Asus S500C Laptop Repair – Windows 10 Upgrade
Upgraded Windows 10 fresh from the recovery partition of the Asus 5500C Series Laptop for the customer from Thornhill Ontario.
The world of 15-inch ultrabooks has always felt odd to me: Intel’s dream of superthin Windows laptops carried over to a big, wide chassis never seemed right, whether it was theback in 2012 or this year’s Asus VivoBook S500CA, a budget-range touch-screen Windows 8 laptop in 2013.
On the other hand, the $699 S500CA (even less, at some retailers) has an attractive price, a clean, good-looking design, booming speakers, and a touch display that’s responsive and bright, albeit only 1,366×768.
The larger footprint, and its middle-of-the-road battery life, ensure it isn’t a killer laptop. But if you’re into big screens and don’t want to spend a lot, this isn’t a bad bet — and its processor and performance add up to a better overall value than the similarly large, but slightly more expensive laptops like the still represent a better bet.
The Asus in review includes an ULV 1.7 GHz Core i5-3317U with integrated HD 4000 graphics, 6 GB DDR3 RAM, a 720p display and a 500 GB HDD with 24 GB dedicated SSD cache. Those yearning for discrete graphics can opt for the VivoBook S550CM model with GeForce graphics. Regardless, the S500CA is one of the least expensive 15.6-inch touchscreen Ultrabooks in its size class and category. Find out in this review how this Asus fares against some of its closest competitors like the 15.6-inch Acer Aspire V5-571P and Sony Vaio T15 Touch.
