Review Asus K52JR-SX059V Notebook

 

Core i3 Office Assistant. Intel's new processors are infiltrating

Quiet and cool; Good performance; Bright display

Very low contrast; Obtuse viewing angles; Yielding keys; High pitched sound; Short battery life

Core i3 alternatives with a stronger graphic are currently sparse. Gamers should look at Samsung's R580 Hawk (Nvidia GT 330M) or Dell's Studio 1558. Both have a stronger Core i5 processor. The Deviltech Fire DTX with ATI's newest HD 5650 is also worth...

Asus K52Dr Review

 

Although the Asus K52Dr offers pretty decent specs and performance, at $814 it's not as well-rounded a multimedia notebook as its competitors, and it doesn't last long enough on a charge. In this price range, we much prefer the Dell XPS 15 ($864),...

Decent graphics performance, Good Wi-Fi throughput, Fast 7,200-rpm hard drive

Short battery life, Tinny speakers, Poorly placed touchpad, DVD drive opens too easily

Asus K52JT-XT1R

 

The touchpad felt nice under the fingertips, but had its flaws: It was fine when skimming from one side of the screen to the other, but when I slowed down or made a fine detailed movement, even for something as basic as selecting text, the cursor began...

Quad-core processor. Dedicated AMD graphics. Big 640GB hard drive

Jumpy touchpad. Chokes on high-end games

The well equipped Asus K52JT-XT1R desktop replacement laptop runs toward the front of the pack with its quad-core processor, dedicated graphics card, and sub-$1000 price tag.

Asus P52F review

 

The Asus P52F-SO006X is a tough and usable business laptop, although portability is somewhat limited

Decent performance ; Good touchpad ; Shock protected hard drive ; Windows 7 Pro

Some keyboard flex ; Basic integrated graphics

Decent While It Lasted

 

I am less disappointed with the failure of the laptop than i am the customer service of ASUS, talking tho them was a nightmare. They may want to hire more intelligent people who at least know what a heatsink is and not tell customers, "we do not offer...

An affordable machine that can run most modern games on low to mid graphical settings. Has decent boot times and overall a solid amount of power to do most things

Runs extremely hot and will eventually cause system crashes due to excess heat causing the BIOS to force a power down

Consumer review by:

Very Happy

 

Got this for my son. Runs great and looks great. Accidental damage warrant provides some peace of mind with a teenager using it

Bloatwae, as usual but it was easy to remove. Battery life is not great but reviews noted this so I was expecting this
