An excellent entertainment laptop, the ASUS N550JV features a booming quad-speaker system, a beautiful touch screen and good gaming power.

Loud quad-array speakers; Very good graphics performance; Beautiful 1080p touch screen; Plenty of ports

Some touchpad issues; A bit heavier than competing notebooks

If you want a great multimedia experience, the $1,066 ASUS N550JV's booming quad-speaker array and gorgeous 1080p display will knock your socks off. Those looking to play more than casual games will also appreciate this notebook's Nvidia graphics....

ASUS N550JV Laptop


A desktop replacement that runs games well for under a grand?

Powerful day to day performance ; Plays games surprisingly well ; Blu-Ray Drive included ; Excellent Audio

Slightly iffy buttons on the touchpad ; Battery life could be stronger ; No solid state drive

Viewing angles are good - there’s very little distortion when you deviate from a head on angle as is the case with some screens, and in fact you can still see text clearly from angles long after it would be impractical to work with. The brightness is...

Asus N550JV review


Multimedia has always been the main focus for the N-Series, so Asus opts for a 15.6-inch IPS screen panel with 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, along with a built-in Blu-ray drive for watching high-definition films.

The slow hard drive is a cost-cutting weakness in a laptop costing almost £1000, and leaves it looking expensive in a crowded market. Nonetheless, the N550JV is an attractive multimedia laptop with impressive audio and video capabilities that could...

Asus N550JV


When the Asus N56VM arrived in PC Pro's Labs just over a year ago, it's fair to say we were smitten. Sharp looks, good performance and a keen price delivered it straight to the A List. Twelve months on and Asus is hoping to repeat the trick with the...

Power, good looks and a sensible price make the Asus N550JV a fantastic all-round desktop replacement

Jury Still Ourt


The jury is still out on this one since I've only had it a few days. After I rebooted it the machine went to reconfigure Windows and kept failing. After starting it again today everything worked fine. I'm going to see how things go this next week and...

Nice clean look ; Fast response and boot ; Detailed PDF instructions

Failed to refresh Windows updates on first tries at rebooting ; DVD eject button is very awkwardly placed ; 10 Key pad layout is odd

awful repair service and awful customer service


Stay away from this brand if you are not ready fight for months on the phone with customer service

It is a decent computer until it fails

Horrible repair service ... Horrible customer service ... I have a different version of this machine. I sent it to service center due to vertical streaks / lines on the screen. The computer was in mint condition before I sent it. It took them 1 month...

Could be MUCH better


This laptop could so much better. I can clearly see where Asus clipped full corners to bring the price point down. For a bit more money I would rather see this laptop come with a 760M GPU rather than a 750M, and a 512GB SSD. The cooling design is also...

touchscreen ; cpu ; gpu ; light weight ; stylish

weak gpu ; poor ventilation design = IT GETS HOT ; cd drive ; lack of storage options

Consumer review by:



Bought this for my daughter for college. I have been keeping it a work and playing it before i give it to her. I love it. I have a x1 Carbon and I guess I hopped it would be smaller. But it is I would say average for a 15". Great PC though. I play...

Solid Design, FAST, ports and drive option. Runs quiet and cool. Very good display

audio jack seems a little flakey. Almost as large as a small 17". The lid trim on the edges of the screen has a little bit of an edge to it. Not bad, but it is noticable. White keyboard back light is useless in normal light. works better off. That is...

Good computer, work fine for gaming


Its a great laptop, it is pretty fast, it can run battlefield 4 with medium setting, and it doesn't get too hot while playing game. One thing i didn't like is the screen shakes a lot when it was touched or when the computer was moved.This product is......

Graphic, nvidia geforce

The screen shakes
