Review Asus Pro P53E-SO102X Notebook


Business for tight budgets. The case and screen both come with matt looks. Is that enough to call it "business"? Asus thinks so and even prints AsusPro on the minimalistic computer. How much "professional" is possible for €450?

Stable base unit, Matt surfaces, Matt display, Good keyboard, Quiet, fast touchpad, Low heat dissipation, Good application performance, Good speaker sound, Very quiet, particularly in "Quiet Office" mode

Few, adversely placed ports, No fingerprint reader, no docking port, Poor contrast and low brightness, Plastic feel (lid), A better touchpad and a higher resolution. If focus is put on work efficiency, then at least properly
