Review: ASUSPro Advanced BU201LA-DT189G

Just one more ASUS device, we promise. Okay, there’s a few more hiding in the wings but this will be the last one for about a week. Maybe. We think. This is the ASUSPro Advanced BU201LA.

And if you need a new business notebook (you should be needing one about now – January is coming) then the BU201LA is just what you’ve been looking for. Even if you didn’t know you were searching for it. It’s packed with the hardware you need to keep competitive in an office environment.

And, truth be told, a few things you don’t need which are still nice to have. But you didn’t hear that from us.

The BU201LA is a 12.5-inch notebook, which features a full HD display – that’s a 1920 x 1080 IPS panel – which is backed by Intel’s dual-core Core i7 4510U. This is a 2.0GHz processor, which is able to burst up to 3.1GHz.

The Intel core is supported by 4GB of RAM, which can be expanded to up to 12GB, and users also have 500GB of storage. Graphics are taken care of by an Intel HD Graphics 5000 solution.

The BU201LA ships with WiFi (up to 802.11 ac), Bluetooth, USB 3.0, an SD card reader, and a webcam.

And the BU201LA ships with Windows 7 64-bit Professional, for maximum office compatibility. That replacement is looking pretty good right about now.
