Summary: - The ASUS X550CA still remains as a solid value for those looking at a basic laptop computer. The problem is that it doesn't really distinguish itself from the competition in any real way. In fact, the laptop design really needs to be updated to address the limited number of USB ports which is as much as half as many as the competition. In addition to this, the battery life is still on the low side for the budget segment.
Summary: With an attractive design, strong audio and a low price, the ASUS X550CA is a solid sub-$500 notebook. However, you have to be willing to live with a few compromises, such as limited viewing angles and mediocre battery life. At this price, we prefer the HP Pavilion g6t because of its brighter screen and longer endurance. But if you want a handsome budget laptop with above-average sound and good enough performance for everyday tasks, the X550CA is worth the investment.
Excerpt: We were big fans of Asus’s S series of VivoBooks when they first launched in 2012, but last year’s newer models failed to impress with their aging hardware and dimly-lit touchscreens. Thankfully, Asus seems to have found the right balance between price and performance for its latest VivoBook, the X550CA.
Summary: ASUS X550Ca je typickým zástupcem levných 15,6“ notebooků s cenou v obchodech pod deset tisíc korun. Od některých konkurentů se liší tenčím provedením. Vzhledem k ceně je poměrně dobře zpracovaný a vyznačuje se velmi tichých chlazením.
Pros: tenké provedení, tiché chlazení bez ohledu na zátěž
Cons: pouze dvě USB, nižší výkon úsporného Celeronu
