We are now at a stage in the computer market that you no longer need to spend in excess of $1000 for a decent laptop, although if you are fixated on Apple, then this is still the norm. Even though we do love Mac devices because of how well the hardware works with its software, Windows has come a long way and is now far more stable.
It’s for this reason why there seems to be a spike on Windows laptops once again, although competitive prices is surely the biggest factor. The Asus S500CA-SI50305T Ultrabook is a fine example of this, because while it tries its best to look like some sort of MacBook Air/Pro hybrid, its price of less than $500 says otherwise.
We know that the Asus S500CA-SI50305T Ultrabook will be anything like the two MacBooks mentioned above, but for its price there is often disbelief. Saying that, the specs are still rather impressive with its 15.6-inch LED backlit HD screen, third generation 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 6GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and a 500GB hard drive.
It’s clear that the Asus S500CA-SI50305T Ultrabook is not lacking in terms of its features and the review scores agree with this. Owners love the looks and also the i5 processor because it is a perfect balance of style and performance. However, they agree that the screen resolution is a disappointment and the keyboard lacks refinement.
However, you’d have to agree that these are just minor issue, and the fact that the Asus S500CA-SI50305T Ultrabook price of less than $500 and the promise of a price drop in the coming weeks shows this laptop is worth your consideration.
