Asus U56 (Refurb) opinions? Tags: Asus Laptops Last response: November 28, 2011 12:21 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share wkp2101 November 25, 2011 2:54:03 PM Hello, Can't find much info on this laptop. Seems like a great deal. Don't think refurbished is an issue. Anyway, i am deciding between this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite... and this http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Laptop+/+Intel%26%23... anybody want to opine? More about : asus u56 refurb opinions Chainzsaw a b D Laptop November 25, 2011 3:43:45 PM The U56 looks pretty good. Has more storage, slower CPU (not by much though), and more RAM. I would go for the U56 if those are the only choices you have. Edit: The U56 also has 1 USB 3 port which makes it a no brainer in my opinion. Pair it up with a nice USB 3 thumb drive - and you have a very fast way of transferring files! wkp2101 November 25, 2011 4:54:23 PM thanks. What is USB 3 I haven't heard of it? Just a faster USB port? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Chainzsaw a b D Laptop November 28, 2011 12:21:10 PM Yes, it is approximately 10x faster than USB2 - so if you transfer lots of files via USB key and have a USB3 key to go with your USB3 port - it won't take long to transfer them.
