Product Description

ASUS D550MA Notebook – Do More, with Less

Featuring a full-sized 15.6” HD display and the latest Intel dual core processor, the ASUS D550MA is the perfect everyday notebook with the performance to tackle any task you throw at it— whether you’re studying or just having fun. With crystal-clear sound and picture thanks to ASUS SonicMaster and Splendid Technology, the D550MA’s performance is notable.

Features At-A-Glance:
  • 15.6” HD (1366x 768) display great for home entertainment—watch a movie or edit photos with a crystal-clear, vibrant picture
  • Latest Intel Celeron N2815 Dual Core Processor delivers the performance you need — from live streaming video content to web browsing and gaming, all at once
  • Elegant textured finish reduces scratches and fingerprints while giving the notebook a unique look
  • SonicMaster technology provides crisp, true-to-life sound with a deeper bass
  • Instant On: the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II delivers 2-second wake ups from hibernate mode and worry-free auto data back up when battery level falls below 5 percent

Design that Fits You

The D550MA features an elegantly textured finish for a comfortable grip while preventing scratches and fingerprints. The matte screen frame and hidden hinge design complete the clean, seamless look and accent the display, which features Splendid video technology. ASUS has developed Splendid Technology to provide four preset modes — Normal, Theater, Vivid, and Manual — to optimize your viewing experience. The D550MA analyzes the image and fine-tunes it to your setting. Now you can study without fatiguing your eyes, scroll through photo albums with richer and more vibrant colors, and pop your favorite DVD or video game into the optical drive and see crystal-clear sharpness and true-to-life visuals.

Faster than Ever, Giving You Time to Play

Whether you’re studying or playing your favorite video game, the D550MA offers the ultimate mix of productivity and entertainment. The latest Intel Celeron N2815 Dual Core Processor lets you use multiple applications without having to worry about lag or killing your battery. Sporting the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II, the D550MA can lasts in standby mode for up to two weeks and wakes up in just 2 seconds (7 seconds faster than industry standard). You’ll never wait through frustrating reboot times again &mdsah; or slow transfer speeds for that matter. The D550MA’s USB 3.0 port is up tp 10 times faster than USB 2.0, so you can move a 25GB Blu-ray-quality movie in just 70 seconds. And with built-in VGA and HDMI ports, you can easily connect the D550MA to an external monitor or TV for big-screen entertainment.

An Easy Touch

The D550MA features Smart Gesture technology for easy and smooth navigation. Pinch-zoom in on pictures, scroll up and down, and swipe quickly between pages without ever needing a mouse. It’s all intuitive, just like navigating your Smartphone or tablet. With a touchpad that’s 47 percent larger than other brands, maneuvering your applications has never been easier or more responsive. ASUS has matched the touchpad with a chiclet keyboard that’s been integrated into the body for a seamless, ergonomic design. And with IceCool technology, the D550MA’s palm rest—whose unique internal layout keeps heat-producing parts away from your hands—never rises above body temperature. You’ll be able to work or play for hours.

Hear the World Differently

ASUS’s team of sound engineers has crafted SonicMaster technology to produce high-quality audio output from built-in speakers. The D550MA’s sound chambers are larger — while maintaining the notebook’s thinness — allowing sound waves to fully expand outward. This results in reduced distortion and a deeper, richer bass. With AudioWizard technology, the sound is optimized with five different preset modes that fit your specific needs —whether you’re watching your favorite movie, streaming the latest album, or playing a video game. Now you can hear every word and make out every note even in a noisy setting.

Your Own Cloud: Access Your Data Anytime, Anywhere

The D550MA comes with 3GB of ASUS Webstorage so you never lose data again. Store your content — personal files, photos, movies — and access it instantly. With WebStorage, your data will be automatically updated and synced with all your devices so you can share photos or stream music through your phone, tablet, or computer. No more clunky external hard drives. All you need is an internet connection.

Netflix is choppy and when loaded first the voice and video get out of sync (-Edit- After updating to Windows 8.1 this isn't as much of an issue.

Don't listen to all the negative comments unless the computer was a lemon. Someone even had the audacity to say the are going to return their's and buy a mac. If you have money to buy a mac, why would you consider this computer anyway. By the way, I have 3 Mac computers and needed extra computers for my kids to surf, play simple flash online games, do homework, etc. and this is an excellent buy!

