If you are looking for a laptop that comes at an affordable price and capable of exhibiting modest performance only, you can shortlist the ASUS X553MA-SX376B. It sports pretty mediocre features with the major cause of concern being the average processor. The latest windows OS is a bonus in this price.
Display and Design
The ASUS X553MA-SX376B carries a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit LCD display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is encased in a black coloured outfit which looks stylish with its hairline spin finish on the lid. It has a thickness of 25.3mm and a weight of 2.2kg.
Processor and OS
Under the hood, the ASUS X553MA-SX376B is packed with a 2.1GHz Intel Pentium quad-core N3540 processor. It is paired with a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which runs at 1,600MHz and is further expandable up to 8GB via two DIMM ports. Rich videos and games are managed by the integrated Intel HD GPU. It sails on latest 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The ASUS X553MA-SX376B is armed with a simple webcam and inbuilt microphone to take care of the video calling needs of the user. The 500GB SATA hard disk running at 5,400rpm provides sufficient space for creating a library of files. It also gets a DVD RW Drive so that you can easily transfer data via disks.
Battery and Connectivity
Keeping the ASUS X553MA-SX376B juiced up for a fair period of time without any interruption is a non removable 2 cell Li-Po battery. From the networking and connectivity point of view, we have options like Ethernet port, WLAN, HDMI out, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0, one USB 3.0 slot and one USB 2.0 slot.
