7 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Reviews for Its Portable PCs

We checked 2,723 owner and expert reviews for Asus portable PCs and found that on average Asus has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Asus has good reviews specifically within its medium processor core notebook PCs range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Screen Size

The screen sizes of medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the X552CL range from 10" to 18", and the average screen size is 15". The Asus X552CL has one of the bigger screen sizes (15.6 inches) amongst comparable spec laptops of this age.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 15.6" notebook PCs and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the DELL Vostro 3560[plb_1412318_price], and the HP ProBook 650 G1[plb_2059085_price] is also worth considering.

If this Asus portable PC screen size is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo G70-70[plb_3375260_price] (17.3") which is also cheaper.

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

Comparable spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the X552CL have total storage capacity of between 1GB and 1.5TB. At 750 gigabytes, the Asus X552CL has a fairly big total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the X552CL.

If this notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the DELL Inspiron 15R[plb_2162535_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the Lenovo G500[plb_2248852_price] (1TB and cheaper).

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other laptops of a similar spec and age to the X552CL, the Asus X552CL has a front camera.

We compared all the other laptops with a front camera to this portable PC and we think the Acer Travelmate TMP253-M[plb_1476372_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer Travelmate TMP253-M[plb_1481808_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

There are a number of other notebook PCs which also have a front camera that you might also want to consider including the HP 15[plb_2656558_price].

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

The Asus X552CL does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the X552CL which have a full-size keyboard.

It is worth also looking at other notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the Acer Travelmate TMP253-M[plb_1476372_price] or the Acer Travelmate TMP253-M[plb_1481808_price].

We compared this portable PC to all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the DELL Vostro 3560[plb_1412318_price] is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the EliteBook 840 G1[pl_1620817_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the ProBook 650 G1[pl_2059085_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from HP.

This laptop audio system, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

Like most of the other laptops of a comparable age and spec to the X552CL, the Asus X552CL does not have a touch sensitive screen.

We compared this notebook PC to all the other laptops with a touch sensitive screen and we think the ProBook 450[pl_2376206_price], or the EliteBook 820 G1[pl_2305898_price] both from HP or the DELL Inspiron 14 3000[plb_2443627_price] is also worth considering.

Average Internal Memory

At 6 gigabytes, the Asus X552CL has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years.

If this portable PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Asus X553MA[plb_2396589_price] (1.86GHz), or the Lenovo X1 Carbon[plb_2843838_price] (1.9GHz) which is also cheaper.
