The mouse pad feels cheap, and the keyboard isn't great, but compromises have to be made for the price I guess

Patrick, Edgware Often on the move

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good price for a modern laptop with fast processor and full keyboard. Big enough HDD for home use. Enough RAM. Very good display. Very easy setup and wi-fi connection.
Bad points:
Is Windows 8 really that big an improvement over Win7? It just seems to confuse tasks that were standard in XP.

Manufacturer's Description

The ASUS X55C features a matte surface with a classic suit pattern that demonstrates simplicity, realism, and originality.

Exclusive ASUS engineering has created a unique internal layout that keeps heat away from palm rests and from users.
Always below body temperature, palm rests feel cool to the touch, and are therefore more comfortable to use even during long sessions.

Only ASUS notebooks offer you true 2-second instant on resume from sleep or hibernate, cutting out long reboot times and putting you back to work or enjoyment right where you left off. Thanks to ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology, you also get up to 11 days of standby, with auto data backup should battery charge drop to 5% or less.

Exclusive ASUS sound enhancement turns the new X Series into highly capable multimedia notebooks, with the best sound in their class: more power, wider range, and improved clarity combine to offer a more satisfying multimedia experience.
