The Asus X551MA-SX036D is light and mobile without compromising performance. The Asus X551MA comes with an Intel Celeron N2815 processor which is one of the better dual core Atom processors available. The processor can be clocked up to 2.13 GHz on turbo, providing enough processing power for simple to advanced applications. The laptop also comes bundled with an Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge), which provides decent enough graphics. Those looking to play high end games, however, should not expect much from this graphic card. It is sufficient for playing high quality videos.

The 15.4" screen features a resolution of 1366 by 768. The resolution is not impressive for a screen that size. Most laptops nowadays come with at least that resolution. It provides a good enough display, but there is much room for improvement. However, a main feature of this laptop is its weight of 2.1 kilograms. It is lighter than most 15” laptops out there and can be used as a heavier alternative to replace tablets while having good enough specifications to replace a desktop. In conclusion, the Asus X551MA is a good laptop for your everyday use. It should not be expected to run high requirement applications with great performance.
