Reviews for the Asus K53E-A1

60% ASUS K53E-A1 15.6-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
ASUS tries very hard to make the K53E-A1 a compelling system based primarily upon is appearance. It certainly looks like a much more expensive system but functionality is certainly just as important. In this sense, there isn't much that ASUS does to separate it from many other $600 laptops.
