ASUS Laptop X401-RGN4 Intel Pentium B970 (2.3 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's a laptop so its portable. It was cheap. I like the color and design. Have been able to run Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 and various Linux flavours. Usb 3.0. HDMI out. Good Display. Nice web cam. Decent amount of RAM and Storage. 4 hour battery life. Not heavy. Doesn't overheat.

Cons: Non-upgradeable--poor even for a laptop. Not a not really a performance beast or game machine. Touch pad is touchy sometimes, like most laptops. Ethernet cables are difficult to remove once plugged in due to the design. Really, it would be great if I could put more RAM and an SSD in this.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I will call ASUS about RAM and SSD options for this laptop. 1080p via HDMI 720p via built in display, could be a pro or a con. Not too familiar with Laptops or Notebooks or Tablets or Smartphones and what not.
