Review Asus N53SV Notebook

 

The new midrange. Asus promises pure multimedia entertainment wit

Attractive design; Matt, high-end surfaces; Solid case; Excellent application performance; Good 3D performance; Always cool surfaces; Low noise office mode possible; Excellent soundscape

Interfaces all in the front area; Spongy keys; Average display with reflective surface; Moderate battery life

Basically everything that calls itself a strong 15 inch multimedia notebook. Most existing candidates don't really have a chance of even coming close without Sandy Bridge. Soonest, machines like the Sony F13Z or the Dell XPS 15. Otherwise, you will...

Excellent performance ; Large display

Only single-band, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi ; Weak touchpad and buttons

If speed is your passion, you'll like this all-purpose unit from Asus, but its input ergonomics are weak.

The 15.6in Asus N53SV offers a dedicated graphics chip, Blu-ray drive and Core i5 processor in an attractive chassis for under £700.

Great all-round performance ; Good build and design ; Good built-in speakers

Mediocre display

A versatile machine that handles gaming, multimedia and productivity tasks equally well, the Asus N53SV offers excellent value and decent build quality. Its looks err on the serious side a bit more than is strictly necessary, but its design remains...

Asus N53SV review

 

Asus's good-looking N53 series laptops have proven to be some of the faster all-purpose notebooks on the market. The latest Asus N53SV model is as well, only more so thanks to its new state of the art Second Generation Intel Core CPU. Our test...

The Asus N53SV has some excellent features. The price performance ratio is nice, and it's never been whacked with an ugly stick. If the minor keyboard issues don't bother you, it's worth a look.

Sound quality better than the usual fare ; Quite a lot of power for the price ; Two-year warranty

Keyboard flexes a bit while typing

The N53SV is the laptop to get if you want power, but you're on a budget. We'd love a higher-quality keyboard, but this is only a small bugbear in an otherwise excellent laptop.

We review a new Sandy Bridge contender from Asus in the form of the powerful Core i7 Asus N53SV.

It’s not difficult to see that the N53SV's speedy i7 processor and excellent sound combines to make this stylish Asus as comfortable in the office as it is at home. It retails for a recommended R10 999.

Asus N53SV review

 

The Asus N53SV is a 15.6-inch home entertainment laptop with the latest Intel Sandy Bridge CPU and Nvidia GeForce GT540M graphics. It's a powerful laptop with some interesting features.

Overall, the Asus N53SV is a very good candidate for a powerful 15-inch laptop with the latest hardware and features at an acceptable price. And even though Asus makes a big deal about the N53SV’s onboard sound, we think the laptop is a revelation as...

Great laptop

 

Very nice resolution for 15.6" screen ; 1gb gt 540 nvidia gfx ; Great for simple server running/ testing locally ; Example.. Microsoft visual studio 2010 ; Was shipped on time no problems with any hardware nor software ; Runs ; Borderlands 2 on high...

There are no cons for me so far ; Though with all laptops and computers try to keep the ventilation clear because running high settings will heat up fast

Great laptop.

 

I bought this for my wife for Christmas last year. Yanked the HD out and put an SSD in it. Upgraded the ram to 16GB (I know, overkill). . I had my own Win7x64 home dvd, so I did a clean fresh install (using the key that came with the laptop). Popped...

Sexy ; Comes with drivers and utilities disk ; Killer battery life ; Ram upgradable to 16 GB ; Wireless works awesome ; Nice keypad ; Fingerprint resistant surfaces

I honestly can't think of any
