Product information

The sophisticated Asus X550CA features a classic design and great power inside. The spun-circle finish and patterned palm rests adds a touch of sophistication to a machine that’s as impressive on the outside as it is on the inside. With an Intel Core i3 processor, Sonic Master audio technology and 2 second resume, the X550CA delivers a superior laptop for everyday use.

Key features:

  • Powered by an Intel Core i3 processor and 4GB of RAM, the X550CA will provide smooth computing performance for your everyday tasks, whether that's word processing or streaming HD videos.

  • Store photos, videos, music and documents on the 750GB hard drive.

  • SonicMaster technology and Asus AudioWizard combine to deliver high fidelity audio, allowing you to hear the nuances in every track. SonicMaster technology, developed in conjunction with Bang & Olufsen, balances sound, reduces electronic noise, eliminates distortion and boosts performance.

  • Powered by Super Hybrid Engine II Technology, Asus Instant On allows the X550CC to resume in under 2 seconds and stay in standby for up to 5 days. It also saves any data automatically should the battery life fall below 5%, so you don’t have to worry about losing your work.

  • The extra-wide dust repellent island-style keys on the chiclet keyboard combined with the palm rest makes for comfortable and accurate typing sessions for improved productivity and interaction.

  • The X550CA comes equipped with a DVD SuperMulti drive, allowing you to play CDs and DVDs and even copy information onto blank discs.

  • The X550CA features two USB ports and a card slot for easy transfer of files from your camera’s memory card or an external hard drive. Using the USB ports, you’ll also be able to connect peripherals like external mice.

  • VGA and HDMI give you options to output your display onto a bigger screen, such as a TV, monitor or projector to make it easier to share with others.

  • WiFi and a built-in Ethernet connection makes it easy to connect to the internet, with Wi-Fi giving you a wireless option, while the Ethernet connection means you can plug into a router for a faster, more stable connection.

ASUS laptop Bought this yesterday but the battery is a dud. It's a beautiful, clever machine but it would only work when it was connected to the electrics. In other words, the battery wouldn't charge up. After several hours of being plugged in, the battery showed zero percent. It's going back to the shop tomorrow. 28 May 2014
Look at other options This is an average product, but not worth the premium price compared to its competitors. I purchased two of these for my children. Both laptops are being returned. The process of upgrading to windows 8.1 was traumatic. The build quality is distinctly average, and the keyboard and screen hinges feel like a problem waiting to happen. The biggest issue is inconsistent performance for WiFi connectivity. We have many devices in the home that have (and remain) happily connected to the BT HomeHub. Not so this laptop. Look elsewhere and save yourself some money. 08 April 2014
Perfect Very happy with this laptop and see no reason to deduct a single star. It has a very nice design and feel, it is fast and incredibly silent and the touch screen works extremely well. Pleasing to use. 28 February 2014
