Asus ASUSPRO Advanced BU201LA-DT036G

The ASUSPRO series is designed for those who wish to own a high-quality business notebook, and it certainly performs up to expectations. With the BU201 having a simple yet durable dark grey plastic casing, it forgoes design elements as it is simply a working device. Weighing in at only 1.36 kg, it is rather light to carry around for business and a height of 21 mm just makes it comparable to ultrabooks. Besides that, it has a matte 12.5 inch IPS display screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. It features an Intel Core i5, an Intel HD Graphics 4400, 4 GB of single-channel DDR3 RAM as well as a 500 GB Toshiba HDD. In addition, the BU201 delivers three USB 3.0 ports, a VGA output, a Mini-DisplayPort, a Kensington Lock for security, a 3.5 mm stereo jack, a 4-in-1 card reader, a SmartCard reader and a fingerprint reader. Additionally, it has a standard 11ac Intel WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 card for connectivity, and a 0.9 MP front webcam.

Asus reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Iris Graphics 5100:

Integrated GPU (GT3) with 40 EUs (sans eDRAM) as found on certain ULV Haswell CPUs. Second fastest GPU in its family.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M:

Rebranded GeForce GT 645M/640M with minimal improvements to power consumption. Can also be based on the slower GK208 chip (only 64 bit memory interface).

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce 840M:

Mid-range graphics card from the GeForce 800M series based on the Maxwell architecture.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Intel HD Graphics 4600:

Integrated processor graphics card found on a number of Haswell CPU models. Offers varying clock speeds depending on the CPU.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

4558U:

Haswell-based low-voltage dual-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Graphics 5100 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4650U:

A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5000 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i5:

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4210U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.7 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4210M: Haswell-based dual-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


86.67%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
