Impressive business oriented gadget
Display and Design
The Asus X550CC-XO029D features a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit with a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is housed in a 24.8 mm thick outfit which has a weight of 2.3 kg. The silver colored outfit looks quite appealing as well.
CPU and OS
Doing the duty on the inside is a 2.7GHz Intel Core i3 processor belonging to the 3rd generation series and sitting on HM76 Express chipset. It is paired with a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM functioning at 1600MHz. With the NVIDIA GeForce GT 720M graphics card under the hood, the machine is capable of handling intensive games and videos without much hassle. It comes with MS DOS which is a bit disappointing.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Asus X550CC-XO029D is armed with a brilliant 0.9MP webcam for guaranteeing smooth handling of high resolution video calls. The presence of 750GB SATA hard disk relieves you of any storage problem. The SuperMulti DVD Drive allows you to store data on disks and retrieve them when required. Powered by SonicMaster, the stereo speakers guarantee rich multimedia experience.
Battery and Connectivity
The Asus X550CC-XO029D is packed with a 4 cell Li-ion battery which is capable of providing up to 5 hours of service on the trot. From the connectivity point of view, the laptop is loaded with features like Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI out, WLAN, VGA port, Ethernet port, digital media reader, 1 USB 3.0 port and 1 USB 2.0 slot.
The Asus X550CC-XO029D offers a host of attractive features at a modest budget. It has the power to deal with standard business tasks smoothly. Other notable features include SuperMulti DVD drive, high speed USB slot, brilliant webcam and 750GB HDD. The sole disappointing thing is the lack of any preloaded OS.
