15.6 inch ASUS X550CA-DB91 laptop is a light and slim all-around budget notebook with higher class features. Intel Pentium processor is surprisingly faster than an Intel i3 in some tasks, it has an optical drive although quite a slim machine and has a lovely price tag you will like 🙂

Intel Pentium 2117U processor at 1.8 GHz, 4 GB SO-DIMM DDR3 SDRAM and 500 GB Serial ATA hard drive as well as 32GB Cloud based Asus storage free for 3 years.. This is a good processor for everyday computing and some games and multimedia, 4GB RAM allows for smooth multitasking- so that you can run a few things at once with no problems and 500GB + 32GB storage capacity will be more than what an average computer user will need.

It has some nice features you wouldn't expect from a low-cost machine, such as the Super Hybrid Engine II for 2-second instant resume from sleep mode and automatic data backup when battery drops below 5%. While the Cloud based Asus Webstorage lets you access your files on any device at any location.

Asus X550 has a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit screen at 1366*768 pixel resolution and 16:9 full screen cinematic ratio and a very sensitive light sensor to adjust the brightness of screen automatically and save on battery. Sound quality is also better than what we were expecting with the bigger than normal speakers, Asus SonicMaster technology for deep bass, full and clear sound and Asus AudioWizard to let you choose between game, music and movie modes for whatever you need.
