Asus X501A Notebook Instant On Driver
The XA is a relative bargain considering it's priced near the bargain no-name laptops with slow AMD CPUs that you probably can't get even basic things for like a replacement battery a year later. Asus is a big name, should be around for many years, and they use high quality parts.

The AC adapter, for example, is common across many of their and Acer's models and very inexpensive. Replacement batteries are also inexpensive. And you get more for your money than from Asus X501A Notebook Instant On, HP or Lenovo unless you get a refurb or closeout deal. This laptop is significanly lighter and thinner than most 15 inch laptops in this price range. To me that really makes a difference.
It's easier to carry around, slip into a backpack or messenger bag, or even have on your lap.
It's sort of a poor man's Ultrabook for about half or even one third the price. And, with the i3 CPU, it blows away any netbook in terms of performance for not a lot more money and you get a much bigger screen.
And, unlike a Chromebook, you can run any software you want and store hundreds of GB worth of videos, etc. The glossy screen is fairly bright and sharp.
Pictures and videos look good when viewed straight on. The fan is impressively quiet as is the GB hard drive.

I often use a laptop in very quiet areas and many can be noticeably noisy. This one is dead quiet except for some very faint noises from the drive and, if you manage to get the CPU working hard for a while, the fan speed will gradually ramp up but it's still far quieter than most laptops--even the Apple models. I have Dell and Acer laptops that cycle their cooling fan on and off with more of an annoying Asus X501A Notebook Instant On or nothing cooling approach.
The XA is far superior and very quiet. The performance is impressive with the i3. Even with lots of windows open, a streaming video playing, etc.
It boots fast, wakes up from sleep very fast, and has good battery life while sleeping many older laptops don't. It also runs cool. Even on a bed or sofa blocking all the vents on the bottom it still doesn't get very warm. Intel's latest CPUs are fairly amazing for power efficiency and Asus clearly did a Asus X501A Notebook Instant On job with the cooling design.
ASUS X501 notebooks offer a colorful choice with a thin and light design
The touchpad is better than average once you get the right driver and settings. With the right setup, it supports all the popular multi-touch actions yet doesn't freak out if your palms hit it while typing a common problem with similar large multi-touch gesture touchpads on other laptops.

Even some big names like Dell and Samsung don't have touchpads that work this well. It has a USB 3 port which is also a bit rare in the bargain laptop category.

It makes a big difference if you have a USB 3 portable drive or fast thumb drive. Compared to a Dell or Sony the Asus doesn't have much bloatware pre-installed. Asus X501A Notebook Instant On was an anti-virus trial but it's otherwise relatively free of crapware. The battery life is better than average for this price range and level of performance.
I get around 5 hours of constant use with web browsing, streaming videos, etc. The keyboard is decent.
It feels a little bit cheap and is a bit noisier than some. The layout is a bit cramped in some areas because of including a number pad but I've used much worse. I can type fairly fast with few errors. If you don't like island keyboards, however, you probably won't like Asus X501A Notebook Instant On one either.
