ASUS X550ZA Review
Graphics: Despite being an integrated graphics processor, the A10 APU has six dedicated graphics processing cores and is capable of some impressive rendering capabilities. This means the ASUS X550ZA can run games like Far Cry 4 or The Sims series with stable frame rates.
Storage: This laptop features a terabyte of storage, nearly double the standard storage space on laptops in this price range.
Trackpad: The built-in trackpad features multitouch and gesture functionality, in addition to being enormous. It’s rare for laptops in general to have a trackpad worth bothering with at all, but this one is actually viable for gaming!
Processing: The AMD APU, while being a powerful graphics processor, is a also quad-core CPU. It runs at a base speed of 2.5 gigahertz or GHz – standard for many laptops – but can be overclocked to 3.4GHz, which is most commonly seen on desktop computers.
Display: The facade wears thin on a low-resolution screen at 15 inches. A max resolution of around 720p on a HD-sized screen results in a blurry, fuzzy mess. Expect eye strain after playing for more than a few hours.
Gets Hot: Some customers have remarked the keyboard and areas near the air vents get very warm after extended play. Consider using a cooling pad.[fusion_button link=”http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-X550ZA-15-6-Inch-Laptop/dp/B00YR6BMOQ%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAIBI7DWKR2WSQ6ASA%26tag%3Dcrushreviews.com-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB00YR6BMOQ” color=”default” size=”xlarge” stretch=”” type=”” shape=”” target=”_blank” title=”” gradient_colors=”|” gradient_hover_colors=”|” accent_color=”” accent_hover_color=”” bevel_color=”” border_width=”1px” icon=”” icon_position=”left” icon_divider=”yes” modal=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””]GET IT NOW ON AMAZON[/fusion_button]
