Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Burst Frequency

The Asus X553MA has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other laptops of a comparable age and spec to the X553MA.

There are a number of alternative portable PCs with a full-size keyboard currently available that you might want to consider including the DELL Precision M2800[plb_2740924_price] which is cheaper.

There are a number of other notebook PCs which also have a full-size keyboard which you might also want to consider including the Zbook 15 G2[pl_2966265_price], or the ZBook[pl_2497296_price] both from HP.

Has a Front Camera

The Asus X553MA has a front camera. Most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the X553MA also have a front camera.

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the Zbook 15 G2[pl_2966265_price], or the ZBook[pl_2497296_price] both from HP or the Toshiba C55[plb_2992854_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate

This laptop Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently found Ethernet LAN data rate on laptops that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The widths of notebook PCs of this age and type range from 260mm to 430mm. When compared to other similar spec laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the X553MA, the width of the Asus X553MA of only 280 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

Chart Edit

15 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Maximum Processor Memory Bandwidth

Many processor core portable PCs that were released around the same time as the X553MA have maximum processor memory bandwidths of between 10GB/s and 77GB/s, and the average maximum processor memory bandwidth is 25GB/s. The Asus X553MA has a fairly slow maximum processor memory bandwidth (only 21.32 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other laptops of a comparable age and type to the X553MA.

Chart Edit

Very Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of laptops of this spec and age range from 840MHz to 1,400MHz. The Asus X553MA has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 896 megahertz) compared to most of the other many processor core portable PCs that were released around the same time as the X553MA.

Chart Edit

Only Two Displays Supported by On-Board Grap

The Asus X553MA is a laptop that uses two displays supported by on-board grap.

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.

It may also be worth considering one of the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Acer Aspire ES1[plb_2688065_price] which is cheaper.
