Today we are are going to analyze the ASUS X555LA, a laptop with a good value for the money profile available in North America and Europe in 2016.
I am a big fan of ASUS laptops, one of the reasons is certainly its design, which is normally brighter than most dull black laptops. Even if their design is quite neat, the main reason behind my affinity towards ASUS laptops is the fact that this Taiwanese brand has a lot of different models and series, making it easier for anyone to purchase a laptop which will fit their needs completely.
ASUS X555LA Specs
Within the X555LA model, there are a lot of different laptops with different specs, and we will analyze here the ones which were released in 2016. One example is the X555LA-XX2264T and the X555LA-HI71105L. It is really important to know what exact model you are getting, because they might have considerable differences in terms of hardware. Different processors are generally the main difference that can be found between different X555LA laptops.
While the X555LA-HI71105L has a 5th generation Intel i7-5500u processor, the X555LA-XX2264T has a core Intel Core i5-5200U processor, which shares the same technology as the i7-5500U but has a lower processing capacity.
Apart from the processor, the X555LA generally has an overall good setup for a value laptop, with 1TB of storage capacity on its hard drive, and a humble RAM set, varying from 4 to 6GB on the models evaluated.
Who should buy an ASUS X555LA?
Considering that this laptop is not very powerful, if you are planning to use your laptop for your gaming achievements, you should probably look for something else. But if you want to use it for office work, video streaming, web browsing and Skype, this laptop will probably tick all the boxes for you.
