ASUS X550CA-DB51 is a nice looking mid-level laptop that is quite capable in everyday usual and multimedia tasks and some gaming with its powerful Intel Core i5 processor with a large memory for multitasking. You'll find that it beats the competition with some features you won't find elsewhere along with Asus quality.

Intel Core i5 3337U processor at 1.8 GHz speed with 8 GB SO-DIMM DDR3 SDRAM and 750 GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive.. Super Hybrid Engine II featuring Instant On technology-allowing the Asus to start from hibernation in only two seconds.. 4GB is normally what you would get from computers at this price range so you will have a faster and smoother multitasking on your Asus.

750GB hard drive is quite a bit as you may have noticed. You also get a complimentary free 32GB ASUS cloud storage for 3 years. i5-3337U is an Ivy Bridge processor with hyperthreading and turbo boost.. Hyperthreading means it can handle four threads in parallel. The speed goes from 1.8 to 2.7 GHz thanks to Turbo Boost function. Your data will be safe with its auto backup when battery level drops below 5%. Operating system is the Windows 8.

15.6-Inch LED Backlit Screen at 1366 x 768 pixel resolution is quite satisfactory with 16:9 cinematic ratio and an auto-sensor adjusting brightness to the light conditions of the room you're in and the Intel GMA HD graphics card. Sound quality is also very good with large built-in speakers and Asus SonicMaster technology and Audio Wizard.
