Reviews for the Asus X554LJ-XX002D
Source: Laptop Media
While the design is mostly a subjective opinion and it’s hard to make a good assessment on the matter, we kind of liked how the notebook looks. It’s clean, strict and features the usual design signature we’re used with seeing on an ASUS machine. On the other hand, the build quality left us with mixed feelings due to the not so sturdy lid and keyboard. Both sink a lot under pressure so leaving heavy objects on top of the laptop isn’t advisable.

As for the hardware, we liked that ASUS has managed to include a higher-tier CPU (Intel Core i3-5010U) and GPU (GeForce 920M) – both part of the new Broadwell and Maxwell families given the price. Some notebooks are even shipping with Pentium processors, so better all-around hardware than the competition is at hand here. As for the battery life, we are more than satisfied. The readings we got from the battery tests indicate that you can rely on the notebook to keep running for longer periods of time without the need of charging.
