    This review is from: ASUS X551MA-RCLN03 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black ) (Personal Computers)
    This laptop is hard to grade with a star system. There are qualities which are desirable, and some that are very frustrating. I’ve decided to give an account of this computer component by component for those wanting to know a little more.

    This laptop certainly hits a sweet spot – price. Most of its purchasers will be interested in getting a good budget laptop which can handle basic needs. ‘Basic’ here is the key word though. This laptop contains Intel’s Celeron processor, which was not designed to be their marquee chip. Its a cheaper processor, and it definitely shows at times. Even right out of the box, the computer wasn’t necessarily all that quick – not slow, but not fast by any means either. As I just received it, I can’t comment too much on its versatility, but I can’t imagine that it could handle advanced games and video processing all that well. Celeron processors were not designed for this. If you understand this going in it will soften the blow of not having the fastest computer around. (This is very noticeable when transferring via USB – not too sure what is more to blame, but items don’t copy over as quick as I thought.)

    With that said, it should be noted that the 4 GB of RAM are more than sufficient – any slowness is not attributable to that. The computer has run cleanly so far without any hangups, and I’m happy with that.

    The hard drive size is always an issue. The 500 GB advertised is actually about 444 GB out of the box (a common practice in hard drive advertising), and after formatting and operating system space, it was down to about 420 GB (or perhaps even less), and I hadn’t even installed anything on it yet.

    The computer comes equipped with a DVD/CD drive which is a plus (optical drives are fast disappearing from the computer landscape), but with the advent of blu-ray, it makes it seem a bit dated. The optical drive can be a little difficult to open – the button for the release isn’t very sensitive, and the drive itself seems very cheap, even by budget laptop standards. I expect this to be the first thing to break down as the computer ages.

    The operating system it shipped with was Windows 8, and not 8.1 as advertised. Not a big deal for me as I’ve grown accustomed very quickly to it, though you might have some major updating to do once it arrives. For those who haven’t experienced the newest versions of Windows, it is definitely different, but just like with anything else, you will get used to it, so don’t get too angry with it.

    The look of the laptop is a little plain, though the finish on the top of the laptop is very nice. The keyboard is arranged well, but what I find annoying is the sensitivity of some mystery hot keys which whisk me around the various Windows screens – very frustrating when working on a document; you can’t get too involved in a piece of work without hitting some key inadvertently and being taken away to some other screen. The screen is sharp in color and texture though, and presents images and videos very well. The 15+ inch screen is a good size and certainly justifies the purchase even if there isn’t any touch based capabilities.

    All told, this computer is worth it for those who want a solid budget laptop who don’t do anything especially computer intensive. If you’re into that sort of stuff, go for a computer with a more advanced chip.

    I bought this computer for work, easy enough huh? No. Although it is lightweight and I love the keyboard, this computer was a dud. Although I simply wanted to replace it, that wasn’t an Amazon option on this item, now I am out the money and have no laptop. Im sure eventually I will get a refund. When the computer arrived, I read the one pamphlet that came with it and plugged the laptop in. When it was fully charged, I began the task of set up. All went well, the computer was just what I needed. About an hour to an hour and a half later, the screen blipped and the computer shut down. It will not charge. very disappointed.

    I like it because it has full keyboard with numeric pad, has large RAM memory and hard drive capacity, enough for me. Processor is not on the best performance, but for work is enough.
