  • A. I have been all through that site you reference (URL= http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K55A&p=3&s=252) THERE IS NO USER MANUAL THERE!!! The only manual available at that site is several language manual for ‘User Guide for Windows 8’!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For example, the English language manual is at: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/Apps/eManual/e7495_Win8_User_Guide.pdf This is extremely frustrating – I have this laptop in my shopping cart but am waiting to review the USER Manual before committing but I am having second thoughts as perhaps the poor reviews of ASUS support are accurate.

  • A. I did try: http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K55A&p=3&s=252 again as suggested. The only manuals there are still just the various language versions of a ‘User Guide for Windows 8’!!!!!!!!!! In the meantime, I got a message from Walmart to either complete the purchase of the Asus K55A laptop that I had in my shopping cart for several days waiting to view a user manual or cancel it. So I cancelled it. Whole thing has been a complete waste of time!!!

I want to get this laptop but I'd like to have the total RAM of 8GB Does Walmart offer this with 8GB? Q: Does Walmart offer Asus K55A-RBR6 Laptop with the max 8GB RAM that it is capable of having installed? Answers A: Unfortunately Walmart does not offer this laptop with the max RAM. You can purchase the laptop and upgrade the RAM your self. Just remove the cover on the bottom and add the RAM stick in the slot. Q: Will the Slot Configuration allow me to just add a 2GB Stick to bring it up to the 8GB Max? That is, with the 6GB installed, is there an empty slot available?
by Jim 10/10/2012
3 answers
  • A. No, it has two slots for ram. It comes with a 2gb and a 4gb installed in it. You will have to buy a 4gb ram stick and swap it with the 2gb stick.

I decided it was time for a new laptop as I have my mothers old 2002 Dell which has to be plugged in to even turn on.. I purchased this laptop based on the specs (processor, RAM and GB storage) all great aspects at a great price ($488.00 bundled). The display and screen are awesome, very clear, great color, great positioning of the mouse/track pad, light weight etc. What I didn't pay attention too was the MP of the camera; being .3MP the quality is poor to me. I wanted something I could use for the purpose of skype / face chat because my cheap external camera on my other laptop wasn't cutting it (I use skype every day as i'm in a long distance relationship so clarity is important to me!). Well, it turns out there was no difference in my external camera quality and the quality of the one built in to this, so I decided to return it. I recommend this for all other reasons besides the webcam!!! I just did not want to go out and spend additional money on an external camera when I feel the one built in should be enough :)

When it comes to laptops I am very picky. I researched alot and wanted one with decent specs at a good price. Never had an Asus and didn't think they were very popular but apparently they aren't half bad. Actually this laptop is excellent. Got it mainly because of the i5 processor and 6GB of RAM. Even though it's not quad core it still has hyper-threading which is very convenient. I also wanted to make sure this would run some PC games fairly well with decent framerate. At first I was concerned because of the UMA graphics but surprisingly the games I have played run great. For example I can run WoW on High graphics with a framerate of 17-25 and thats with alot on-screen. Dumb that to low settings and a whopping framerate of 60. Just one example. Anyways the pros: -Thin -Very fast -Built to last -Beautiful screen -Amazing raw power even before turbo boost kicks in. -Hyper-threading -Long battery life -Good price for what you get. -HDMI port -awesome trackpad - and so many other pros...i'd be here a while listing them all. CONS: -umm...i'm thinking. Obviously this isn't the best laptop in the world but it's pretty awesome for the price/specs. I highly recommend it and this saying applies to laptops especially: "you get what you pay for" so don't be afraid to spend a bit more to get this laptop. It's worth the money for sure.

