The Asus X553SA-BHCLN10 is a cheap entry-level notebook with a 15.6-inch HD display, Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of system memory, and a 500GB hard drive.

The Celeron CPU included in the X553SA-BHCLN10 is the N3050 from the latest power-efficient and cool-running Braswell chip family. The N3050 indeed consumes low amounts of power – 6 Watts versus 15W of the popular Intel Core series CPUs. But, computing performance is good only for the common basic tasks like web surfing, email checking, work in Word, Excel, and other Office applications, or movie playback. It won’t perform so well during intensive duties such as video editing, which remain the domain of the faster Core-series processors.

RAM and HDD capacities of 4GB and 500GB respectively are standard for the budget notebook category. 4GB RAM is enough for basic multitasking and will satisfy most of the home and office users. The hard disk offers enough space for common programs and users’ files but it’s generally a slow storage device and you won’t experience blazing fast program load times with it.

As for the display, it doesn’t stands out from the crowd in any sense. The HD 1366-by-768-pixel resolution doesn’t deliver sharpness of Full HD screens and the panel doesn’t provide wide viewing angles since it lacks IPS technology. However, the screen specs are typical for a low-cost notebook like the Asus X553SA-BHCLN10.
