7 Reasons For
Asus is one of the better rated laptop manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and Asus also has good ratings for its medium processor core notebook PCs.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This portable PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar type and age to it.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the X555LA is 16GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB. The Asus X555LA has a quite big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as the X555LA.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1TB total storage capacity notebook PCs currently available including the DELL Inspiron 15[plb_2790626_price], or the Toshiba Satellite S50-B[plb_2765612_price] which is cheaper.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Asus X555LA supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most notebook PCs of this spec and age. Most medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The memory clock speeds supported by processor of all laptops of this spec and age ranges from 133MHz (worst) to 1,866MHz (best).
Quite Big Screen Size
The smallest screen size of laptops of this spec and age is 11" and the biggest is 18". The Asus X555LA has a quite big screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other laptops of this spec and age.
We compared this notebook PC to all the other 15.6" laptops and we think cheaper laptops such as the Toshiba Satellite C50-B[plb_2256586_price] is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a laptop with a bigger screen size then you might want to consider the DELL Inspiron 17 5758[plb_2942103_price] (17.3"), or the Lenovo G70-80[plb_2969809_price] (17.3").
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other portable PCs that have been on the market for more than a year, the Asus X555LA has a front camera.
It is worth considering alternative laptops which also have a front camera including the S540[pl_2781844_price], the G70-80[pl_2969809_price], or the X250[pl_2979047_price] all from Lenovo.
+2 More reasons for
802.11n WiFi Standard
This portable PC has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most commonly found WiFi standard on laptops that have been around for a similar time to it.
10 Reasons Against
Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The Asus X555LA has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 900 megahertz) amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. Medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago have on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of between 750MHz and 1,300MHz.
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Asus X555LA does not have a full-size keyboard. Most of the other similar spec laptops that came out around the same time as the X555LA do have a full-size keyboard.
It is worth also looking at alternative portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard including the S540[pl_2781844_price], or the G70-80[pl_2969809_price] both from Lenovo or the DELL Latitude 12 E5250[plb_2854767_price].
Only HDD Storage Medium
This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many notebook PCs of this type and age. 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 other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available that you might want to consider including the Toshiba Satellite C50-B[plb_2256586_price], or the Asus X555LA[plb_2947788_price] which is cheaper.
If the storage medium of this Asus laptop is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo T450[plb_2899072_price] (SSD and cheaper).
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This portable PC has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is typical of many medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as it.
+7 More reasons against

The Asus X555LA is a two battery cell count laptop.
Quite Small Battery Capacity

The average battery capacity of medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the X555LA is 46Wh, and the battery capacities range from 23Wh to 120Wh.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Asus X555LA does not have a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the X555LA also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
Other laptops which also have a touch sensitive screen that you might also want to look at include the Inspiron 15[pl_2790626_price], or the Inspiron 15[pl_2447697_price] both from DELL.
Quite Small Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of only 8 gigabytes, the Asus X555LA's maximum internal memory is one of the smallest amongst medium processor core notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the X555LA. The maximum internal memory of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for around the same time as the X555LA range from 2GB to 32GB.
At 25.8 millimeters, the Asus X555LA is fairly thick compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year.

Average Processor Clock Speed
At 2.2 gigahertz, the Asus X555LA has a relatively standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other laptops of a similar age and spec to the X555LA.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2.2GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the Acer Aspire E5[plb_2736268_price].
If this Asus notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Latitude 14 E5450[pl_2794147_price] (2.3GHz), the Latitude 12 E5250[pl_2854767_price] (2.3GHz), or the Latitude 14 E5450[pl_2873252_price] (2.3GHz) all from DELL.
Intel Core I5-5xxx Processor Family
This portable PC has an Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family, which is the most frequently found processor family on medium processor core notebook PCs that are a similar age to it.
+3 Other reasons

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 2.3kg heavy portable PCs currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the HP 350[plb_2746651_price].
If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the HP ProBook 650[plb_2589709_price] (2.3kg).
Average Internal Memory
The Asus X555LA has a pretty standard internal memory (6 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec laptops that have been on the market for more than a year.
