Model: The ASUSPRO is an ultrabook built for professional users where security is a concern, since it is equipped with several data protection layers. The security features available are a fingerprint scanner, a Trusted Platform Module, Intel Anti-theft LoJack and HDD password protection. The BU401LG features an Intel Core i5 processor clocked at up to 2.6 GHz and 4 GB DDR3 low voltage RAM (up to 8 GB). The 14.0 inch screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels with an aspect ratio of 16:9. As for mass storage, this ultrabook has a 128 GB SSD and a 500 GB HDD. Along the sides of this device, there are three USB 3.0 ports, a VGA port, an SD card reader and an HDMI out.

At just 1.64 kg and 20 mm thick, this device is very portable and can last the whole business day solely on battery. The body of the ASUSPRO is highly durable as it is constructed with magnesium alloy and also carbon fiber for several parts of the body. The Ultrabook is shock resistant and features a spill resistant keyboard. Thus it will remain functioning despite a coffee spill or a minor drop. Finally, the ASUSPRO BU401LG is a reliable business companion with a slim design and many security feature.

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).

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

14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
