Asus - X555LA-SI30202G 15.6 Laptop / Intel Core i3 / 6GB Memory Reviews

9 Reasons For

Good Brand

Asus has good average ratings for its medium processor core notebook PCs as well as across its entire laptop range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This notebook PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on laptops of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Price Drop of £60.00

The price of the X555LA dropped by £60.00 in the last month.

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of laptops of this age and spec range from 16GB to 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB. When compared to other notebook PCs that were released one year ago that we have assessed, the total storage capacity of the Asus X555LA of 1,000 gigabyte is one of the biggest.

There are a number of other 1TB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available that you might also want to consider including cheaper portable PCs such as the Acer Aspire E5-573, or the Toshiba Satellite S50-B (£377.00).

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The Asus X555LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most notebook PCs of a similar type and age to it. This portable PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The memory clock speeds supported by processor of all laptops that were launched around the same time as the X555LA ranges from 133MHz (worst) to 1,866MHz (best).

Chart Edit

Has a Full-Size Keyboard

The Asus X555LA has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as the X555LA.

We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the Asus F555LA (£393.66), and the Lenovo T450 (£392.18) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared all the other laptops which also have a full-size keyboard to this notebook PC and we think the Acer Extensa EX2510 (£399.99) is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

The Asus X555LA has a front camera, as do most of the other laptops of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other laptops with a front camera currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the Asus F555LA (£393.66).

It is worth also looking at alternative laptops which also have a front camera including the Acer Extensa EX2510 (£399.99), or the HP EliteBook 850 (£396.16).

Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity

The smallest hard drive capacity of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X555LA is 5GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 690GB. With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus X555LA has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst notebook PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

802.11n WiFi Standard

This portable PC has an 802.11g|802.11b|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently found WiFi standard on portable PCs of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Only Not Supported HD Type

The HD type of this notebook PC is Not supported, which is typical of many comparable spec portable PCs that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year. 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.

There are a number of alternative laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might want to look at including the Satellite C50-B (£349.99), or the Satellite Pro A50-C both from Toshiba or the Lenovo E50-80 (£370.84) which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a laptop with a better storage medium then you might also want to look at the Lenovo X250 (SSD and cheaper) or the Asus UX301LA (£490.00) (SSD and higher rated).

Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

This notebook PC has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is typical of many portable PCs of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Internal Memory

The Asus X555LA has one of the smaller internal memory (only 4 gigabytes) amongst notebook PCs of this age. The smallest internal memory of notebook PCs of a similar spec and age to the X555LA is 2GB and the biggest is 16GB.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 4GB internal memory portable PCs currently available including a cheaper laptop such as the Toshiba Satellite C50-B (£349.99) or you might consider a higher scoring laptop such as the HP 350 G2 (£347.95).

If you want a portable PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the Asus X555LA (£369.99) (8GB and cheaper), or the Toshiba Satellite Pro A50-C (8GB and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Two Battery Cells

The Asus X555LA is a two battery cell count laptop.

Chart Edit

Only Intel Core I3-5xxx Processor Family

The Asus X555LA has an Intel Core i3-5xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family found on most laptops of this spec and age. Across all notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the X555LA the processor family ranges from AMD E (worst) to Intel Core i7-4xxx (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Small Battery Capacity

With a battery capacity of only 37 watt-hours, the Asus X555LA has a quite small battery capacity compared to most of the other notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the X555LA. Comparable spec laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the X555LA have battery capacities of between 23Wh and 120Wh.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

The Asus X555LA does not have a touch sensitive screen, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec portable PCs that were released around the same time as the X555LA also do not have a touch sensitive screen.

We think you might also be interested in other laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Asus UX301LA (£490.00) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory

The Asus X555LA has a quite small maximum internal memory (only 8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the X555LA. Medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the X555LA have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 32GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 14GB.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The Asus X555LA is a one USB 2.0 port notebook PC.

Chart Edit

Thick

With a height of 25.8 millimeters, the Asus X555LA is quite thick compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the X555LA. The heights of similar spec notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the X555LA range from 11mm to 2,400mm, and the average height is 27mm.

Chart Edit

Only 4 Bluetooth Version

This laptop supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is typical of many notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

4 Other reasons to consider the Asus X555LA

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Asus released the X555LA.

Average Processor Clock Speed

The Asus X555LA has a fairly standard processor clock speed (2.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec laptops that were released around the same time as the X555LA.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2.1GHz processor clock speed laptops currently available including a cheaper portable PC such as the Medion Akoya E6415 (£329.99) or you might consider a better rated portable PC such as the HP 350 G2 (£347.95).

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Asus X555LA (£369.99) (2.2GHz), or the Lenovo Z51-70 (2.2GHz) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Screen Size

The Asus X555LA has a pretty typical screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the X555LA.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 15.6" laptops currently available including the Toshiba Satellite C50-B (£349.99), or the HP 350 (£335.75) which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a notebook PC with a bigger screen size then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire E5-772 (17.3"), or the Lenovo Z70-80 (17.3") which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Weight

At 2.3 kilograms, the Asus X555LA has a relatively standard weight compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the X555LA.

We compared this laptop to all the other 2.3kg heavy portable PCs and we think the X555LA (£369.99), and the F555LA (£393.66) both from Asus which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you are not bothered about having a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Asus X555LA (£444.00) (2.3kg).