I needed a new computer for school, currently I am doing a lot of online, and word document related things, as well as gaming, music and skype. So I am on this computer everyday on average 5-6 hrs per day maybe more. This is my life. This computer was about 100 over what I wanted to spend, but I loved it, even looked at it in the store, and i had to have it. Considering the processor, the memory and hard drive, it was a great price so I went ahead and got it and I love this computer!!!! I have used the web cam and everyone says its pretty good. I love the face recognition (smart logon) to sign in, it has its moments and the lighting is sometimes a factor but for the most part i like that feature. A few times smart logon has frozen, I can still log in with a password though, and once you power down normally it is fine. The key pad for me (being right handed) is great, its off center to the left so it gives my lower arm less of an awkward angle The keyboard does have space between the keys, something my last laptop didnt have so its been weird adjusting. The charging port thing is also in a great spot on the left side which has proved to be veryy convenient for me. The battery life is better than I thought it would be, I love all the power plans, entertainment, battery saver, ect. Like I said along with the constant usage, Im not always plugged in, and it lasts for me. I have not yet taken it out yet, Im not back to schhol yet, so Ive always been near a power source. The computer is also great for gaming, I can have internet open, stream league of legends and music (Itunes) with no problems. The HDMI port is also awesome, Ive hooked up a few times to the tv with a cord for gaming and it was amazingg. I guess thats about all I have to say (that I can think of) but the bottom line is, this is a great computer, it meets everything I wanted and then some, and for what you get the price is great.

This laptop has been amazing so far. The touch pad is awesome, works just like a MacBook. The only problem I've been having with it is that i have had two occasions where it freezes up while turning on, leaving me with a black screen. it won't recognize that i have the charger plugged in when this happens, but i take out the battery and put it back in and it works fine again. It freaked me out so hopefully it doesn't happen often.

Asus makes top quality products. I won't go into details such as how pretty it is, or it boots up fast, etc., nor will I talk at length about tech differences. It is an absolutely brilliant computer in terms of build quality, features and performance. It will do any consumer a great job. One note to consider. Intel has come out with the series 3 chip, which replaces the series 2 chip that this model has. It has better performance. If you can, get the series 3. Where the model lists Core i5-2450M, if it were a series 3, it would be i5-3450M. The i5 series chips are an improvement over the i3, which have been so popular. At the present time, there are the i3, i5 and i7. The i3 is still very popular, but the i5 is a bit newer and as software gets more demanding, it is something to consider. Unless you do very high level gaming, a lot of number crunching or serious video editing, the i7 chip is a bit expensive. That noted, if you are into gaming, or serious business use, the i5 (this model chip) is still a very sound investment. A mom and pop business or personal use enthusiast would not know the difference between the i3 and i5. But, the extra power is there if you need it. If you go to other online sites, you will find models with series 3 chips at a reasonably comparable price. Being a quad core processor, the hyper-threading and turbo boost is helpful for video editing and gaming, in that it can temporarily boost the clock speed up to 2.9GHz. Oh yeah, the M stands for mobile, and 450 is the SKU number. I would upgrade the RAM to 8GB. While WalMart doesn't offer chips in stores, Kingston (great brand) can upgrade with a 4GB chip to 8GB for around $22-25. This computer with 8GB of RAM will be a fantastic investment, particularly if you own an older computer.

I have had this laptop for almost a month. I bought it to replase a aging netbook. It has run great for me with no problems. I don't play games or do much intense work on this laptop. I got it to web surf , facebook and use itunes. It will charge my ipad 3 and I like that a lot. I does have a cheap feel to it so I don't know if I would recomend it for a student. The screen is good and clear with crisp colors. If you are looking for a good value for the money I think this would be a good buy.

I went on Amazon and only found it 1.02 cents cheaper. With none of the advantages of Walmart guarentee, warrentee and no shipping with site to store. This is my third site to store purchase and I will do it again, it has been such a good experience. The lap top took longer than they thought, originally, to arrive, but it was such a great deal that my techy friends were intensely jelous.

Having thoroughly researched laptops with this specification set, I found the ASUS to be the best value, period. Then, when the fine folks at Walmart reduced the price by another $100, well, the decision was made. And I am very happy with that decision. Won't find a better value anywhere.
