We often receive a question about laptop computers which are under $1000. Considering the recent situation of the dollar currencies, it is very difficult to find a good system for this generation in new generations, or to be satisfied if we find it.
Here, the ASUS X550VX, which uses reduced speed technology with Skylake and Maxwell, has got our attention. Full model name: Asus X550VX-DM324D Intel Core i7 6700HQ 2.6GHz / 3.5GHz 8GB 1TB 15.6 “FHD Portable Computer

This is not a review, but the CPU, GPU and RAM balance, ample storage space, empty slot for RAM upgrade are really good features.
Cons: No SSD, no additional SSD slot, and keyboard colors hard to read at low light. Far from the ROG series. Also the panel viewing angle is far from the IPS level.
On the other hand, it is a laptop computer that can afford the needs of many users, from entry level to middle level.
