Reviews for the Asus X501A-XX402H

70% Asus X501A-XX402H review
Source: PC Advisor English
On the plus side, the Asus weighs a portable 2.1kg, which is well below average for a 15.6in laptop. It’s no ultraportable, but the X501A can easily be carried around. With a battery that provides a good 4.5 hours of video streaming over Wi-Fi, it’s a real bargain.
