this design is relatively new.
Touchpad near the status lights, from left to right, respectively, have a power indicator, charge indicator, hard work lights, Wireless LAN switch light-sensitive switch indicator. Finally, the palm rest part of the notebook palm rest with a brushed metal material, a metallic design not only improves the grade of the fuselage, and the metal material in the heat, better thermal conductivity than plastic, metal, cool colors also gives a cool feeling.
