Display and Design
The Asus X55C-SX161D arrives with a HD LED backlit Glare display that comes with extra brightness and vibrancy to provide rich experience while playing media files but can be too stressful for your eyes if you work for a long period of time. The 15.6-inch panel features a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels.
It is housed in a 31.9mm thick black colored body which has a weight of 2.45kg and may pose some problems in case you need to carry it for long.
Processor and OS
At the heart of the device there is a 2.4GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core 2020M processor from the 2nd generation series and sitting on the HM70 Express chipset. It is supported by a mere 2GB DDR3 RAM which is expandable up to 6GB. It manages rich graphics with the built in Intel HD GPU. It comes preloaded with DOS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Asus X55C-SX161D has been spotted with a VGA webcam and meets the storage demands of the user with a typical 500GB SATA hard disk. What is really surprising is the presence of a high speed 8X SuperMulti DVD Drive having dual layer support which can be used for transferring data through disks instantly. The Altec Lansing speakers powered by Sonic Master Lite software provide rich and crisp sound.
Battery and Connectivity
The Asus X55C-SX161D is packed with a 6 cell Li-ion battery which claims to deliver uninterrupted service for a maximum period of 3 hours. The connectivity package installed in the notebook comprises of features like Bluetooth v4.0, WLAN, Gigabit Ethernet, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 USB 3.0 slot, VGA port, HDMI out and 2-in-1 card reader.


The Asus X55C-SX161D has been built for those who need a laptop simply for meeting their basic computing needs and are ready to bear with poor performance without spending much. It impresses with its 8X optical drive, good connectivity options and powerful speakers but lacks a good RAM and any preloaded OS.

    Overall: I havent bought from flipkart(though i m fan of it) as local store offered same price with EMI offer without credit card.. but this review is for fellow buyers WHY ASUS? * cost to feature efficiency * As old as dell(only 5 years younger, 1989 estb).So good service availability. * Alltech Lansing speakers which provide high sound with good clarity. No need to buy USB portable speakers. ABOUT LAPTOP:- * Glossy finish. clear Display clarity just like HP and samsung and Dell * Smart gesture keypad * HD camera. video recording at 640*480 which is good for HQ video calling * Comparitively slim(only 15.6" models) than other brands in this price range. * Instant ON in 5 seconds. ** Good battery backup in windows 8. 7 hours on normal office work with minimal brightness. 3-4 hrs on avg brightness watchinng 720p movie. * No heating issue even after gaming for 3 hours. * Also installed UBUNTU 13.04. runing v smooth and got 8 hrs back up. *I run antivirus deep scan (bitdefender), watched 720P video in vlc, 480P youtube video, blogging simutaneously without lagging (Thanx to power gear technology). SX078D vs SX161D? * Power efficent than 078D. so goood battery backup. * 3rd generation dual core. * But 078D won in gaming. It runs lastest gaming in 720P better than SX161D * Google search sandybridge vs Ivy bridge and 2nd gen vs 3rd gen for more detailed differences CONS:- * Poor gaming. unable to play farcry3 at 720P but smooth in v low resolutions.But played games up to 2010 at 720P smooth. * Speakers are below.So you have to place lappy so that there should be some space between it and ground. * Only 2 USB ports, which are adjacent. so unable to manage both USB data card and USB mouse/ pendrive simultaneously. So better buy a slim pendrive along with this lappy. Conclusion: If you want for all rounder, want good battery backup and not a hardcore gaming fan, blindly go for SX161D. If you are student who plays all the lastest games like CODMW3, FARCRY3,etc @720P go for SX078D. I strongly recommend asus than any other brand in this price range. Hope my review helpfull

    Overall: I am using this product for about a month or over. I would like to mention first that any laptop (Especially, Pentium lower ranges) will perform a lot better if you provide 4GB RAM. Now, PROS: 1) 3rd gen PDC, which in this price range is NOT available (3rd gen cpu are having better thermal usages, faster processors and better graphic advantages than 2nd Gen. So if you want to buy post Jul 13, at least buy 3rd Gen as the 4th Gen is already arriving and 2nd will be obsoleted by maximum a year). 2) DDR3 1600 MHz RAM, which you could not found in many other lap till 30K. Most of them provides 1333MHz. 3) Good screen size and resolution, display is better than HP laptop (I own a HP also). 4) Bigger Touch-pad for very ease of use. I haven't seen this much bigger touch-pad in this ranges laptop. 5) Presence of NUMPAD is a big advantage, especially to me who uses numeric keys at 20% times. 6) Speakers are reasonable and louder than usual, audible at quite places or headphone is best. 7) Icecool technology really works, I have used it 7 hrs at a stretch at no heating component I felt. CONS: 1) The biggest and may be a deal breaker that this has got ONLY ONE RAM SLOT. So, if you want too, you can't put an additional ram but you have to remove the stock one and put a whole 4GB again as new. (1 Star less for this one) Overall, it's a fantastic deal at 22K. Put a RAM and/or SSD if you want to make it a superfast laptop, otherwise, just deal with it since it's more than a VFM at 22K. Note: It won't provide any freebies or backpack, but that's ok when you saw the build quality. Also, the glossy surface/fingertip attraction seems no issue to people since I don't fancy it as tab or so. Thnx for reading, do research a lot before buying, no matter what model you are buying.
