ASUS X550LA-SI50402W 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, decent screen, decent features

Cons: Keyboard

Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop on sale to replace a failing HP laptop. I installed a 120 GB SSD to replace the default 500 GB HDD, and I installed Xubuntu, rather than using Windows 8. Under this situation, performance has been very good. I can boot in 10 seconds, and the laptop is very responsive with few to no errors. It also stays cool, and I have never seen temps go over 70 C, which was an issue for my previous laptop. As for gaming, it's not a gaming laptop. I can consistently play TF2 at 30fps and any 2D game at optimal performance, but I knew beforehand that Intel HD graphics weren't gaming graphics. 4GB (3.7 usable) RAM is enough for me. This laptop generally isn't powerful enough to do anything that requires more than that, so I never eat up what I have available.

The major con, however, is the keyboard. It's awful. This may be the worst keyboard I have ever used. The spacebar tilts and sticks, and all of the keys are significantly less responsive than normal, especially the tab key. If I go slowly and mash the keys, there's no problem, but touch typists should be take note. I find it a real shame that ASUS used such a flilmsy keyboard on the keyboard for an otherwise excellent computer.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works as expected
Sleek design and feel

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I replaced my laptop hard drive with a faster ssd, and bought this so I could use my old laptop hard drive for backup and additional storage. So far, it has worked just fine. No drivers required. Windows and Ubuntu both recognize it immediately.

This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter

Pros: Provides wi-fi to my desktop computer

Cons: Mediocre performance
Short range
Bad driver
You get what you pay for

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a temporary solution while I didn't have the ability to connect to ethernet. It did what I intended and gave me wi-fi. The connection isn't all that great, but I was ok with that because it was temporary. In my experience, it was NOT plug and play. I had to go online to find the driver software, which could have been a problem for someone who had no other option to get online. The software for this item is not very good and sometimes just doesn't work. I got what I expected for the low price, though.
