Pros & Cons:
Pros: Good performance - USB 3.0 port at such low priced notebook - Dual layer optical driver that is non existent in expensive models - Asus 1 year accidental damage warranty - Light and portable

Cons: Multitasking with very demanding applications may be a little hard but more than adequate performance overall at this price range.

Although Asus F55A-ES01 15.6 inch is in the budget- low price category of notebooks, it provides good balance between performance and price and comes with great features you wouldn't expect at this price range. It is great for uni work, word processing, multitab internet browsing, playing songs, watching movies and even playing not very demanding games.
