It is powered by an Intel i7-3610QM processor, a quad-core mobile model which has 1MB L2 and 6MB L3 cache. Based on Ivy Bridge architecture, its cores run at 2.3GHz, with a massive overclock of 3.1GHz. As expected, it features Intel’s HD Graphics 4000 graphics subsystem.
The rest of the specification reads as follows; 6GB of RAM, a 500GB hard disk drive, a DVD writer, an aluminium chassis with a texture finish, Windows 7 Home Premium, Asus’ SonicMaster lite audio technology, a 15.6in 1,366x768 pixels monitor, a webcam, three USB ports, a card reader, a LAN port, Wi-Fi, HDMI, VGA and a numeric keypad.
Asus has also thrown in its Super Hybrid Engine II which allows the laptop to almost behave like a smartphone with an “always-on, Instant-on” user experience, allowing the K55A to resume from sleep mode in two seconds and offer a stand time of 14 days.
The product comes with a one year global guarantee and will be back in stock on 22 December according to Amazon. Check out our review of the Asus K55A laptop to discover the pros and cons.
