8 Reasons For

Asus Has Good Notebook PC Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Asus laptops and also specifically for Asus medium processor core notebook PCs and found that in both cases Asus had good ratings.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Screen Size

The smallest screen size of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years is 10" and the biggest is 18". The Asus X551CA has one of the bigger screen sizes (15.6 inches) amongst portable PCs of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 15.6" notebook PCs currently available including the DELL 5520[plb_1385146_price], the HP ProBook 4540s[plb_1532938_price], or the Lenovo B5400A[plb_2037224_price] which is cheaper.

If this medium processor core notebook PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Asus X75A[plb_2093232_price] (17.3") which is also cheaper.

Has a Full-Size Keyboard
