ASUS Essential P55VA Pro Reviews

Notebookcheck‘s review Edit

The Asus P55VA offers good system performance. It is also very quiet and does not get hot. These are good characteristics for an office notebook. We also like the matte display. The battery runtimes are acceptable but could be better. The biggest weakness is the price. Asus wants 650 to 700 Euros, a high price for the notebook. The Vostro 3560 is available for under 500 Euros with the same specifications. Even the ProBook is available for under 500 Euros, which makes it very hard to find arguments for the P55VA. Asus itself offers better devices in the 600 to 700 Euros price range. You can get an Asus B43E (Core i3-2350M), a fully adequate 14-inch business notebook with docking-port, TPM, eSATA and ExpressCard slot for around 620 Euros. ProBook 4545s and ThinkPad Edge E535 are suitable for users that are interested in quiet notebooks in all scenarios. Both devices also offer very good input devices and good battery runtimes. The Vostro 3560 offers lots of configuration options. For example, the device can be ordered with or without dedicated graphics (Radeon HD 7670M). Even a Full-HD display is available.
