Asus K55A Windows 8 laptop down to £349

It’s quite rare to come across a laptop that sports a blue colour scheme and even rarer to come across one which packs a 1TB hard disk drive and sells for less than £350.

But that's exactly what this Asus K55A deal is offering at the moment, as it is available at that price from, coming with free delivery. The tablet runs on Windows 8 and is powered by an Intel dual-core processor, the Celeron B830. Note that the new Celerons have nothing in common with their ancestors since that they are based on new core architecture.

The K55A comes with 6GB of RAM, a 15.6in 1,366 x 768 pixel display, a card reader, an HDMI socket and three USB ports, Bluetooth, a webcam, SRS Premium Surround with Altec Lansing speakers, a DVD writer, an Ethernet port plus the ability to save data automatically when the battery falls to five per cent charge.

Aesthetically, the laptop features an aluminium shell with an island-style keyboard and is available in black, red and white flavours. Moreover, Asus claims that the K55A can resume from sleep in only two seconds.
