Pocket friendly with decent specs
Display and Outfit
The ASUS X552EA-DH41 poses a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display which offers comfortable viewing experience with a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The simply designed black coloured outfit has a thickness of 27.9mm and tips the scale at 2.3kg.
Processor and OS
At the heart of the device, there is a 1.5GHz AMD quad-core A4-5000 processor which doesnÂt offer the same performance as Intel CPUs but is good for basic computing. It works in combination with a regular 4GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1,600MHz and is further expandable via two DIMM slots. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8 OS which is commendable considering its low price.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The ASUS X552EA-DH41 accounts for the video calling needs of the user with a webcam placed above the display. The 500GB SATA hard disk running at 5,400rpm offers plenty of space for storing numerous files of all kinds. The presence of a SuperMulti DVD Drive allows you to load files on disks and retrieve them when needed. For multimedia purposes, the laptop is armed with stereo speakers.
Battery and Connectivity
Packed with a 4 cell Li-ion battery, the ASUS X552EA-DH41 is rated to deliver undisturbed service for up to 4 hours. Moving to the connectivity and networking section, the laptop supports features like WLAN, two high speed USB 3.0 slots, HDMI out, VGA port and digital media reader.
The ASUS X552EA-DH41 is a pocket friendly laptop equipped with AMD processor and suitable for basic computing. It has a standard RAM, 500GB hard disk and a powerful optical drive. Another notable features is the reliable battery backup. The lack of Bluetooth connectivity is very disappointing even at this price.
