Hello. I'm in the market for a new laptop. I use mine for internet, business activity, and personal matters. The only games I play are Solitaire and Hangman.
I stopped in a store over the weekend and one of the salesmen recommended the Asus X550CA-DB51 and I have some questions.
1. I've never heard of Asus (until this weekend). Is it a reliable brand?
2. The Asus has a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i%-3337U Dual core processor. My current laptop has a 2.0 GHz Inten Core 2 Duo Processor P7350. Doesn't this mean my current laptop is faster and better since it has a 2.0 processor rather than a 1.8?
3. My current laptop has 4 USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA port, 1 HDMI port, and 1 LAN. The Asus has only 2 USB ports and no LAN. Should this be a cause for concern? (I normally connect a printer, scanner, phone, and external drive.)
4. What other questions should I be asking? What other comparisons should I make?
