Display and Build

The Asus X553MA-XX289B flaunts a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit Slim Glare display which carries a glossy appearance so that you have a rich multimedia experience. However, it can strain your eyes during prolonged usage. It offers a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The black colored outfit carries a simplistic appeal and has a thickness of 25.3 mm and a weight of 2.1 kg.

CPU and OS

Doing the duty on the inside is a 1.8GHz Intel Celeron Quad Core N2930 processor from the 1st generation series. Assisting the CPU is the integrated 2GB DDR3 RAM which is further expandable up to 8GB through the 2 user accessible DIMM slots. For better management of rich graphics, the machine relies on the Intel HD graphics unit. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS which is a big bonus.

Camera, Storage and Multimedia

The Asus X553MA-XX289B is furnished with a webcam positioned in the bezel above the display. It accounts for the storage requirements of the user with a 500GB SATA hard disk operating at 5400 rpm. Powered by SonicFocus technology, the stereo speakers don't disappoint in terms of quality of sound.

Battery and Connectivity

To ensure that it is able to render service for a fair period of time without any interruption, the Asus X553MA-XX289B is packed with a 2 cell Li-ion battery. The networking and connectivity features include VGA port, HDMI out, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, 1 USB 2.0 slot, Ethernet port, 1 USB 3.0 slot and digital media reader.

Verdict

The Asus X553MA-XX289B has been made for people who can't afford to spend much and need a machine only to execute simple computing tasks. The presence of the latest 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS is a huge bonus in this price range. However, you will have to bear with the poor configuration and the glare display.

    Overall: Thanks to flipkart and ws retail for delivering me the product without any damage this is my first laptop to buy via online

    Asus is a best company and trust worthy company guys never hesitate when buying a asus product but the thing is the more money you spend the money you can get.
    now to the product
    good laptop for browsing and watching movies this is the most cheapest laptop where you get a quad core processor and a genuine windows 8.1 full OEM version yes it is genuine activated my Microsoft i saw another customer complaining that no product key dude this is the OEM version manufacturer wont supply but you can find it by tune up utilities software to find your genuine key.
    Processor :- intel celeron quad core clocked @ 1.83ghz turbo boost upto 2.16 ghz yeah good processor for browsing movies medium level gaming and medium level applications can be handled easily buy this celeron dude cant expect more that this for a 18.5k lappy
    RAM- Sorry to say Asus this is gonna be a big problem for people who dont have much knowledge about laptops.This is a entry level laptop so it has to be easy handling laptop but in this laptop its not that case. wait i'll explain you at the end of this paragraph. The manufacturer gives only 2gb ram which is never enough to handle stuff like windows 8.1 + antivirus and other stuffs so surely you need a ram upgrade 2gb is never enough. now coming to the problem there are two problems is this RAM story for this laptop. i'm a desktop laptop service engineer so it was quite easy for me to figure out the solution. this is a huge con for entry level lap
    Problem 1:- you cant access the RAM so easily like you do in other entry level laptops to remove the ram you have to disassemble the whole damn laptop every part should be removed and finally you will find the RAM at the back side of the motherboard. in other words RAM is the last part of this laptop so u have to remove disassemble all the parts so u cant do this due to warranty void issues if u go to service center surely the RAM price will be higher than the other stores and there is a service charge being charged to upgrade RAM. In my case blah blah blah F**K the warranty i dont need it so i went crazy and disassemble the laptop the 3rd day itself :P but guys never disassemble your laptop only if you have experience remember you might damage any sensitive parts and void your warranty

    Problem 2 :- there are 2 ram slots(one used and one unused) Really ?? No you are wrong guys sorry to say there is only one RAM slot so you have to remove the existing 2gb ram and then only you can add another RAM so finally you have to sell that 2 Gb or install it on any other lap you have.

    NOTE: IF you are about to upgrade you RAM u need a DDR3L RAM ""L"" stands for low voltage ram this laptop supports only DDR3L ram @ 1.35volts Upgradable upto 8gb
    OS : Windows 8.1 64bit wow a laptop for 18.5k and you get latest windows 8.1 thats nice
    Battery : here is another con same like RAM the battery is also in-built so u have to tear apart the laptop till the last to access this laptop battery u have to disassemble the whole thing to see the battery
    Man this entry level lappy is build like ultra-book standards only ultrabooks have inbuilt battery and RAM
    Display :- 15.6 HD display yeah thats gooooooooodddddd :)
    Design :- LOVELY slim and sleek design weightless + stylish looking and the chicklet keyboard is a beauty and easy to type
    GAMING :- For 2gb RAM installed you get 1gb of gaming graphics shared memory eventually if you increase your RAM you graphics memory will increase

    Far cry 3
    battlefield 2
    sim city
    GTA san andreas
    NFS undercover
    Ashes Cricket 2009
    all these games works well in Low settings settings
    Overall a good laptop if you just want to watch movies and for browsing but if u need more out of this laptop you must upgrade the RAM to atleast 4gigs
    and forgot to say boot time is just 6seconds very fast laptop when resuming after sleep just 2 seconds
    i've reduced one star due to those RAM issues
    Updated on 28.5.15
    for those who face this problem which charging speed will be slower when battery capacity is above 60% here is the solution go to the official website download the bios update BIOS 210 file save it in a pendrive and update your BIOS those who dont know how to update the bios go watch in u-tube
    OS BACKUP
    u can backup WINDOWS 8.1 from this lappy and use it for recovery purpose when your harddrive gets damaged in future for this you need a software ASUS Backtracker which u can find in asus website,u can backup only using a pendrive 16gb u can also backup your Drivers using seperate 8gb pendrive
