Display and Design
The Asus S56CA-XX056H Ultrabook carries the typical 15.6 inch HD LED backlit display with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a resolution of 1366x768 pixels. Its components are packed in a slim 21mm casing which exhibits a professional as well as personal touch with its superb grey hairline design. The solid body with a strongly attached lid makes the laptop easily portable.
Processor and Platform
The ultrabook relies on the power of a 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 3317U processor loaded on the Mobile HM76 Express chipset from the 3rd generation series. While the 4GB DDR3 RAM assists the CPU in executing fast and smooth multitasking, the Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU accounts for the graphics bit. The notebook gets into action from where you left it from hibernate or sleep modes in just 2 seconds courtesy the Super Hybrid Engine II technology.
The gadget sails on the latest Windows 8 (64 bit) OS which is good for professional or personal needs.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The HD webcam guarantees crystal clear video calls on the go even in low light situations. In order to offer the capacity of a hard disk and the fast performance of an SSD, the device combines a SATA HDD of 750GB with a SSD cache of 24GB. The ASUS SonicMaster Lite technology powering the speakers ensures richer bass and better sounds. The availability of an 8X Super Multi DVD Drive supporting dual layers in such a thin gadget deserves a mention.
Battery and Connectivity
The Asus S56CA-XX056H Ultrabook promises to render an uninterrupted service for a maximum period of 3 hours with the 4 cell Li-ion battery. Connectivity features include Bluetooth v4.0, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port,  VGA port, 2-in-1 card reader, VGA port, HDMI out, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n and Ethernet 10/100/1000 BASE-T.


Built to solve all kinds of business needs properly, the Asus S56CA-XX056H Ultrabook scores well on all fronts. The combination of HDD space and SSD performance gives an edge to this decently priced ultrabook. It packs all the required connectivity options and has a slim design which makes it easily portable.

    Overall: If anyone is looking for a slim affordable notebook then the Asus S56CA is a decent buy Have used it or couple of days now and below are my observations Build Quality For most part the build quality is quite good. The aluminium finish is probably the best thing on a laptop in this price range. It feels and look good. But the black aluminium finish on the top is a fingerprint magnet. And it hard to wipe those fingerprint off the laptop. The screen bezel is made of plastic and that spoils the look of the laptop when the lid is open. Also my laptop has a slight but noticeable gap in the optical drive slot Screen Its a 15.6" 1366x768 screen. Not the sharpest display. I think this is the standard resolution at this price range. But the colors are slight washed and not very accurate. I have seen equivalent samsung laptops with better display. Overall this is a average screen. Performance The i5 3317U is a low voltage processor clocked at 1.7Ghz with TurboBoost upto 2.6Ghz. For normal operations like browsing, movies, music you cant go wrong with this. I never felt there was a lack of processing power. There is no slowdown even while having multiple tabs open while watching HD movies I have not installed too many apps. And the 4gb RAM looks ok for now. The 4gb stick is in one slot, so you can get another 4gb and pop it in if needed There is a 24gb SSD and 750gb 5400 rpm HDD. The SSD acts as cache. The couldn't find any difference in speed due to the SSD. Its as fast as my desktop running on some old HDD Gaming This has got a Intel HD 4000. So i don't expect any games to run on this. You might get some games running at low, low-mid settings. But this laptop is not equipped or intended to be a gaming machine OS Windows 8 has got some steep learning curve. It mght be good for touch devices, but i prefer Win7 over it. There is another version of the laptop with Win 7. Its better to go with that. This also is not Win 8 pro. The upgrade costs Rs 8000. There is no easy way to downgrade to Win 7. With Windows 8 prebuilt computers and notebooks that are deemed "Windows 8 Certified" adhere to certain security protocols on the BIOS level that make installing an OS other than what came with the machine increasingly difficult. And the BIOS on this is lacking a lot of features. So you are stuck with Win 8. I got some apps to get back the start button and got the windows aero theme. EDIT: I did manage to get windows 7 installed. Its so much better now Touchpad and Keypad The touchpad is quite good on this. Initially it was having some issues with single tap. Make sure you update to the latest elan touchpad drivers. All your issues will be solved. It has a keypad with numeric keys. It is not backlit. Key press gives a good tactile feedback. Battery Life It has got a 4cell battery and i could manage around 4 hrs on full charge with medium brightness. Charging is quite quick. Asus Bloatware There is not much of them. Some 6-7 apps. You can uninstall all of them Connectivity Do not have any wifi or bluetooth issues Overall this is pretty good slim laptop. It wont call it an ultrabook because of it weight. It weighs 2.3 kgs which is quite heavy
