Asus A553SA-XX049D is an affordable laptop that looks quite trendy. This is a multipurpose laptop. Talking about the in-depth details and performance of Asus A553SA-XX049D.
The Asus A553SA-XX049D laptop has a perfect finish. It comes with a TN panel display. On the right side, you will find the optical drive. All the other connections are entirely on the left side which in my opinion is very good. It has the DC input power supply. It also has VGA and HDMI ports and a USB port. It is also provided with a card reader. The back of the screen looks absolutely fantastic.
The design is beautiful but it is a horrible fingerprint magnet. The keyboard works very fine. The keyboard is responsive and has a good feel to it. This is a full-size keyboard with the number pad and it also has a function key. The touchpad is also nice and large. It supports multiple gestures with one finger, 2 fingers as well as 3 fingers. The edges of the laptop are curved. It has a brushed aluminum look. The laptop is fairly slim and I really can’t complain about the weight of the 2.2Kgs including the battery. It comes with a non-removable built-in battery.
There is an Asus branding on the top of the laptop. The color of the device is black. The stereo speakers are located on the bottom. All the major connectivities like USB ports HDMI pins are present on the either sides. The minimum dimensions of the laptop are 25.8 x 38 x 2.5 cm and weight is 2.2kg.
The Asus A553SA-XX049D is provided with a 15.6” WLED-backlit display. The resolution of the display is 1366 x 768 pixels. It comes with an aspect ratio of 16:9. It is provided with an anti-glare coating. The display is bright enough and the color is mostly accurate.
The Asus A553SA-XX049D laptops are powered by an Intel® Pentium N3700 with Intel® HD Graphics. Runs on OS DOS. The laptop got a RAM of 4GB RAM. Provided with 500 GB hard disk. Provided with Built-in dual Stereo Speakers with SonicMaster.
Provided connectivity options are Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth Ver. 4.0, 1 x Microphone-in/Headphone-out jack, 1 USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.0, 1 HDMI; 1 VGA, 1 headphone/microphone combo, 1 x card reader slot and a 3.5mm. Comes with Built-in Wi-Fi Card
To get a detailed idea of the performance I ran a benchmark test 3D mark Vantage CPU test, it scored about 5500 which is not bad at all. The graphic card is extremely weak therefore is far low then you expect. In my opinion, the GPU performance is fine but the HDD is really slow. I have seen much faster laptops at this price segment.
If you are a game lover then this laptop is no good to you. It comes with good sound quality both built in speakers and the audio output from the 3.5mm audio jack is good. The display is awful and the colors are washed up. It is a lot pixelated with certain colors. And the color accuracy is very bad and there is a lot of noise at times and the response time is horrible too. But the viewing angles are surprisingly fine, though.
ü Low price
ü Inbuilt speakers with SonicMaster
û Poor Graphic card
û Awful display
The Asus A553SA-XX049D is a laptop that we have to think before purchasing. It got poor display as well as a graphic card which is a major point to be discussed. It is available at a price of RS 21000/- The quality of the laptop looks premier. This is a reasonably priced laptop.
