Intel Core I5-3xxx Processor Family

The Asus X550CA has an Intel Core i5-3xxx processor family which is better than most portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. Most comparable spec portable PCs that are a similar age to it have an Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family. The processor family of all laptops of this type and age ranges from Intel Core i7-6xxx (worst) to Intel Core i7-3xxx (best).

If the processor family of this laptop is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Apple Macbook Pro Mid 2014 Retina (£1,999.00) (Intel Core i7) which is also higher rated.

4 Bluetooth Version

This portable PC supports a 4.0 LE Bluetooth version, which is typical of many similar spec portable PCs that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Big Processor Cache

The processor caches of similar spec laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the X550CA range from 2MB to 3MB, and the average processor cache is 2.3MB. The processor cache of the Asus X550CA of 3 megabytes is one of the biggest amongst notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as the X550CA.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on notebook PCs that came out around the same time as it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

If you would prefer a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the DELL Precision M3800 (Hybrid-HDD+SSD and higher rated).

Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

This laptop has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on notebook PCs of a similar type and age to it.

We compared all the other notebook PCs that have a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels to this laptop and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Chromebook 11 2955u (£204.98) is also worth considering.