I also build computers and you can barely build a desktop computer (including case w/ power supply, HD, MoBo, Ram, DVD and with monitor) in this price range. Yes, the keyboard doesn't have the feel or power of my MacBook Pro, but I spent $1,800 for my mac. So is a fair comparison? No, because they are two different machines with different purposes. However, it is durable and if you have concerns, do what I did. I bought an inexpensive usb keyboard and mouse and let my kids use that without touching the actual laptop keyboard to preserve it.

I bought two and the are serving me and my family well and remember, ASUS is one of the top motherboard manufacturers in the world and I trust them. Also, it has 4 gigs of ram, a 500 GB HD, DVD burner, camera, Intel Dual core processor (and I know it isn't a i3, i5 or i7) and it is 15.4. screen...It's a steal and I don't know how they are making money.

Now, if you are a serious online gamer, do video rendering, audio recording/mixing, etc., then you will bring it to it's knees. But that's why I have my Mac Book Pro which has the i7 processor with hyper-threading which doubles my cores to 8, with 8 gigs of ram and no matter what I throw at it, it handles it with no problem.

Nevertheless, if you are considering a good computer for yourself, kids, significant other, etc.; and they just need to surf, do homework or use Microsoft office, then this is an EXCELLENT buy. I highly recommend this computer!!!!!

I bought this laptop this weekend for my daughter in college as a replacement, after setting it up I had to learn the win 8 OS as I am more accustomed to win 7.

What I found with this pc was

It is slow, do not expect to go fast, this does have a celeron chip which is dependable but is a little dated.
There is 4 gb of ram, now this is probably minimum to run win 8
The hard drive is adequate at 500gb however the rpm is 5400, again this can be a slow factor.

I have read the reviews here and the positive reviews are on target, it is a great starter pc or inexpensive laptop to get the job done as long as you are not in a rush.

In the end I think if you are looking for performance, pony up the bucks, if however you are looking for something that's light in the wallet and you don't need the speed, this is the one for you.

I got this for my sister who is not very computer savvy. Nice screen, fast, lots of memory and big HD for the price. If you have never worked with Windows 8, I would download one of the 99 cent Kindle books for reference as it is quite a bit different in look and feel than windows 7.

It's a nice laptop for everyday usage. It won't do any heavy computing or play games that require dedicated graphics, but it's not built for that. Surf internet, check e-mails, use facebook, put an office package on it for school or office - it will do all that just fine. Great that it has DVD-RW when a lot of new laptops go away with it. You buy laptop for mobility, why would you want to carry external dvd-rom with it???

My Acer laptop died from a graphics processor meltdown (2.4 ghz quad core processor, 8gb ram, and I believe integrated intel graphics) and being an in engineer in college I needed something in a hurry to replace it with but I didn't have the spare money to buy something fast and fancy (again I'm in college...) So I found this, it was pretty cheap and I saw that it said it's memory was expandable to 8gb ram. I figured, dual core computer, up to 8 gb of ram, hopefully decent graphics, good enough for me. For now it certainly is good enough. I misinterpreted the expandable ram to think that it had 2 bays. It does not, it only has one bay for memory, and it comes with a 4gb stick installed and all I had were 4 gb sticks, I swapped out to a slightly better one and got a bit of improvement.

Pros:
*Cheap
*Runs surprisingly cool and quietly. Granted it's a new laptop, but I can't remember hearing the fan at all, even when playing graphics and processor heavy games (Well heavy for what this computer is packing) and I've never had it heat up to the point it was uncomfortable.
*Decent battery life
*Not too much bloatware on it preinstalled.
*Office comes preinstalled but unactivated, meaning you have to buy a copy, which is a pain if you're only allowed to use the code you have once and that computer crashes and it's impossible to deactivate that computer to activate office on your new computer.

Cons:
*Video playback sucks. Netflix is choppy and when loaded first the voice and video get out of sync (-Edit- After updating to Windows 8.1 this isn't as much of an issue. I still experience slow out of sync video occasionally but that can be attributed to any number of things)
*Slow.
