Reviews for the Asus X55C-DS31

60% ASUS X55C-DS31 15.6-inch
Source: Comp Reviews English
The ASUS X55C remains one of the better priced laptops on the market and they have tried to update a few of the features but a number of the issues that plagued the design still remain. The problem is that most of the competition has either caught up or surpassed ASUS in terms of battery life, peripheral ports or storage.

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.


2.4 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.
