Ultimate Design & Extensive Connectivity

As mentioned earlier, ASUS X555DA might not wow you with its design, but once you get your hands to this laptop, you’ll start noticing all small positive details. We’ve been surprised that this laptop is ergonomically designed, and no matter where you use it – it’s always going to make you feel comfortable.

 .. it comes with ports such as VGA port, 3-in-1 SD card reader, and even DVD Reader&Writer – which is really rare and hard to find nowadays..

A combination of silver and black color in a stainless steel finish really adds up to the performance, creating a really solid laptop. It’s very lightweight, yet, on the other hand, a very sturdy laptop that can be taken anywhere without a worry in the back of your mind.

It might not be all glamour, but it’s definitely a laptop with a solid design and even better yet performance.

Asus X555DA ports

Other than the ergonomic design & combination of colors, what we’ve really loved is the number of ports included. Now, you have to understand that this is a fairly new laptop, and yet it comes with ports such as VGA port, 3-in-1 SD card reader, and even DVD Reader&Writer – which is really rare and hard to find nowadays.

Now, just one more thing you have to consider is how light and slim this laptop is, even with all ports integrated. It’s really a first-choice for any traveler out there.

Ergonomic Keyboard & IceCool Technology

First, of, let’s start by saying that we really love the way Asus fit a full-sized keyboard in a 15.6-inch laptop. Not only they managed to fit it so neatly, but the keyboard itself is ergonomically designed to provide hours of comfortable typing.

.. the keys felt like they’re floating underneath our fingers, yet provided a solid feel & response..

If you do a lot of typing, we’d even recommend this laptop to a fellow writer. The keys come with a back-assembled design that provides depth of 1.6mm, which gives a great key travel.

One of the most unique technologies we’ve seen in laptops (and believe us, we’ve seen a lot) is the IceCool Technology. Now, you might now know what IceCool Technology does or stands for, but let us explain.

How many times have you felt your wrists sweaty or burning from the heat as you’re typing during the summer (or even when the laptop reaches a bit higher temperatures)?

IceCool Technology is made to keep the palm rest at a comfortable temperature. Even when the ASUS X555DA is reaching its maximum temperatures, the palm rest will always be cold & comfortable.

The Verdict

When you’re looking for a new laptop, it’s not all about the fashion yet what this laptop can do for you and what does it offer.

Considering what ASUS X555DA offers for the price it costs, it’s worth every dollar it costs. Now, it’s up to you to determine if it’s a good fit for your needs or not.

We’ve spent hours testing this laptop throughout a few weeks, and there are very few things we disliked. In other words, we loved what it offered and it provided a really positive experience.

It’s a laptop that was built with the user in mind. Featuring the number of ports, offering ergonomic keyboard, innovating IceCool Technology, and many other features – no matter how small or big they are, they make this laptop really enjoyable when combined with the configuration it offers.

However, if you simply don’t find ASUS X555DA to be a great fit for your needs – going with a laptop such as Dell Latitude E7250 instead is a smart choice.
