This model comes with the built-in Wi-Fi (dual-band), Bluetooth and WiDi adapters, the built-in shock protection for the hard drive that has a role to retain information if the laptop drops on the ground (it is a default option for a business laptop). There is also a TPM 1.2 and data encryption option, as well as the built-in Intel Anti-Theft support. The built-in 45Wh battery will provide some 6.5hrs of average usage, which is a good result for the model of this category. This laptop has shown what can be expected from the business models of the last generation, and that manufacturers such as Lenovo, Dell and HP got a serious competition.
Positive: Very quality design; Built-in protection from falls to hard drive; aluminum and carbon fiber casing; docking station; excellent spill-proof keyboard.

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.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

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

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.

» 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.

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.


14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg:

This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.5 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


90.67%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
