By Alan Ng - Nov 13, 2014

ASUS are a very popular brand when it comes to buying a new laptop in 2014. We have already told you what ASUS have to offer in terms of the ASUS MeMoPad 7 tablet, but now we switch our attention to a ASUS 15.6-inch X551CA-BI30804C laptop review of specs to see if this laptop can challenge some of the popular HP models on the market.

This particular model is going to be a very popular item this month among certain retailers. You’ll be pleased to hear that it includes some very decent specs that should offer a lot to those who are just looking for a casual experience, rather than a high-end one.

We can tell you that ASUS 15.6-inch X551CA-BI30804C laptop specs include an 1.8Ghz Intel Core i3-3217U processor, along with 4GB of RAM. The display is HD quality with a 1366 x 768 resolution, while the graphics supplied are again using the infamous Intel HD 4000 system.

There is a 500GB on board for plenty of storage needs, while there is a DVD drive, USB 3.0 ports and HDMI to ensure that you have all the tools when transferring data to other devices or to the TV.

It doesn’t come with Windows 8.1 however though, but rather a copy of Windows 8 64-bit which you’ll have to upgrade yourself. Overall though, these specs should be fine for those that want simple functionality.

If you are looking for a gaming laptop however, you won’t be able to play high-end games with an Intel HD 4000 chipset so you’ll have to consider upgrading the graphics yourself or choosing a different laptop that comes with a specialized setup from AMD or Nvidia.
