Across all medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to the UX303LA the memory clock speeds supported by processor ranges from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The UX303LA has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs of a similar age and type to the UX303LA.
The worst storage medium across similar types of laptop is HDD.
