Not every laptop needs to be a tiny, lightweight ultrabook with a super-high resolution. To paraphrase Sigmund Freud, sometimes a laptop is just a laptop. Or a computing device that works well and does its best to not frustrate you. One or the other.
Enter the Asus Vivobook V550CA-DB71T (MSRP $899.99). This rig combines a fast Intel Core i7 dual-core processor clocked at 2GHz, 1TB of hard drive space for your legally-acquired media, a solid 8GB of RAM, and a DVD drive.
