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.

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...

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...

High CPU usage fix PLEASE READ


ran Process Explorer and during the high CPU usage it reports that the file iaStor.sys is what's causing it. This file is the driver for device "Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller" under Device Manager. The old driver lists the device as...

Just a Nice all over computer I found for my daughter...BUT please read below and you might find yourself happier

High CPU usage after waking up from sleep or hibernation, so read Other Thoughts. Also the PC had to go back to have Hard drive replaced, but was done quick at no cost whatsoever
