Buying a cheap laptop is always like a gamble. Sometimes we get a good thing, but also sometimes the only thing is coming is the bad one. That is always the case for many years until now, but I am going to make an exception for this one. L402SA is the series model that introduced by ASUS to satisfy the consumer needs for cheap choice. Not everyone is interested on buying 1000 dollars product or even more because they basically do not need it. So, for anyone is looking for standard machine on handling some simple tasks, this might be your best luck.
It packs with good standard things such as dual core processor, 4GB RAM, 32 GB storage and plus you also get one year free subscription for Office 365. All of those things are available only in under 300 dollars. There is no way we would get the same thing with another product. If you are still not able to make the consideration, then maybe we should take look at it closely.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to see it better and see how it’s performance. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
The design is might not something to say much on this case, but I really want to talk about its build quality here. As I opened the box, I made the check on its entire package and found that the hinge and the deck are very strong and does not flex at all. This thing is always becoming my top priority to check on cheap machine because sometimes I find that the build quality is not that good.
The system comes with total weight for 3.3 pounds that measured at 0.9 inches thickness. I was so surprised that its bit lighter than Dell Inspirion 14. The weight is really light and you have no problem on taking it with single hand. The connection is also not big issue because the company packs it with many of them like USB 3.0 port, HDMI, and as well of VGA and SD card slot.back to menu ↑
Keyboard And Touchpad
People will primary buy this device for supporting their productivity, so it’s worth to mention the keyboard and touchpad. The keyboard might not as good in comparable with higher model, but the performance is nice where I was able to type for more than 75 words during the test with 10fastfingers test. The keys are responsive and good to spend for some hours.
The only thing I found bad is located on the both Control and Shift keys that accidentally touch for some reasons. This is sometimes happened when try to use of these keys. I guess this is the only choice for ASUS to make it fit with the screen.
At last, the touchpad offers a solid feel and accurate movement although scrolling in the web browsing could be troublesome since the size of touchpad is small. The quality is still acceptable, so you should not feel that worry on this case.

Performance And Software
The performance is considered as good although you will notice some lags when you open for more than 5 tabs at Chrome. It’s happened rarely and depends on what you are seeing at the moment. Make sure not to run too many applications on the background and you would not have any issue. Also be careful on using the storage because it only comes with 32 GB memory.
It includes of some not useful applications on the system. ASUS put these things with some reasons. This is the only choice they can make the money from this cheap laptop. You only need to delete it from the control panel and you would get more spaces for the storage.back to menu ↑
