The Asus X553MA-BPD0705I is a typical run-of-the-mill budget laptop. It has a non-touch display with the standard screen resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels and a non-backlit keyboard with numeric pad. Computing and display are powered by the Intel Pentium N3540 quad-core processor with the Intel HD series integrated graphics. It is an entry-level chip, but still suitable for flawless work on everyday tasks and noticeably faster than the common Intel Celeron budget CPUs. You can read a review of the N3540 here. 4GB of RAM is satisfactory for multitasking scenarios of the average user. If you need more, you can add an additional 4GB RAM module for a total of 8GB. The included 750GB hard drive spinning at 5,400 rpm isn’t insanely spacious and is quite slow type of storage, but it’s bigger than the usual 500GB HDDs and can serve for normal functioning of Windows and programs.
