2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, May 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS A53U-AS22 15.6-Inch Laptop (1.65 GHz AMD E-450 Processor, 4GB DIMM, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) Mocha (Personal Computers)
Understand this is priced to be an introductory type laptop- so had lowered expectations when ordering. However, saw positive reviews regarding several other Asus models and took a chance. Was very surprised at how slow it was- and that was for simple tasks like browsing- not gaming. Not having Intel inside really makes a huge difference. Felt like I went back in time ten years so slow and clunky. Overall design was ok- nice screen size. But in light of slowness am sending back.

For future purchases it would be helpful to look up the computing power of a CPU rather than judging based solely on "doesn't have Intel inside". This Specific CPU is a bargain low thermal output CPU from AMD and much shouldn't be expected in terms of speed. However its TDP (Thermal Design Power) is 18 watts which means its battery life should be excellent.

I agree its low just dont agree about the bargain part. There are other laptops out there that are faster and for same price or in some cases cheaper. Battery life isnt as important to me, have no comments about that didnt keep long enough to check that out.
