[Review] Asus F402BA-EB91 Balanced Performance on all Fronts


There are essentially two reasons why people would rather opt for an SSD drive over an HDD drive; storage speed and weight of the overall device.

With the newly released ASUS F402BA-EB91 the company has managed to remove one of such constraints and delivers a laptop that packs a 1 TB hard drive within a very comfortable 0.9 inch size and 3.6 pound weight. Sure enough it's still not as fast a storage as your SSD storage units but then again it's also much, much, cheaper.

Today we dive into the review of the ASUS F402BA-EB91, a very attractive laptop that offers a very affordable price point for those looking to buy a power laptop without emptying out their bank accounts. Asus's latest venture comes with an  HD 14 inch display, an AMD processor, 8 GB of RAM and a multiverse of connectivity options that simply aren't that common within budget laptops such as this one. Without further ado, lets get on with the review.

[Review] Packard Bell N1400BK, Is this budget laptop for you?


Pros: Affordable price point, 14.1 inch display, vast battery life, attractive design
Cons: 2 GB of RAM, not suitable for extensive multitasking, entry level processor.

Packard Bell isn't the name brand it used to be a few years back. In fact, most of you might not even know of the brands existence. That said, I used to have a Packard Bell laptop so I was pleasantly surprised to hear about one of their most promising and inexpensive laptops; the Packard Bell N1400BK.

On its latest venture Packard Bell doesn't aim at the power user but at the more modest user. It's latest launch doesn't intend to compete against a high end macbook or even a high end Asus. No, this laptop has a very simple purpose; it aims at being your go to "travel" and "casual laptop", even doing the part of desktop replacement for those who don't really see the point of buying a laptop with a ton of bells and whistles they're not really going to take advantage of.

It's latest model packs a 14 inch display, eMMC storage, 2 GB of RAM and the latest Windows 10. It is, by all accounts; a cloudbook. Today we get to the meat of it and review the model to study with some depth if it's really worth your time and money or if you should simply move onto something else as we dive head first onto the review of the Packard Bell N1400BK.
