Asus X551CA Laptop

- Windows 8 Pro or other editions available
- Stylish notebook for users to express their individuality
- True 2-second Instant on and up to Intel® Core™ i3 processor
- Enjoy high quality audio courtesy of ASUS SonicMaster technology

Incredible Performance

Value-packed with all the essentials, the X Series reinvents your daily computing experience. Whether you are using it for work or for fun, this is an ideal machine for both productive computing and entertainment. It features up to an Intel® Core™ processor and Instant on that resumes your computer from sleep mode in 2 seconds and USB 3.0 for 10 times faster data transfer speed. ASUS X Series gives you everything you need for a truly satisfying multitask computing and multimedia experience.

Video calls in crystal clarity

The X series features a 720p HD camera with a highly sensitive sensor that performs well in diverse light conditions, from lightly lit room to the bright outdoors. Now you can reach out to your love ones or anyone else while looking great.

Lifelike colors

With ASUS Splendid Technology

Exclusive Splendid technology delivers vibrant visuals to satisfy the most demanding viewing standards. It fine-tunes display properties based on application, adjusting color gamut and accuracy. The results are more vibrant colors and pristine image quality in all applications, from movies to photos.

Multi-touch made easy

The X Series' multi-point touchpad comes with Smart Gesture technology that offers finger-tip natural computing. It delivers naturally simple but intricate interaction, with scrolling and right clicking for access to advanced functions without a mouse. Smart Gesture technology supports a range of touch commands like pinch zoom in/out, scroll, and tap that simulate Windows 8 touchscreen functions. The touchpad is in ratio as the display for more precise pointer control and we've made it large to leave plenty of room to use Windows 8 gestures.

Incredible Sound

On most notebooks, all sound frequencies originate from small onboard speakers. The resulting audio comes from a single source and lacks distinctiveness. Like other notebooks in the ASUS range, the X Series comes equipped with SonicMaster technology and ASUS AudioWizard to bring you high fidelity audio. Experience omnidirectional sound and hear each individual instrument's nuances with the X Series.

You're talking rubbish going off my own experience, I had an Asus laptop, used it quite heavily for 3 years until I upgraded to a newer model, it was as good when I got rid of it as it was when I first got it.

Asus laptops are terrible IME, had a few and all have developed serious faults. Even on premium laptops the build quality is awful, might look OK but not durable at all. In fact, almost every Asus product (including PC components and tablets) I've owned has failed/developed major faults within the first 2 years. Asus support are also beyond awful to deal with, look up reviews. I won't waste my money on them any more.

Just so you all know, this comes with an integrated battery which is not removable. This is a pain if you need a new battery or when your laptop freezes and you can't turn it off/reboot until the battery runs out.

How does this compare for a basic laptop

I'm not because I sell them where I work. Cheap Asus = crap

X401/X501 are abysmal for example

Holding down the power button for 6 seconds or so usually does the trick

I had the X501 for 3 years, didn't have one serious problem with it

Just make sure if you are updating to 8.1, you make a backup disk for win 8. I've just started working for asus and if 8.1 screws up the recovery partition (it's terrible), they'll make you buy recovery media.

Get rid of windows 8 and install mint or ubuntu and would make a great deal.

I bought this 3 weeks ago when it was £255 I am impressed with its performance but the keyboard is minging and and flexes up and down the track pad is frustrating.

I have posted it to my brother in new zealand as they charge silly prices for IT over there. While I had it it was ok :{

I concur with the poor ASUS remarks. My laptop is now two & a half years old. I had to have two screens replaced within the first few months & when I asked for a new one I was refused both by the store & ASUS. After the second screen replacement it came back scratched. That peed me off as I keep all my goods in pristine condition. The after sales service was amongst the worst I have ever dealt with. They were in total denial of a serious problem with their products that was all over the internet. Now my laptop has developed a charging fault. The connection on the side has to be wriggled for it to charge, again a manufacturing fault that is all over the internet. Never again.
