A business executive should have a durable and good performance laptop in order to support of its productivity and media entertainment. On this case, most people will probably go with some choices like Lenovo Thinkpad or other, but sadly these choices are expensive and sometimes we want an affordable choice that would never break our pocket. Case this point, ASUS really knows about this case and provides P2540UA as their best option. The product is well designed and features a stable performance on handling multiple tasks.
The design itself might not be considered as the best one, but it feels really good in term of durability, solid connectivity, and weight profile. The I5 processor adds the performance while the 8 GB RAM helping on supporting the system. I really know that it would not be easy to make a choice and that is why we provide a review for it.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further and see it closely in many aspects. To make it easier for you to understand, lets we jump into the article.
Design And Features
The design is actually not something that would be proud here. They still brings the same style that they did on the last year. The only difference I found is the replacement of silver with matte black material. All of entire body included the lid is made from plastic and you are not going to find any aluminum part like you find on the high end ultra-portables. It measured at 0.9 x 15 x 101 Inches with 5.2 pounds of weight. The dimension is thicker than standard laptop, but still good to carry around.
The 15.6 inch screen is combined with full HD display. The display produces an accurate image although the detail is not that much. The number of detail is far, but you are still able to enjoy your favorite series in 1080p resolution without any big problem. I could not make any complain since the price is already cheap.back to menu ↑
The company is trying to play safe by not providing sinlge USB type-C port as the replacement for the standard ports. Here, they still give us standard USB with 3 USB 3.0 ports and single USB 2.0 port. There is also a VGA and HDMI port if you want to connect it with the monitor. One thing that that I should note here is the availability of fingerprint reader and TPM security and means now you have no worry on people will break into it.
The rest of ports to find including of headphone jack, RJ45 port, and single SD card reader for external storage. Everything is great and there is not anything left behind. Here, I really love their idea to bring of standard ports rather than using type-C port since there are so many users that still not getting used with it.

The performance is not something to worry here. The I5 7th gen processor that combined with 8 GB RAM is good enough on handling multiple works at the same time. I have tried to do some stress task my playing 1080 video while editing image on Photoshop. The performance is still good despite of these heavy tasks. It runs better in comparable with another machine at the same price. This is probably your best luck, if we are looking for performance.
The storage is also a big thing here. It features of 1TB storage that offers fast data transfer rate. Moving and transferring data could be done with the storage. 1 TB is more than enough to store dozen of photos and documents without any issue. If it’s still not enough, then just add the SD card or go with better storage and swap it by your own. There are so many choices are available.back to menu ↑
Those are information I know about it. It’s hard to find similar choice like this one at this price, so just take it away and do all of your works with it. I am pretty sure that you will be surprised on how good it is. Everything is still back on you on deciding, so feel free to make any choice. I just hope the information is good enough for you. At last, thank you for reading the article and see you again.
