Reviews for the Asus P55VA-XO011X

82% Review Asus P55VA Notebook | Notebookcheck
Expensive office notebook. A Core i5-processor, a matte display and Windows 7 Pro should result in a simple working device with proper performance. However, Asus wants 650 to 700 Euros (~$870 to $937) for the notebook. Our review shows if it is worth the price or if Asus has an expensive shelf warmer in its product range.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
