Short Review Asus K53SK-SX021V Notebook

 

The price is hot. Asus proves with the K53SK-SX021V that you don

Relatively low power usage; Metal keyboard environment; Moderate emissions; Good performance; Graphics switching

Somewhat unclean manufacturing; Reflective and cheap display; Meager connectivity options

Other price-performance sensations in the 15-inch format. There we have for example the Lenovo IdeaPad Y570 or the Packard Bell EasyNote TS13HR.
