Most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to the TP500LA only have between two and three SATA connectors, however the TP500LA has four SATA connectors.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This notebook PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on 2 in 1 laptops that came out more than a year ago.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for a similar time to the TP500LA is 600MHz and the fastest is 1,300MHz. At 1,000 megahertz, the TP500LA has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for a comparable time to the TP500LA.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that have been on the market for more than a year, the TP500LA has a front camera.
Very Big Screen Size
Across all the laptops of a similar spec and age to the TP500LA the screen sizes range from 8.9" to 16". When compared to other similar spec notebook PCs that were released one year ago that we have assessed, the screen size of the Asus TP500LA of 15.6 inches is one of the biggest.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many laptops that were launched more than a year ago.
+5 More reasons for
Two USB 2.0 Ports
Most portable PCs that came out more than a year ago have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the TP500LA which has two USB 2.0 ports.
Has a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Asus TP500LA has a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that are a comparable age to the TP500LA also have a touch sensitive screen.
1,000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This portable PC Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
Quite Big Battery Capacity
Notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the TP500LA have battery capacities of between 22Wh and 3,200Wh. With a battery capacity of 48 watt-hours, the TP500LA has one of the bigger battery capacities amongst portable PCs of this age.
5 Reasons Against
Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of only 200 megahertz, the TP500LA has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other portable PCs that have been on the market for more than a year. The average on-board graphics adapter base frequency of portable PCs that are a comparable age to the TP500LA is 280MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 650MHz.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The TP500LA does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other laptops of a comparable spec and age to the TP500LA also do not have a full-size keyboard.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The TP500LA has an HDD storage medium which is better than most 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for a comparable time to it. Most similar spec laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as it have an SSD storage medium. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
This laptop's storage medium (HDD) is actually the worst storage medium across all 2 in 1 laptops that were released around the same time as the TP500LA.
Across comparable types of laptop the best storage medium is SSD.
At 2.1 kilograms, the Asus TP500LA is quite heavy compared to most of the other portable PCs of this age and type. Similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the TP500LA have weights of between 580g and 2.8kg, and the average weight is 1.7kg.
+2 More reasons against
Only SonicMaster Audio System
This portable PC audio system, which is typical of many notebook PCs of a similar age and type to it.
5 Other reasons to consider the Asus TP500LA
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this Asus laptop was released.
Intel Core I3 Processor Family
The TP500LA has a better processor family than most similar spec laptops that have been around for around the same time as it. This portable PC has an Intel Core i3 processor family, whereas most 2 in 1 laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as it have an Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family.
Average Total Storage Capacity
With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the TP500LA has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other 2 in 1 laptops that have been available for around the same time as the TP500LA.
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 6 gigabytes, the TP500LA has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec laptops that were launched around the same time as the TP500LA.
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 1.7 gigahertz, the Asus TP500LA has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other portable PCs that came out around the same time as the TP500LA.
