The Asus X555LD has one of the bigger screen sizes (15.6 inches) amongst few processor core portable PCs of this age. The smallest screen size of notebooks of a comparable type and age to the X555LD is 10" and the biggest is 18".
We compared all the other 15.6" laptops to this portable PC and we think the HP 250 (£219.99) which have a better Rating; or the HP 250 (£369.97), and the Acer Aspire V3 which are cheaper are also worth considering.
If this few processor core portable PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Asus X751LDV (17.3" and higher rated), or the Toshiba Satellite C70D-B (17.3" and higher rated); or the Acer Aspire E5 (17.3" and cheaper).
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The Asus X555LD has a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other similar spec notebooks that have been on the market for around the same time as the X555LD which do not have a full-size keyboard.
We think you might also be interested in different notebooks with a full-size keyboard including the HP 15 which have a better Rating; or the Inspiron 15 3537, or the Inspiron 15 (£252.28) both from DELL which are cheaper.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other notebooks that are more than a year old, the Asus X555LD has a front camera.
We think you might also be interested in different notebooks with a front camera including a cheaper portable PC such as the Inspiron 15 3537, or the Inspiron 15 (£252.28) both from DELL.
We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs with a front camera and we think the Toshiba Satellite C70-B are also worth considering.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This laptop has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many few processor core portable PCs that are a similar age to it.
L3 Processor Cache
This portable PC has a L3 processor cache, which is the most commonly found processor cache on similar spec notebooks that are older than a year.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This portable PC has 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n WiFi standards, which is typical of many notebooks of this age and type.

5 Reasons Against
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This notebook has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most frequently found display resolution on similar spec portable PCs that are one year old.
We compared all the other laptops that have a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels to this laptop and we think the HP 15 which have a better Rating; or the HP Chromebook 14 which are cheaper are also worth considering.
If the display resolution of this laptop is not high enough for you then you might want to also look at the Acer Aspire E5 (1600 x 900,1920 x 1080 and cheaper); or the Lenovo Yoga (£438.99) (1920 x 1080 and higher rated).
Only Two Battery Cells
The Asus X555LD is a two battery cell count laptop. Most of the other comparable spec notebooks that have been available for more than a year have between two and eight battery cells.
Small Battery Capacity
The smallest battery capacity of few processor core portable PCs that have been around for a similar time to the X555LD is 23Wh, the biggest is 97Wh, and the average battery capacity is 49Wh. With a battery capacity of only 37 watt-hours, the Asus X555LD has one of the smaller battery capacities amongst few processor core portable PCs of this age.
Only One USB 2.0 Port
The Asus X555LD is a one USB 2.0 port portable PC.
+2 More reasons against
Across all the notebooks of a comparable type and age to the X555LD the widths range from 19mm to 430mm, and the average width is 350mm. With a width of 382 millimeters, the Asus X555LD is one of the wider laptops that were launched around the same time as the X555LD amongst few processor core portable PCs of this age.
8 Other reasons to consider the Asus X555LD
Only OK Brand
Whilst Asus is one of the ok notebook brands according to average expert and user reviews, Asus has excellent ratings specifically for its few processor core portable PCs.
Over a Year Old
It was over a year ago when this laptop was released.
Intel Core I3-4xxx Processor Family
The Asus X555LD has an Intel Core i3-4xxx processor family which is better than the Intel Core i5-4xxx processor family found on most notebooks of a similar age and spec to it.
It is worth also looking at different laptops that have an Intel Core i3-4xxx processor family including a higher Rating product such as the HP 250, or the Asus X751LDV.
If the processor family of this few processor core portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the HP ProBook 650 (£450.00) (Intel Core i5-4xxx and higher rated).
+6 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the Asus X555LD has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the X555LD.
We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity notebooks to this portable PC and we think a cheaper notebook such as the Acer Aspire V3, and the Fujitsu LifeBook AH532 are also worth considering.
With a weight of 2,300 grams, the Asus X555LD has a pretty typical weight compared to most of the other similar spec notebooks that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X555LD.
If you are not concerned about having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the MSI CR61 3M (2.3kg and cheaper), or the HP Pavilion 15 (2.3kg and cheaper).
Average Internal Memory
At 4 gigabytes, the Asus X555LD has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec portable PCs that are older than a year.
We compared all the other 4GB internal memory portable PCs to this laptop and we think the HP 250 (£369.97), and the Acer Aspire V3 which are cheaper; or the HP 250 (£219.99) which have a better Rating are also worth considering.
Portable PCs with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the Acer Aspire E5-571 (£424.75) (8GB).
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 1.7 gigahertz, the Asus X555LD has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core portable PCs that have been on the market for more than a year.
We compared this laptop to all the other 1.7GHz processor clock speed laptops and we think a cheaper product such as the DELL Inspiron 15 (£252.28), and the HP 250 (£369.97) are also worth considering.
If this Asus portable PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to also look at the Lenovo Yoga (£438.99) (1.9GHz and higher rated); or the Acer Aspire E5 (1.9GHz and cheaper).
HDD Storage Medium
This notebook has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many notebooks that were released 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.
We compared all the other notebooks that have an HDD storage media to this notebook and we think the Toshiba Satellite C70D-B which have a better Rating; or the Asus X553MA which are cheaper are also worth considering.
If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to also look at the Lenovo Yoga (£438.99) (Hybrid-HDD and higher rated).
