For a long time I have been making laptop reviews, since yesterday I bought a brand new ASUS X552M laptop on a local Georgian Carrefour shop I decided to describe my first impressions and a few photos of my new best buddy. This model I believe is only available in Europe, for North American customers I believe there is an ASUS D550MAV or something.
I could probably buy this one or even a better one for even a cheaper price on Amazon (and that's the thing I'm actually recommending to others) but since I just returned to Georgia I needed a quick solution, and by saying quick I mean - right now!
So I went to a local shopping place - Tbilisi Mall and bought the best I could get.

Pretty slim suitcase actually
Lovely cover of ASUS X552M
Although I must admit that cover gets greasy pretty fast (unless you are working in gloves)

Since this laptop come with FreeDOS - I opted to install a Windows 8.1. I did all the setup myself (one of the easiest installations I have ever done) and shortly my laptop looked like this:

And just shorlty I started to do another blog post using my brand new laptop

I got this laptop for 899 GEL ($377) and I'm very happy for the price and performance I have gotten so far.
