Summary: This baby is running strong! I checked out the specs and knew exactly what I was getting. The i7 handles like a charm, and the USB 3.0 transfers files to thumb drives super fast. I got this strictly for Web Development and it's paying off already!
Summary: I bought this very right, so 5 stars is based on performance vs price paid. Nice machine, works very well. I loaded windows 8 right away... I could go into a full review, but I don't think its necessary.... i3 2nd gen, 6gb ram, 750 gb hard drive, runs smoothly... it is what it is.
Summary: I bought the Asus X53E as a backup laptop for my Toshiba Core i5 because 1) I couldn't pass up the deal: a Core i3 notebook with 6Gb RAM, 750 Gb HD that runs at 2.3 gHZ for a flat $349.00. 2) Asus has now been around long enough to be considered a main stream brand. 3) This laptop shipped with Windows 7, NOT Windows 8. Windows 7 is still relatively new, reliable and now familiar to me.
Summary: Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Durable the PC is very fast with many features. Having had a much older notebook for some years this one works like lightening and has all the up-to-date features. Excellent memory and storage: 6GB and 750GB. I am classifying myself as an intermediate as although I have used computers for 30 or more years I am ignorant of the interior of them!
Excerpt: "The asus is probably one of the best laptops that you can get for around £400 dont look at the brnd look at the price as when i got it i just looked at the specs so when i got home and saw the brand i thought to my self i might of made a mistake but when i started using it no question about it the laptop was the best i had as it has never gotten stuck and for £400 i would say it is a bargain as it has a 6gb ram, 750gb hard drive, and a i5 processor ...
Pros: usb 3 . 0 ports, i5 ports, 750gb hard drive, 6gb ram
Summary: Schon direkt beim auspacken fällt auf wie edel das Notebook aussieht! Das Design spricht mich sehr an und die geschliffene Aluminiumfläche lässt das ganze noch wertiger wirken! Von der Leistung bin ich auch sehr zufrieden, schneller Prozessor und genug Speicher. + Schickes/Edles Design + Nicht zu schwer + Leistung + Preis/Leistung ist der hammer!
