The new release Asus X551MA-RCLN03 15.6" Laptop PC Features a 1MB L2 cache and 1.86GHz processor speed with Burst up to 2.13GHz. Giving you the processing power and 4GB DDR3 memory for the power of multi tasking and at a price less than $310 this really must be a considered choice to those looking to replace their laptop.

Key Features:
Intel Celeron N2815 Processor with Intel HD graphics, 15.6" high-definition display, 4GB DDR3 Memory / 500GB hard drive, Multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive / Built-in webcam & microphone, 2x USB 1x HDMI Windows 8.1 64-bit.

The Asus X551MA-RCLN03 is in the budget range of laptops that we really liked due to the functionality and ease of use. This is by no means a laptop for gamers and is more aimed at the college students, light computer user that needs a laptop for the more basic of tasks such as word processing, daily internet use like facebook, emails and youtube. Now don't get me wrong it can do a lot more but it would be unfair to say that a power user would benefit from using it as it would simply not offer the power that is required.

Asus X551MA-RCLN03 Review
The ASUS comes with 4GB of non expandable memory which is something to consider for those that are looking to add more memory in the future but will not be a problem to most as the 4GB is ample for the most basic of computing needs. We did like the 15.6" high-definition display with 1366 x 768 resolution that does offer a nice clear image whether viewing photos or movies so no complaints in that department. The units dimensions are as follows 9.90 x 15 x 1.20 inches weighing 4.7 pounds so it's not too big and bulky to use on the move.

Overall the Asus X551MA-RCLN03 does offer value for money it has a nice design and full size chiclet keyboard and would fulfill most users needs and desires. On first look and feel its does feel a bit cheap and flimsy but you can't really expect a unibody aluminium case for such a low price.
