Asus X401U-EBL4 Laptop

I'm, personally, an Asus fan. I feel they produce good products and they make them available at a decent price. The Asus X401U-EBL4 is no exception, especially when it's available for under $400. As an entry-level type laptop, the Asus X401U-EBL4 is best suited for the casual user who doesn't want to break the bank. It's also great for the student who's focus is homework and basic computing.

This computer will appeal to several demographics to varying degrees. Below is a summary of our recommendations based on the type of user you are.

Most students will find themselves running Office (Word, Excel, etc) more often than not. The Asus X401U-EBL4 handles typical students apps just fine.

Casual User:
If all you are looking to do is browse the web and Facebook your friends, the Asus X401U-EBL4 is an affordable option for you.

Power User:
With only 4GB of installed RAM, the Asus X401U-EBL4 may have trouble if you plan on doing any serious multi-tasking.

Business User:
Unless you are a serious power user, the Asus X401U-EBL4 should also perform acceptable for most average business users.

Serious gamers will want to look for something built for gaming. The Asus X401U-EBL4 is not a gaming laptop.

If you are on a budget and require basic computing power, the Asus X401U-EBL4 is something to consider. If you need lots of power for serious gaming and multi-tasking, there are better options.
