Reviews for the Asus K450CA-BH21T

60% ASUS K450CA-BH21T
Source: Comp Reviews English
For those wanting a full size laptop with a touchscreen, the ASUS K450CA-BH21T is probably the most compact one on the market currently. Beyond the touchscreen display though and its size, there is not much remarkable about it. If you don't need a touchscreen, there are more powerful options out there with better battery life.

Model: This budget laptop has been developed for maximum portability, therefore it features a thickness of 1.3 inch (3.3 cm) and weighs slightly over 2 kg. The 14 inch touchscreen has a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and a reflective surface. The system is powered by an Intel Pentium 2117U dual core Processor. It also has a 4 GB PC3 12800 DD3 RAM, a 500 GB 5400 rpm SATA hard drive and an integrated Intel HD graphics card. The Intel Pentium 2117U is actually a simplified and scaled down version of the Intel i3 processor, which has been modified to meet budget constraints.

Despite being economized and renamed, this processor is more than enough for undemanding everyday tasks like streaming videos, browsing the web, viewing pictures, writing documents and watching videos. Certainly, the special standout feature is the multi-touch screen here, which works well with the Windows 8 operating system for better and easier navigation. Additionally, there is a 37 Wh battery, which provides a battery life of three to four hours. If you are looking for a simple, user-friendly, compact laptop, this is an ideal option to consider.

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.
