Reviews for the Asus X555LA-XX053D

60% Asus X555LA review
Source: Expert Reviews English
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.
