Design that Fits You
An elegantly textured finish for a comfortable grip while preventing scratches and fingerprints. The glossy screen and hidden hinge design complete the clean, seamless look and accent the display. ASUS developed Splendid Technology to provide four preset modes—Normal, Theater, Vivid, and Manual—to optimize your viewing experience. The ASUS laptop analyzes the image and fine-tunes it to your setting. Now you can study without fatigue to your eyes, scroll through photo albums with richer and more vibrant colors, and watch videos with crystal-clear sharpness and true-to-life visuals.
Features Smart Gesture technology for easy and smooth trackpad 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. ASUS has matched the trackpad with a chiclet keyboard that’s been integrated into the body for a seamless, ergonomic design. And with IceCool technology, the 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 and play for hours.
Hear the World Differently
ASUS’s team of sound engineers crafted SonicMaster technology to produce highest-quality audio output from built-in speakers. The sound chambers are larger—while maintaining the notebook’s thinness—allowing sound waves to fully expand outward. This results in reduced distortion with 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.
Enhance your computing lifestyle with the ASUS X551MAV-EB01-B(S) Notebook PC. This notebook offers you the power and the speed you need at your work. Geared with an Intel Celeron N2840 2.16GHz dual-core processor that can turbo up to a dashing 2.58GHz as well as 4GB of RAM, this notebook is all set to deliver superb computing and mobility. With Windows 8, there is no need for an optical drive since all your apps needs can downloaded via the Windows 8 Store. The 500GB HDD with a speed of 5400 RPM offers you enough space for storing all your files, downloads, music, videos, software and so on.

This laptop is just as I ordered. It is a VERY NICE laptop. Setup took about a half an hour. It was very simple. I ordered this laptop KNOWING that it did NOT come with a optical drive. Seeing as though external drives are cheap enough that did not bother me a bit.
My first Windows update took about 2 hours (NO big deal) and went smoothly. I got the Windows 10 update icon on the taskbar and reserved my FREE update.
So far (3 days) the laptop is running great. It only took about 2 days to get used to Windows 8.1 (I'm used to Windows 7 and Linux Mint), it's not that bad to figure out and learn.
There is not that much bloatware on this machine and it took only a few minutes to uninstall what I didn't want. Go through the settings and configure the machine the way you want, it's very easy.
The laptop is very quiet. I installed a Staples 4 port USB hub and added a wireless mouse with no problems at all. Plug & play. I installed Firefox as I HATE I.E. and imported my bookmarks with zero problems.
I can recommend this laptop without hesitation. It works great. If you're looking for a high end laptop this is NOT for you. Do your homework and stop complaining because you didn't do any research. READ ALL INFORMATION before you order ANY product so you know what you will get.
If you have questions about the NON optical drive version of this laptop just ask me.
This laptop was purchased purely with value in mind. I have a desktop already, but I was in the market for something mobile with a Windows OS that would get me through classes. Overall I can honestly say, for a brand new laptop, its pretty good bang for you buck. This does not mean it is not without any flaws, but rather you must accept the shortcuts taken when in this low-end market. While not blazing fast, and in no way truly comparable to an i series chip...this little guy is still an Intel and can handle all your general processes just fine. Yes it can handle some light multitasking without any real hiccups. Yes it can handle Photoshop and light Illustrator just fine. NO you will not be rendering and editing resource intensive videos on this. Yes you can even do some light gaming (minecraft and anything else it meets the requirements for), but you really shouldn't be having extended sessions of it. Its simply not made for it (in terms of cooling and the longevity of the processor). All in all, it gets the job done as long as you understand what your getting, and if you can somehow add a SSD you should get a pretty nice little boost in performance.
This really is probably the best only thing worth truly noting about this laptop. I bought it for $240, and for that price It boasts so pretty decent specs that are going to handle you day-to-day tasks without a problem.
- Hard Drive
In its defense half a TB is a solid amount of storage, and its boot time out the box really isn't unbearable by any means. That said, the 5400 RPM rate was still just far too slow for me. It's probably because I'm so used to my desktop solid states. Regardless, I had to swap it out and put in a SSD.
- Lack of ports
Does offer HDMI and a single USB3.0 port. Still only 2 USB ports total and only a 10/100 Lan connection.
- No optical drive
Really, this wasn't a big deal for me as I have an external drive if I absolutely need it. But, how often do the majority of us really use discs these days anyway.
- Nothing is removable
I mean absolutely nothing. If you want to replace something, which would likely be the HDD or battery, you have to completely unscrew the bottom and pry the top cover/keyboard off, which is actually fairly difficult. (see photo)
- No keyboard lights
More of a nuance, but other than actually seeing what is being typed, there is no visible indication light for Caps/Num Lock.
Somehow all these cons are bearable when you keep the value in mind!
