Asus K55VD review

 

Windows 8's fancy new interface may work brilliantly on touchscreen devices, with many manufacturers releasing new laptops that support this, but that's not to say that you should ignore traditional laptops, such as the Asus K55VD. With its low price...

A great laptop for under £450, and its dedicated graphics make it an attractive option for gamers on a budget

Asus K55VD review

 

The K55VD is one of the cheapest Ivy Bridge laptops we've seen, and can be found for under £550 if you shop around online. The Core i5-3210M processor is nippy, although the benchmark score of 132 in our WorldBench 6 suite is a little lower than we'd...

It isn't the prettiest, but Asus' K55VD delivers surprisingly good performance for your money. The touchpad takes some getting used to, but as with the smallish 500GB hard disk, these foibles aren't deal-breakers.

Asus K55VD

 

Decent specs and performance ; Clickpad aside, good build quality and design for the price segment

No Bluetooth ; Clickpad was loose and clacky on our review sample ; GeForce GT 610M is underpowered enough that you may as well just run Intel ; Ordinary battery life

The K55VD gives decent performance for the price, but the clickpad and battery life are left wanting.

An awsome laptop-Well built and very fast.

 

I purchased this 15.6' laptop 18 months ago, one of the best I have ever had. After near 45 yrs. as an Electronics tech, I was choosy, this unit ticks all the boxes. Not a "Cheap Flexible bad Computer", but a well built unit that delivers what it is...

Dissatisfied with this laptop

 

We are probably just unlucky and are not whining in this review. We have had this laptop for under 1year. Within 4 months of having this device, there were faults with motherboard and issues with the video card drivers not updating properly. This was...

Great laptop

 

Laptop has a nice screen coating and nice metallic pad. Comfortable to type with, and much more quiet than my old laptop. The fan only starts getting loud (and as a result the laptop heats up) when you're running applications that require your CPU to...

Fast, nice screen, quiet, nice touchpad

Placement of USB 3.0 ports, placement of SD cart slot/no push in push out feature for memory cards, no support for use of other types of memory cards

Asus K55VD-SX047V

 

None yet - due return as faulty - even after paying a pre-delivery inspection charge

Weighs a ton. Despatched without a working battery - 'No battery detected' by laptop - only noticed when not mains powered.
