This is getting repetitive, the N5500 with its Core2Duo processor and 1GB of memory make a great successor to the N5200 Pro.

The backup feature plays an important role for businesses and the N5200 had some issues with completing a backup in an acceptable amount of time. The N5500 has really improved in this area and is now a real option for larger user groups.
