It can easily cope with typical everyday programs such as email, Skype (HD webcam for video chatting) or browser, guaranteeing their flawless run.A pre-installed latest Windows 8 operating system works fine giving you some taste of future, though a touchscreen for Windows 8 would be more beneficial.
2. Students. An affordable price makes Asus X552EA-DH41 an average choice as a student laptop. Besides, the size of 2.3 kg is standard and allows students who are always on a go to carry the laptop effortlessly. One more minor advantage would be the 4-Cell Lithium-Ion battery that corresponds to 4 hours of work without any charge.
3. Gamers. If you’re a professional gamer and like playing new and, more importantly, demanding games with fancy graphics, forget it! Asus X552EA-DH41 has got a slow graphic card that gives little boost with games. Older games would run well, but serious gaming is out of the question.

5. Power Users. In general, Asus DH41’s performance might be enough for power users. The 1.5GHz Quad Core Processor provides nice power for standard applications. The 4GB RAM is good for occasional power use, but not enough for complex programs.
Unless you’re into big files, the 500GB Hard Drive is quite enough for most users. CD & DVD burner for those who work with disc media, 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output and SC card reader for those who work with peripheral equipment (scanner, printer, camera, TV etc.).
