40% Asus X553MA review
Source: Expert Reviews English Archive.org version
In our battery tests, the system lasted 4h 32m, which isn't terrible although we'd like to see a bit more. The charger itself is pleasingly small without a large, heavy power brick, so the 2.2kg laptop is easier to carry around without any additional bulk. With its flexible chassis, poor display and slow performance, the X553MA isn't a great choice despite its low price. If you can push your budget further, the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 is a far superior laptop.
