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

Pros:
+ 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.

Asus laptop X551MA-SX030H

What’s in the box?
------------------------
The laptop and UK mains transformer and warrantee card.

Set up.
----------
This is typically driven by Windows 8. You have to set a few parameters like time, date, password if you want one etc. It’s pretty straight forward to get going. You are also asked if you want to connect to the net and it is handy to have your router key and password handy for this.

In use.
---------
The laptop comes with Windows 8 which I have always found a pain to use on a non-touch screen laptop. Microsoft allows you to do a free upgrade to Windows 8.1 which is far more laptop friendly so worth doing.
Update problems and how to over come them.
This is where problems start. The version of Windows 8 supplied on the laptop was many months out of date so there were over 100 Windows updates to install before the upgrade to 8.1 could be done. It took about two hours to download everything but several of the updates failed and the machine reverted back. This is very frustrating but typical of Microsoft updates, some have to be set up and running before other can be loaded correctly. However, the update process does not seem to know about this. In order to get the machine up to date a second run of Windows updates was needed and this went in fine but took over two hours. After this I could update to 8.1 and it took another hour to do this.
SO this is not really Asus’s fault but an inherent problem with Windows. However, it is worth persevering as Windows 8.1 is much better on this laptop.

Tasks.
---------
I was not expecting this low power machine to run Windows 8.1 very well but I was quite surprised when I found that it does a decent job.

The item arrived in good time and is as expected. It is a good computer for the price. Ideal for home use. The problems I have encountered have been with windows 8. I have had to upgrade to 8.1 before I can get the computer to act like windows 7 (why do these people always take a good product and make it worse? Don't know who could have thought this was a good idea!). The second problem is the power lead. It is far too short and I am unable to charge the computer and use it at the same time without the use of an extension cable! However, on the whole, I am satisfied.

Style Name: Intel Celeron Verified Purchase
Neat, light, easily legible, clean and sharp in detail very pleased for what I require it for which is mainly just for personal use. A little disappointed that it is difficult to see at a glance if the Capitals lock is on and have to remember to check first so as before a light on the button would have been better. However, overall a good choice and would recommend

A really good laptop for its money. Don't expect a world beating game-playing machine but a great machine for those day to day tasks and it is not bad for the candy crush, farm heroes game players. The only niggle for me is the keyboard, not quite as positive as I like.
