Review Asus B53J Notebook


Longevity and reliability – were important aspects for Asus when designing the B53J. This is applies to the case, as well as the adopted hardware and the length of the warranty, which lasts for three years.

Very good application performance, Switchable graphics solution, With good HD 5470 graphics performance, Comprehensive communications features, Security features, Dockingport, The focus on longevity and reliability

Rather dark display with low contrast, Arrangement of interfaces, Heat generation on the case under load, A brighter display with better contrast

Asus N53SV-A1


The rest of the features, including HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, a multimedia card slot, and a 2-megapixel Webcam, are what you would expect from a laptop of this caliber. A tray-ejecting DVD burner is situated on the right side and isn't as impressive as...

Lightning fast quad-core Core i7 processor. Nvidia GeForce 540M chip makes it a viable gaming laptop. USB 3.0. Appealing design. Cavernous, fast spinning hard drive

Poorly designed keyboard. No Blu-ray or higher resolution screen option. No option for bigger battery

The Asus N53SV-A1 desktop replacement laptop has more power than most people know what to do with, armed with a quad-core Core i7 processor and Nvidia's latest graphics gem.

Takes any game I have thrown at it.


Excellent value and a very good laptop for the 1000-1100 dollar range. Very good sound as well. Updated on Sep 5, 2011

Very good at gaming and every day laptop. It works better than any desktop I have had

It could use a lighted keyboard

Total Disappointment, a hi spec that's unreliable


Don't be tempted by the high spec to buy it...!!

In theory it has lots of power, and the screen is clear and bright and great (loud) in built stereo speakers

Despite 6 GB of Ram, application opening and processing of multiple functions is very average. It freezes about once every 2 days and I am not running anything exceptionally demanding on it. I have seen moans about Windows & on this machine before and

business practical


Intended usage for my new laptop: - VMWare - Websphere development in Linux (RHEL) via VM guest - General technical writing and illustration - IBM RAD tools - Eclipse - General systems design

I needed a sturdy business laptop and wanted to stay with Asus given my positive experience with their N61 (i7) model ; I was looking for a better keyboard, cooler runtime, and something a little more rugged and ready for airline beatings (spills,...

This is a nit since a 4-core processor is a little overboard for mobile computing... but this laptop has an i7 620m CPU - it's a 2 core processor. With hyper-threading you'll see 4 'cores' in the Performance Monitor. And, to the CPU's credit, it's...

Windows XP


Manufacturer Warranty Accidental Damage Warranty 1 year ASUS Accidental Damage Warranty - Drops, Fire, Spill, Surge Parts 3 years limited Labor 3 years limited

Looking for a laptop computer that will run Windows XP and Windows 7 this is it. Buy a 80 GB SSD drive for XP and keep Windows 7 on the org drive. I have a business and some of the business software that I use will only work on XP to date

use to own three


I bought 3 of these, returned all 3 right after a month of having them. 1 of the three was sent to Asus support the same day i received it. It came back 2 weeks later and come to find out, all they did was re-install the system software. Frustrated at...

Fast machine. Loved the ability for 3 screens, nice touch-pad, battery life wasn't to bad

would freeze when moving from plugged in to battery or just when switching video cards ; Started freezing at login ; The worst customer service I have ever experienced ; keypad feels a little flimsy along with the battery
