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.

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...

Broken

 

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...

hmmmm

 

Asus is a quality company, this just happened to be one of those models.... (not sure quality components were used)

decent for its specs

performed very slow, and had some hardware issues

Consumer review by:

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...

Very good laptop

 

Graphics are excellent and is very easy to use. I do not like the touch pad mouse on any laptop so I use a regular mouse. The laptop has very stylish and I like the polished metal finish where you rest your wrists. I would definitely recommend this...

Good machine

 

I got a better machine then I thought I would. Solid keyboard and good performance. Had a problem When I first started and called the company and they fixed it right away. Very Good Deal
