Simple and affordable
Display and Design
The Asus X550CA-XX348D has been spotted with a 15.6 inch HD LED display offering videos and pictures at the usual resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is encased in a 31.7mm thick body which appears to be a bit chunky but looks classy with its silver grey finish.
CPU and Platform
Under the hood, the Asus X550CA-XX348D is loaded with 1.8GHz Intel Core i3 3217U processor from the third generation series coupled with HM76 Express chipset. The 2GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM isnÂt capable of supporting powerful multitasks efficiently although it can be expanded through the two expandable slots. The laptop wonÂt cause lags in running high resolution games and videos thanks to the Intel HD 400 GPU.
The Asus notebook runs Disk Operating System asking you to install a separate user friendly OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Asus X550CA-XX348D has a webcam on board and provides 500GB of space for storing files through the SATA hard disk. You can use the SuperMulti DVD Drive for transferring data through disks. A chiclet keyboard and a standard touchpad can be spotted as the sole input devices in the laptop. It has stereo speakers with Sonic Master technology.
Battery and Connectivity
To guarantee an uninterrupted power supply for a long period of time on single charge, the laptop features a 4 cell Li-ion battery. Connectivity features equipped in this device include Bluetooth v4.0, Ethernet Gigabit LAN, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, digital media reader, HDMI out, VGA port, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 USB 3.0 port.
The Asus X550CA-XX348D can be bought if you need a notebook to handle simple computing needs without spending much. The 2GB RAM is certainly disappointing. Moreover, it does not have any user friendly software platform. You can of course have a good time while watching movies and playing games on the large HD display.
