Style Name: Intel Celeron
This is the newer updated version of the Asus X551MA-SX018H model, it features the same screen, keyboard and unit as the prior model, with the exception that the CPU is now a somewhat faster Intel Celeron N2815 1.86GHz (the older one had a 1.5GHz CPU) It's not a huge step up but the addition of bluetooth 4.0 might just appeal to some..

There is a significant difference in CPU performance from the Intel Core i3 3217U 1.8GHz and the Celeron N2815 1.86GHz. The i3 being over twice as fast as the Celeron. Bear that in mind depending on your needs and the price point.

The core specification is fairly straightforward with enough memory and hard drive space for most users and more than enough for day to day use

A quick fire list of pros and cons

+ Great value one of the lowest prices on a laptop
+ 15.6" 1366x768 screen is quite good and contrasty easy to read and sharp (better than you expect for the price)
+ 4GB ram and 500GB hard drive is more than sufficient for most users needs even if you have quite a lot of media files around
+ One USB port is the faster USB 3.0
+ Built in SD Card Reader, as well as Wired Lan port and HDMI out
+ Webcam with Microphone built in (not the best webcam in low light but it's fine for this price with decent resolution)
+ Keyboard and touchpad are satisfactory, good response on the trackpad and the keys are of the enclosed type (harder for small children to rip them off!)
+ DVD/CD Burner 8x and 24x should satisfy any media playback/burning needs
+ Bluetooth 4.

Style Name: Intel Core i3 Verified Purchase
Having read some mixed reviews about quality and finish I am delighted with this purchase. Firstly, I'm an IT professional but wanted a cheap and cheerful full laptop so that I can take abroad to work - a workhorse not a fashion icon. It needed to be powerful enough and have sufficient features that I could still function away from home - I run my own website design business. This machine has exceeded expectations. Firstly quality and appearance. It appears solidly build, with a keyboard that feels responsive and precise. The only downside to be honest is that there is no caps lock light. The mouse pad is a lot better than my other laptop which is an HP and again functions precisely and smoothly. The casing is a textured finish not unlike some Compaq or HP laptops. Yes, it will mark with sweaty hands, but a soft cloth cleans it down nicely.
The screen is quite shiny but lovely and clear. Fine in normal and even bright light.
Performance for an inexpensive (well relatively) laptop is very good, multi-tasking without hesitation or any obvious delays and everything loads very quickly. The startup time is very quick from a cold startup, maybe that is Windows 8. It runs quite fast too. Compared with many PC's and laptops this could be said to be a quick machine. Certainly better than others I have tried in this price bracket recently. Installing software from the built in DVD drive was very quick and startup of apps is fast too.
It's not preloaded with Windows 8.1, but Windows 8. Updating is reasonably straightforward but I wouldn't say would be easy for a complete novice. Overall Windows 8 (or 8.1) is what it is. I don't find it as off putting as many, but wouldn't say it was Microsoft's moment of glory!

Style Name: Intel Core i3 Verified Purchase
Paid about £295 (deal of the week) for the Intel Core i3. Excellent value as you would normally get the ‘lesser’ Intel Celeron or Intel Pentium for this price! Secure packaging.

Pros: Such good value that you can accept the cons! Light weight, quick start, great screen resolution, good battery life, made out of good quality material, quiet and full keyboard.

- Expect to leave fingerprints all over your laptop because the material is a hard plastic type; the natural oils from your skin will transfer.
- If you touch type fast, there is a slight bothersome 'hollow' sound from tapping the keys (not as noticeable if you type slowly).
- Upgrading to Windows 8.1 can take at least 6 hours because you need to do about 93 Windows updates first before you can upgrade to Windows 8.1.
- No indicator light when caps lock or num lk are on/off.
- Your DVD player may not play DVDs, you’ll have no idea why and no indication of what to do! Try downloading codecs for your DVD player (mine only worked after downloading Windows 8 codecs AND K-Lite codecs combined). Also, remember to set the DVD Region.
- The Windows 8.1 sliding ‘charm’ window will keep opening up when you’re working which can be irritating. To my knowledge, there is no way to stop it except to avoid using the far right hand side of your mouse pad (mouse pad has shortcut qualities).
- If you’re working from a USB stick, expect Windows Explorer to work slowly and stall frequently.
- There may be quite a few pointless pre-installed programmes that you’ll want to remove.

Many people complain about Windows 8.1; it’s not great but if you approach using it slowly and logically, you just need time to find your way around the operating system. This laptop doesn't come with MS Office installed (no surprise given the inexpensive price) but offers a trial version of Office 365 and paid upgrade option.
