Model:

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.

Intel HD Graphics (Ivy Bridge): In the mobile Ivy Bridge Celeron and Pentium CPUs integrated processor graphics card. The HD Graphics is the slower, GT1 called, part with less execution units (EUs) and only one texture sampler - compared to the GT2 HD Graphics 4000.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

N2815: Soc with an integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at 1.86 - 2.13 GHz (Turbo) and an Intel HD Graphics GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
