Overall: My friend bought this laptop 'X550CA-XX258D' from a store for Rs 19,990/- last month. I think the K55A and X550 models are look wise the same. But I read in the ASUS website that X550 has slimmer optical drive, different (better & newer) processor & HD webcam (720p).
Coming to the laptop, it runs super silent and is very cool. The keyboard is chiclet type (like macbooks) which is very comfortable to type, the only missing thing is the backlight. The touchpad is very large with multi touch and with no buttons. The button area can also be used as trackpad. Battery backup is around 4-5 hours.
The device has no OS preinstalled, my friend is using windows 8.1 Pro on this laptop which runs fine. Haven't tried gaming coz its mainly used for browsing and watching movies. 720p & 1080p videos works fine on this laptop. For the price I'll definitely recommend this laptop because the build quality is excellent.
