Reviews for the Asus X555LA-XX053D

60% Asus X555LA review
Source: Expert Reviews English Archive.org version
In the end, the Asus X555LA's shortcomings are to be expected for a laptop with such a low price. If you have modest demands and want to spend around £300, it's a great Windows-powered choice. Toshiba's Chromebook 2 is a viable alternative, costing £50 less with a Full HD display, if you don't mind being restricted to Google's Chrome OS.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

4030U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz without Turbo Boost support. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» 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.
