Asus X552CL Laptop Product Description

If you are looking for a budget priced laptop that delivers plenty of bang for your buck the Asus x552CL should be right at the top of your list.

Unfortunately being labelled as a 'budget laptop' can conjure up images of Del Boy and cheap Soviet Bloc era knock-offs.  But the X552CL is a pucker bit of kit and even Del would soon be reaching for the folding stuff if he had a chance of owning this machine.  But enough of the Peckham palaver.  Let's have a serious look at this 15.6" laptop from Asus.

 

Designed For Success

You wouldn't expect a MacBook Air style silhouette for this price but the Asus X552Cl does have a pleasingly slim profile. And even with the built in DVD it still only weighs 2.15kg. Making it extremely portable and ideal for taking with you wherever you go.

X552CL Performance

The Intel i3 core processor, graphics card and dynamic memory make this a fast and highly responsive machine. Perfect for work, study or home use. And, with the 64-bit Windows 8 operating system, it is so easy to multitask and manage your workload. Asus have also included two USB 3.0 ports on this machine. This makes data transfer around ten times faster than with standard USB 2.0 ports. Transfer movies in seconds rather than in minutes. Another feature that we will all appreciate is the two second restart from standby. No more sitting around stamping your foot in frustration while you wait for the laptop to wake.

Gaming On A Budget

Unlike other laptops in this price range the Asus X552CL has a good graphics card already installed. With the nVidia GT710M on board it is possible to do some serious gaming and it can even handle some 3D games.

Screen Display

The screen on the Asus X552CL is a 15.6" LED backlit thin film transistor LCD display. All of which means you get bright and vibrant images that brings the best out of apps, games and movies.td>

Battery Power

Asus Super Hybrid Engine II technology helps make the battery more efficient and optimises the use of resources. Such is the power of this technology Asus claim you can leave the laptop on standby for two weeks and it will still power up within two seconds. And with the X552CL there is no danger of losing important work if your battery does run down. As when the battery reaches 5% your data is automatically backed up for you.

Sound As A Pound

Many of us are used to the rather weedy sound produced by built in laptop speakers. But the X552CL bucks the trend and produces startlingly good audio. The Asus SonicMaster technology takes the audio performance of this laptop to a whole new level. Crystal clear sound, deeper bass and formidable output makes listening to music or playing videos on this machine a powerful experience. Add in the AudioWizard that allows you to fine tune the sound and you can see why Asus are so proud of their SonicMaster technology. And why it is such a bonus to find it on this laptop.

The Finishing Touch

The generously sized touchpad on the X552CL is perfect for making the most of Windows 8. The touchpad supports Smart Gesture which allows you to use a range of touch commands such as pinch zoom, scroll and tap. But, in my opinion, the star of this particular show is the full size ergonomically design keyboard. The Chiclet design makes typing a real pleasure and you can comfortably work for hours at a time with this keyboard.
