ASUS P-Series P2540UA-AB51 Business Laptop
ASUS P2540UA-AB51 is brand new release business laptop at a budget price as part of the Asus P-Series, with a great modern design, a very long battery life, a Full HD 15.6 inch screen, modern connectivity, fingerprint scanner for additional security and TPM chip for data protection and the latest powerful seventh generation i5 processor offering business productivity.
Asus P2540UA comes with the Kaby Lake dual-core Intel i5-7200U processor (3MB cache) at 2.5GHz to 3.1GHz speeds with turbo boost and hyperthreading (2 cores that work with 4 threads at once), 8GB DDR4 SDRAM to let you run a few apps and programs simultaneously, 1TB Serial ATA hard drive at 5400rpm spindle speed which is much slower than an SSD but offers plenty of storage for a variety of your files and the 64-bit Windows 10 Home version.
The Intel i5-7200U processor has the benchmark score of 4715 and as a reasonably powerful and energy efficient processor with a Thermal Design Power of just 15 watts, it is capable of handling more than your daily business and multimedia tasks while using up less battery. And despite having a crystal clear Full HD display the battery life on these P series machines is reported to be up to 9 hours and this will depend on how you use the machine and the environmental conditions. And it will last shorter by time.
TPM stands for “Trusted Platform Module” and is a small chip- a piece of hardware that makes sure your data is protected and doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. There is a very easy access battery and memory door at the back of the unit so even though the 8GB memory is plenty you can easily add more if you need more multitasking power. The battery is also easily replaceable and you can use 4, 6 or 9-cell batteries for extended use and maintenance. And it gives easy access for repairs as well.
15.6-inch anti-glare matte, scratch resistant and non-touch Full HD display offers the 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution for a very good quality image without the undesirable reflections. This is not a gaming laptop so you won’t find a dedicated graphics card but an Intel HD 620 graphics card. It offers a similar performance to the older Intel HD 520 and NVIDIA GeForce 940M so you can play some of the not so demanding latest games at low settings and resolutions. Asus P2540UA weighs just 5.2 pounds, looks modern and professional with the brushed hairline textures and ergonomic design.
It includes a DVD Optical drive along with a variety of connectivity options including 3 x USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI output and a VGA output to connect the machine to external displays, and a Kensington Security Lock. It has a one piece full-size chiclet-style keyboard with the right key locations and alignment. The keyboard offers you more a comfortable, accurate and quick typing experience and the multi-gesture touchpad is good for an intuitive and natural navigation on Windows 10 screen. The convenient fingerprint scanner works with the Windows Hello and lets you log in the system in just a couple of seconds.
There is even a “power connector alert” function that lets you know when the power supply is disconnected or if it doesn’t function properly so you will not be interrupted suddenly when you’re working. With the integrated WOL (Wake-on-LAN) hardware module, the system will be back on from hibernation or power off mode by a network message on LAN connection and this is good for remote computer support and maintenance. Overall, The Asus P2540UA is a solid, portable, reliable, efficient and powerful business laptop with great security features at an affordable price. You will get the Asus P2540UA laptop, an AC adapter, a user guide along with a warranty card in the box.
