The screen could be better, but this is a well-priced laptop that gets the best out of its old hardware

ASUS X550CA-XO113H Laptop

 

At £329.99, can this budget laptop compete with its more expensive rivals?

Incredible value, Impressively quiet and cool, Decent touchpad and keyboard

Feels cheap, Slow Celeron processor, Unimpressive screen

Excellent

 

Slow updates when unplugged. Do not try to apply updates with system unplugged. Replaced 500GB HD with SSD. System rocks! Video is integrated but with faster HD speed video is sufficient. If I could do it again I would use a little bigger SSD HD...

Great processor speed Good RAM (4GB with 1 slot open for 8GB max). Responsive, touchscreen. HDMI

Battery not the best-careful with system updates.
