Asus V550CA review

 

An affordable laptop, but has Asus cut too many corners to keep the price down?

Nice design ; Good processor ; Good keyboard ; Large hard drive ; Easy to carry

Screen resolution isn't great ; Power feels a bit lacking ; Could soon feel out of date ; No optical drive ; Low battery life

The Asus V550CA-CJ106H has an unenviable task of balancing power and price, but it doesn't do too bad a job. There are some nice features, such as the generous 1TB of disk space included and the touchscreen, but there are also some trade-offs.
