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 i5 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 i5 processor and 8GB of RAM, the X550CA will help you do whatever you want to do, from making video calls to editing your high resolution photos. It'll even boost its performance to keep up with more intensive programs.

  • Store masses of photos, videos, music and documents on the large 1TB 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 three USB ports including an ultrafast USB 3.0 socket 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 VivoBook X550CA Laptop, Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 1TB, 15.6" Touch Screen, Grey 4.7 5 3 3
Asus X550CA - streamlining my life Time came to replace my 6-year-old laptop, which went thru 3 hard disks and 3 operating systems in its time, but was prone to crashes and hangs from drivers that never received updates, and suspected flaky disk controller. I searched for ages narrowing down choice to this machine and a few others. It won, and I have no regrets. It is FAST, silent, fuss-free, has LOADS of disk space, and (fortunately for some heavyweight software I use) 8 GB RAM (giving me a good safety margin for the future). My only criticism is that whoever designed the keyboard did not think through the consequences of having a back row of 20 identical buttons with minuscule greyish legends on black. How to mentally group them so I don't need to read them? I have positioned some pieces of card behind groups of 4 keys. It helps, while my muscle-memory re-learns. I mostly use mouse and keyboard. Great (huge) trackpad but I have always preferred mouse for speed. I use the touch-screen when I play games to relax. Overall: a joy to use, smart, fast, silent, fuss-free, solid-enough build, good screen, good price. Recommended. 15 April 2014
ASUS X550C I wanted a laptop that was powerful, has a touch screen, which is great for Windows 8 and is easy to use. The ASUS X550C has all of these attributes. 07 April 2014
Exceptional Value If you are looking for a laptop which provides an outstanding specification at an affordable price then look no further. With its i5 processor, you will have no problem running programs and multi-tasking. The addition of 8GB of RAM ensures that your laptop will be at its most efficient whether you choose to use it for entertainment or work purposes. 16 December 2013
