Very Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Across all the notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the UX51VZ the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 200MHz to 650MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter base frequency is 430MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 650 megahertz, the Asus UX51VZ's on-board graphics adapter base frequency is one of the fastest amongst notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.
Three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Asus UX51VZ is a three USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port notebook PC.
Intel Core I7 Processor Family
This laptop has an Intel Core i7-3xxx processor family, which is the most frequently found processor family on portable PCs of this type and age.
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The Asus UX51VZ has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the UX51VZ.
+11 More reasons for
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Asus UX51VZ supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most portable PCs of this age and type. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
This laptop's memory clock speeds supported by processor (1,600MHz) is actually the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all notebook PCs that have been available for a similar time to the UX51VZ.
The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst comparable types of laptop is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
The Asus UX51VZ has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
This laptop's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium amongst all similar spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the UX51VZ.
The worst storage medium amongst comparable types of laptop is HDD.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other portable PCs of a similar type and age to the UX51VZ, the Asus UX51VZ has a front camera.
The lightest portable PC of this age and spec is 430g heavy, the heaviest is 4.8kg, and the average weight is 2.5kg. The Asus UX51VZ is quite light (only 2.1 kilograms) compared to most of the other notebook PCs that came out more than two years ago.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to it.
Two Installed SSDs
The Asus UX51VZ has more installed SSDs than most of the portable PCs that are a similar age to the UX51VZ. This Asus notebook PC is a two installed SSD notebook PC compared to most of the comparable spec notebook PCs that are a similar age to the UX51VZ which only have one installed SSD.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This notebook PC has an 802.11a|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many laptops of this age and spec.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This notebook PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many laptops of this age and spec.
Eight Battery Cells
The Asus UX51VZ is a eight battery cell count notebook PC. Most of the other many processor core portable PCs that came out more than two years ago have between two and eight battery cells.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This portable PC has a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly found discrete graphics memory type on many processor core portable PCs that are a comparable age to it.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Asus UX51VZ does not have a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the UX51VZ also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This notebook PC Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most commonly found Ethernet LAN data rate on portable PCs of this spec and age.
Only 1x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
The biggest memory slots of the Asus UX51VZ is 1x SO-DIMM. That's 50% less memory slots than the most common memory slot of 2x SO-DIMM.
A 1x SO-DIMM memory slot is actually the worst memory slots across all many processor core portable PCs that were released around the same time as the UX51VZ.
The best memory slots across similar types of laptop is 4x SO-DIMM.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of portable PCs of this age and type range from 2GB to 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 18GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 8 gigabytes, the Asus UX51VZ has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other portable PCs of a comparable type and age to the UX51VZ.
+2 More reasons against
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This laptop supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is typical of many laptops of this age and spec.
6 Other reasons to consider the Asus UX51VZ
