Reviews for the Asus K501LX-NB52
Source: Comp Reviews
Looking for a lighweight 15-inch laptop that offers some solid performance thanks to a solid state drive and a high resolution display? The ASUS K501LX is an amazing value for those that might want more than budget system but still paying $750. The system did make a few compromises in the design that you should be aware of though. After all it may be a high resolution display but it certainly could be better.
