Reviews for the Asus A53E-XA2
Source: PC Mag
In terms of performance and battery-life, the Asus A53E-XA2 is rubbing shoulders with some of the best laptops in the budget category. For day to day use, it's an affordable laptop with strong performance, but it can't quite match the similarly priced Editors' Choice Asus U56E-BBL5, which offers similar performance along with high-end features like USB 3.0, WiDi 2.0, and WiMAX mobile broadband for only $20 more.
