Asus X550LDV-XO610H review: respectable battery life makes the Asus X550 a good desktop replacement laptop

Price: 599 Rating: 7 The X500 range from Asus is designed to provide affordable laptops at ‘everyday’ prices. The cheaper pricing is probably helped by using cheaper chips – most of the models currently listed on Asus’ website are using last-generation Intel Ivy Bridge processors from 2012.(See also: 20 best budget laptops of 2014.)

Asus Zenbook UX301LA review: a stylish 13.3-inch touchscreen Ultrabook

Price: �1439 inc VAT Rating: 7 With the Zenbook line, Asus has intentionally copied many design aspects of Apple’s MacBook Air, such as its familiar wedge shape, chiclet-style keys, surrounded by a smooth ceramic material, and roomy trackpad. That’s no bad thing, as the MacBook Air is an excellent ultra-portable computer, so the Zenbook represents […]

Asus X102BA review: modest performance even for a budget laptop, but still good value for money

Price: £299 inc VAT Rating: 8 With a typical online price of around £299, the new X102BA from Asus is one of the most affordable Windows 8 laptops that we’ve seen. It’s obviously not going to be a top performer at that price, and its compact 10in screen and downsized keyboard won’t suit everyone. But […]

Asus X75VC review: a mid-range laptop that offers excellent gaming performance

Price: �599 inc VAT Rating: 7 The Asus X75VC is a fairly chunky laptop – the X75VC’s designers haven’t wheeled out the usual chrome-effect metal or brushed aluminium for this machine; instead, this machine is clad entirely from black plastic. There are no lights on show, and the only sop to style is a lined […]

Asus V550C review: a smart budget laptop doing its best with an Ivy Bridge processor

Price: £582 inc VAT Rating: 7 The Asus V550C has a 15.6in screen, which puts it in the middle of this test’s field, but it’s the slimmest laptop on test – its maximum thickness of 22mm tapers to a 14mm front edge. Those vital statistics are almost svelte enough to join ultraportable territory if you […]
