Product Description

Product Description

Designed for everyday multitasking and entertainment for smart and practical users, the Asus X series redefines your expectations of an all-round notebook. With a spun-circle finish and patterned palm rests, the X series adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to everyday computing. Its slim profile is 5% thinner than the previous X series, yet still houses a large touchpad with intuitive multi-point Smart Gesture input, USB 3.0 for fast data transfer and IceCool technology to keep your palm rests cool.

Value-packed with all the essentials, the X series reinvents your daily computing experience. Whether you are using it for work or for fun, this is an ideal machine for both productive computing and entertainment. It features an Intel Core processor, Instant on (that resumes your computer from sleep mode in 2 seconds) and USB 3.0 for up to 10x faster data transfer. The Asus X series gives you everything you need for a truly satisfying multitasking computing and multimedia experience.

On most notebooks, all sound frequencies originate from small onboard speakers, and the resulting audio comes from a single source and lacks distinctiveness. Like other notebooks in the Asus range, the X series comes equipped with SonicMaster technology and Asus AudioWizard to bring you high fidelity audio.

I'm really pleased with this laptop.

It's surprisingly lightweight and extremely quiet (much more so than the old laptop it replaces). I'm not a fan of glossy screens, but this one isn't too bad (I was intending to add an anti-glare film, but have decided it isn't necessary). The keyboard keys don't travel as far as on a desktop keyboard, but provide enough feedback for fast typing. They are much better than the keys on a Sony Vaio that I also own. The touchpad works well, but is very large, and prone to getting nudged when typing. This was ameliorated after I updated the driver for the latest Elantech one from Asus's website, which allows for more customisation of sensitivity, and after I installed the free Touchpad Blocker application, which allows you to disable the touchpad when typing.

The Core i3 processor doesn't break a sweat doing any everyday tasks (web browsing, word processing, spreadsheets, etc.), and the integrated graphics chip handles mp3 and DVD playback effortlessly. Even basic CAD software runs very smoothly. This isn't a machine for a serious gaming fan, but for everyone else, it should be fine. 6GB of RAM is more than enough for Windows 8.1, and I doubt I will ever come close to filling the 1TB harddrive (which comes partitioned into two 500GB sections).

The only slight annoyances are that it took many hours (and I mean a lot!) for Windows to install all the updates (from Windows 8 to 8.1, and dozens of other system updates and drivers), despite having a fast broadband connection; and that there are only two USB ports, both of which are on the left side, and neither of which supports charging of devices while the laptop is in standby (despite there being an Asus "USB charging" application pre-loaded on the laptop).

Can we PLEASE be clear here - we are reviewing an ASUS product NOT a Microsoft product. Other reviewers have made a similar point, but a number seem to give ASUS a negative review because of Windows 8. Windows, and in particular Windows 8 have issues which have absolutely NOTHING to do with ASUS. ASUS manufacture hardware NOT software. The ASUS product is very good at what it does and is fast, lightweight, attractive and has "Ice cool" technology. At the price it is excellent value. Windows on the other hand in my view, which seems to be shared by others has, and always has had, issues which lead to dissatisfaction. This would be the case irrespective of the hardware it was loaded onto. So to be clear ASUS and Microsoft are two different products and we are only reviewing the ASUS product in these reviews.

Lovely laptop and I'm now pretty au fait with Windows 8 and have upgraded to 8.1 now. The only thing that is a bad design is the mouse which emulates a touch screen. It is not centred on the keyboard letters so I keep swiping when I'm typing. Apart from that there is nothing I'd change. Very quick and light, also doesn't get hot on my lap.

My old machine was a desktop using Windows XP. The difference was, as expected, vast. I am now finding my way around Windows 8 and also getting used to not having a mouse.On the whole everything about this machine is very impressive, the value for money, the speed of operation and the clarity f the screen. The only problem is the operator, but this is improving with practise.

Great value at the price I paid. Could do with more USB ports but otherwise very happy with it. Read all the bad stuff about Windows 8 but have found it no problem - all the 'old' stuff is there if you look for it!

I purchased this as a replacement for my 6 year old ACER laptop.
After reading many reviews i finally decided to try the Asus X5500CA as the specifications exceeded my requirements for a sensible price. Once i got past my frustrations with Windows 8.1 and the associated changes for changes sake that are so loved by Microsoft I have started to explore its capabilities.
The first thing is the start up speed is much faster than previous versions of Windows.
The screen is clear and bright and the keyboard has a good positive feel.
The only thing I am still having problems with is the smart functions built into the track pad, but to be fair this is probably down to the operator more than the hardware.
If you are looking for a good laptop for general home office and family use then buy this one you could do a lot worse.

to understand if a retailer is good or not, you need to have some issues. First laptop was a (D.O.A.) - Dead On Arrival, they are very kind they changed, they give me also italian keyboard that I don't ask, but I really appreciate; I was totally unhappy with the courier - DPD - that have a total lack of professionalism that damages the relationship between the seller and the customer
