Review Asus X55U-SX052H Notebook

 

Business bargain. Asus releases a simple and inexpensive business

Display with good contrast ratio; Reasonably quiet; Chassis stays cool; USB 3.0

Keyboard clatters; Overall performance is low

Despite the frugal AMD APU, the battery life of the X55U is average at best.
