£270 Asus X53E laptop: A super deal for the storage-hungry user

Hop on eBay to grab this deal from Save-on-laptops if you're after an affordable laptop with tons of storage.

The laptop on offer is an Asus X53E laptop available for £270 with free delivery and 270 Nectar points. You can add an additional one year warranty for £40.

There are a few salient points about the laptop’s hardware; firstly it is a thin-and-light laptop at 2.5Kg, which is only marginally heavier than the heaviest Ultrabooks around. This doesn’t prevent Asus from throwing in a DVD writer.

The company hasn’t cut corners when it comes to the system memory (6GB of RAM) or the onboard storage (640GB hard disk drive). Where it did was for the processor when it chose a dual-core Intel Celeron B815 model clocked at 1.6GHz with 2MB L2 cache.

Other features include a 15.6in 1,366 x 768 pixels display, Windows 7 Home Premium, GbE, three USB ports, up to four hours battery life, IceCool cooling technology, VGA and HDMI ports, a card reader and a dedicated keypad.

Altogether, the X53E is an excellent all-rounder and don’t let the Celeron inside label dissuade prospective customers from the overall superb value for money this laptop delivers.
