From its plastic shell to its poor performance, and not very good battery life. The ASUS E410 is a laptop that is built on the promises of compromises. You get this, but we take away that. This is where a bigger question comes in – do you really need a laptop? Are you willing to sacrifice your sanity to use the E410? Well, we are joking (of course). But really, if you want to remain intact, go for the Pentium iterations. Windows 11 really sucks on two cores. ASUS E410’s TN panel has a Full HD resolution. Its backlight doesn’t use PWM, while the pixel response times are really fast. On the other hand, the screen has very narrow viewing angles, a low contrast ratio, and limited color coverage (53% of sRGB). This makes the overall viewing experience pretty poor. This leads us to the other options – a 768p TN unit, which should be banned with a decree by the Pope, and a 1080p IPS panel. The latter is the choice you want to make, regardless of the price. Thankfully, ASUS has given you one M.2 PCIe lot to play with. We are not sure if the slot will persist, should you get an eMMC flash storage upon purchase. However, it is still good to see one. Plus, it supports NVMe drives! Expectedly, the port selection is not great – you lack an SD card slot, and one of the USB Type-As is 2.0. However, we’ve seen worse. So, would we recommend this product? Well, no. We wouldn’t. But honestly, there is nothing in this class that we would rather push you towards. Instead, if you really don’t have the budget for something better, make sure you get two things – a Pentium CPU, and an IPS panel. The other stuff is not that bad.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
