Bad points:
it is the worst laptop i have ever seen. very plastic look and feel. windows 8 was a worst experience. some times it takes more than an hour just for automatic upgrades, mouse pad is very bad and browsers crashes a lot. I would recommend to buy something better with little more price instead of buying this because it is cheap.

Andy, Manchester General home user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight and large screen size.

Startup and shutdown speeds.
Bad points:
Windows 8 is awful, took quite a while to get used to. Still not too impressed with it. Will hopefully be updated with a service pack soon.

Touch pad had a few functions for windows 8 like zoom in and out, has a mind of its own sometimes.

Manufacturer's Description

Enter a world of efficient and fast home computing with the Asus X501A-XX514H 15.6” Laptop.

Ready for Windows 8

The X501A comes preinstalled with the revolutionary Windows 8 operating system. Packed full of intuitive apps, it gives you the information that’s important to you whenever you need it.

With Live Tiles, your applications update in real time, so whether you love to social network or need to keep up to date with the news, there’s an app to keep you current in Windows 8.

Windows 8 has been specially designed to be less demanding on your computer’s performance, so not only will it load from sleep quicker, it also helps to improve battery life, letting you work uninterrupted for longer.

The X501A is powered by an intelligent 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3217U, a processor that features multithreading. Multithreading allows the i3-3217U to deal with up to four processes at once, making for a far quicker and responsive computing experience. Intel SpeedStep® allows the i3-3217U to perform well without increased power consumption, providing more efficient processing.

As most software and files are now available to download over the internet, the X501A doesn’t come with a DVD drive. This keeps the chassis far thinner than normal laptops, making the X501A the perfect laptop for travelling as well as using around the house or office.

Convenient computing

Instant On allows the X501A to wake from sleep in just 2 seconds, giving you instant access to your digital life as soon as you need it.

Once it’s on, the 3.5 hours battery life allows you to work wirelessly for longer, letting you make the most of the built-in WiFi connectivity.

The days of tinny laptop speakers are long gone. Combined with Sonicmaster Lite technology, the Altec Lansing speakers give excellent sound quality no matter what you’re listening to.

Stay cool

The X501A features Asus Ice Cool Technology that’s designed to keep the palm rests and other important parts of the laptop cool. By intelligently placing components around the case, the points that you touch most often won’t get hot, keeping you computing in comfort for as long as you require.

Connectivity

With the three conveniently placed USB ports connecting your memory sticks and external hard drives is simple. Two of these ports are USB 3.0, connections that provide the fastest transfer available between external devices that lets you back up and transfer your files quicker than ever before.

An HDMI port allows the X501A to be connected up to any HD TV or monitor, giving you your favourite media, in full HD, on a bigger screen.

The integrated microphone and webcam let you keep in touch with loved ones wherever you may find yourself. With the excellent portability of the X501A, anywhere’s possible.
