60% Asus X401a
Source: Computer Active English
It's easy to forgive the X401a's many faults given its very low price. If you want an inexpensive lightweight laptop though, the Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook is better in almost every respect. It's more expensive at just under £500, but it's better value and is our recommendation unless you're on a very tight budget.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

AMD Radeon HD 6320:

Integrated graphics card in the Zacate netbook processors (e.g. E-450) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory. Thanks to TurboCore, it can automatically overclock to 600 MHz.

Intel HD Graphics 2000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The 2000  is the slower, internally GT1 called, version with 6 Execution Units (EUs).

AMD Radeon HD 7340: Integrated processor graphics card in the 2nd generation of Zacate APUs (e.g., E2-1800). Due to Turbo Core, the graphics card can clock from 523 to 680 MHz and is based on the same core as the Radeon HD 6320 (1. generation Zacate).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium:

B950:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. Due to the Pentium brand, many features of the Sandy Bridge core are deactivated.

AMD E-Series:

E-450:

Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. The processor is on a level with Celeron SU2300 (1.2 GHz) and the GPU part about as fast as an Nvidia ION (2).

E2-1800: Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. The processor is on a level with Celeron SU2300 (1.2 GHz) and the GPU part about as fast as an Nvidia ION (2).

Intel Celeron:

B830: Entry level dual core processor for laptops with integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics based on the HD Graphics 2000) and reduced features of the Sandy Bridge core (no Turbo Boost, AES, ...).

1.7 kg:

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

1.9 kg:


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
