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.

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...
