5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good For The Money!, September 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS A55A-AB31-BU 15.6-Inch Laptop (Blue) (Personal Computers)
Have been using this Asus for a few days following the usual very prompt and efficient Amazon ordering and shipping process. The computer appears well made, looks good and, with the exception of a little bloatware, was easy to setup to my needs. The keyboard, trackpad, DVD, and all USB ports work as they should. I like the keyboard. The screen is good, but perhaps just a little more resolution and brightness would be added benefits (I like a very bright screen).

Performance and speed are excellent. I added 4GB of 1600Mhz RAM which really boosted an already very adequately performing computer. I have had no issues and everything I've thrown at it, including video and photo editing, the Asus handled without a hiccup.

Overall I am quite pleased and feel, after some hours of researching laptops, this Asus represents a really good bang-for-the-buck.

I'm strongly considering purchasing this computer, but have some reservations concerning it not being listed as a product on the ASUS website... ie, is this an actual ASUS product?

This product is listed on the ASUS Global website under the model number K55A, rather than A55A. The first A represents a special model run for Amazon only, in multiple colors. The specs on the K55A are the same.
