80% Asus X501A-XX277H review
Source: Tech Advisor English
Despite its low price, Asus gets all the basics right with the X501A, providing a sturdy, portable laptop with good battery life. It’s no speed demon, but if you just need a basic laptop for undemanding tasks then the X501A provides excellent value for money.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
