Easy to set up and get going. A lot of people complain about windows 8 but if you have been keeping up with trends you won’t have an issue with this. I guess if you are leaping from xp or vista. Well then welcome to this decade and things have moved on. Can’t say that i’ve got any issues and i love the hdmi plug which allows me to plug it into my tv.
Great laptop, great price, fantastic value. Great laptop, great price, fantastic value. I was toying with the idea of either an ipad or a macbook, but both were out of my price range and i felt i didn’t know enough to stray fem windows for my business yet. This is well spec’d enough to run photoshop, openoffice and other bespoke software my shop uses, all at once. I like the touchpad shortcuts and it is very intuitive. It doesn’t run a mobile version of windows, which is what i was looking for; as many chrome books and laptops now are light and powerful, but not really syitabke for businesses, unlike this laptop. Batter lasts a long time compared to other laptops i have used and it fits in my backpack easily, which was specified to fit a 15′ macbook air. Good for graphics on the go, and good strong wifi signals, where even my iphone won’t pick them up.
– great spec for the price (£360)- when ordered from amazon it actually came with 6gb ram and 750gb hdd. Downside is obviously windows 8. Awful compared to windows 7. Also, only integrated graphics, but what can you expect for the price.
Wow, great price, 6g and 750 hard drive, very easy to use, ticks every box and made a great christmas present. Haven’t put it through its paces yet, but so far outstanding laptop.
Asus x550ca -xx101h 15. 6 inch lap-top. This is a really good lap top. Didn’t like the touch of the mouse control panel at first but quickly got used to it and now i think it’s really good. The lap top is fast and efficient. A fantastic bargain at the price.
ASUS X550CA-XX101H 15.6-inch Laptop (Intel Core i7-3537U 2GHz Processor, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, DVD-RW, Windows 8) : Decent laptop but has a lot of issues. 99 core i7 4gb ram version of this laptop in september 2014, and have been consistently using it as my main laptop ever since. I initially bought it because of it’s high specs and good reviews, but there’s lots of nuances about this laptop that have annoyed me. Pros:• smart gesture keyboard is very nice and comfortable to use for a laptop in this price range. Never overheats or feels uncomfortable for the fingers. Quite intuitive, though there have been instances where it is unresponsive. • audio output is quite good, usually with other laptops in the past i’ve always had to augment the sound with usb speakers or similar. At least with these ones they’re quite loud. Cons (unfortunately this is a much longer list):• no backlit keyboard.
