Asus A53E-XA2


A cool brushed aluminum panel covers the palm rest and surrounds the keyboard. The silvery aluminum is contrasted against the matte black keys of the chiclet-style keyboard and adjacent number pad. The typing experience is quite comfortable. A...

Intel Core i5 CPU provides strong performance. Solid battery life. Scratch-resistant finish

Light on features. Awkwardly placed power connector

The Asus A53E-XA2 holds its own among the top budget laptops, thanks to an Intel Core i5 processor, strong battery life, and a pretty cool design.

A compact, sturdy laptop- good enough for surfing, email, & general internet things...The 6 GB RAM helps keep it on par with my activities

Generally good, but I have a need for more speed

Lasted 2 years


See cons. It is tough to recommend it knowing that it will die at some point.

1. Price ; 2. Speed: i7 Quadcore ; 3. Discrete graphics card ; 4. 6 GB of RAM ; 5. HMDI out, USB 3.0 ; 6. Biggest bang for the buck for an amazing machine ; 7. ....while I had it, it was a great machine

1. Died on me after exactly 2 years and 3 months. The charger stopper working. This is a known issue with this model of ASUS. The problem is that the DC jack stops working internally. The DC jack is part of the motherboard (not a discrete part that can...

Great while it worked

I've had nothing but problems with this computer. As soon as the one year warranty expired I began having power issues. I contact ASUS support and I was advised that the motherboard had to be replaced and the process would cost almost $300 total. I...

Decent while it lasted


I tried really hard to take good care of this laptop. I didn't drop it, bang it really hard, or just generally abuse it. I was severely disappointed when the power jack on the motherboard starting losing connectivity. For a good five months, I had to...

It was great for the first year. I didn't have any performance issues, but I wasn't trying to run games or video editing. Would have been a great laptop if it lasted

The power jack on the mother board starting losing connectivity after a year, meaning I had to put the power plug at weird angles to get it to charge. I tried soldering a new one on, but ended up breaking the motherboard (my fault) ; The power jack on...

Good computer


So far so good with this machine. Really, only complaint would be the location of the power and usb ports, which is more to the front than I like. I end up hitting them a lot which can get annoying and concerns me I'll damage the port. Speakers are...
