So, I have that laptop since October 2013, almost 4 years and there are my conclusions:
1. It's a great laptop!
2. The only one real con is GeForce GT 750M which is so old, and run modern games at mostly low/sometimes medium settings.
3. Upgrades I have made:
- replaced optidrive with SSD, and transferred a system to it. Using original HDD now as a storage only;
- replaced wireless WiFi+BT card with new Intel card which supports 802.11ac and BT4.0;
- installed additional RAM, now it have 12GB in total, which is enough.
4. Touchpad is so perfect and comfortable! Never had a problem with it.
5. Battery life 4 hours now reduced to about 2.5 hours only, after almost 4 years!
6. Love the stock external mini-subwoofer, it really helps when i far from home for 4-5 months.
7. Perfect LG display with Splendid save-my-eyes mode.
8. Also, never had any problems with a keyboard, as someone noticed below.

For now, considering replacing it for Vivobook Pro 15 N580, ever it have a 1050ti, not just 1050.

That's all, thanks for reading!

OK guys i have this laptop almost 2 years . The only upgrade you should make its a SSD hard drive . Asus made awesome job . If you want one multimedia laptop this is the one . I play some games but with normal settings . THIS IS NOT A GAMING LAPTOP . The sound is very good & the quality also. Nice screen and nice keyboard . 9/10 from me .

This laptop is amazing, i have had mine for over a year. no hardware issues, gaming performance is quite good. there are a number of games that will only run on medium settings but still looks really good. the matte screen is amazing, works outside with no issues, very wide viewing angles. the touchpad is pretty nice as well, your finger glides across it smoothly and the smartgesture software from asus makes it very easy to use

10/10 will love this laptop forever <3

Hey guys - just a tip on this line of products from an owner of an N550LF.

I'm a huge, huge supporter of Asus laptops. If I could choose any brand, I would choose them - their design is usually perfect and their laptops are powerful for the price. If you're on a budget, holy shit, they're fantastic.


This line is atrocious. I mean this with every bit of sincerity. Here are a few things to note that happened with my N550LF:

  • The touchpad is horrendous. Uncomfortable, no real certainty as to where you're meant to press on it to click.
  • The display on my N550LF (which is because it's touchscreen, mainly, is terrible. You CANNOT see the screen outside. I'm not exaggerating here - any sun glare on the screen and you're going to have a bad time.
  • The hinge cover between the monitor and the base snapped off. Multiple people have reported this issue. It's weak.
  • The disk drive cover is plain bad. The eject button is bizarrely placed, and more importantly: mine fell off. I had to superglue the cover back on.
  • Did I mention that both the main headphone jack and the mini subwoofer jack died within the first three months of ownership? I rely on a USB soundcard at this point.

And now we come to this week. After a year and a half of ownership.

The keyboard is failing. Badly. Specifically, the 'Enter', 'b', 'n', 'Ctrl' and 'Space' keys have all effectively died. But here's the thing: this is a common occurrence with these Asus laptops! A complete hardware fault that would require keyboard replacement. So sure - I could replace the keyboard - but why should I waste ~£50 replacing a keyboard with all these other ridiculous build quality issues?

'Nuff said. I almost feel betrayed by Asus as a company, lol. I may buy from them again, but please, please, please: avoid these laptops.

Why do not you check the kind of sata be ?

Ex: Sata 2 Or Sata 3

It more useful for someone who want to upgrade SSD if mainboard support sata3

throttling sounds horrible to me, as I have had Asus n43sn notebook for 2 years and it also constantly throttles when gaming (what is worse - it triggers hardware interrupts jamming CPU until reboot). What is the point of buying a car with 220km/h speed potential, which can only reach 100km/h in practice?? Sounds like Asus (fair for many other manufacturers too) is making fool of its customers, as I doubt that their engineers are not aware of the problem before mass producing the notebook
Many thanks to Notebookcheck for flagging this drawback in this particular model

Upgrade your BIOS with version 205 from Asus website for the Graphic Card to work again properly.
