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....

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...

First and last ASUS


This review is long overdue.I have 2 computers - a desktop and a laptop. My desktop is a Dell XPS all-in-one 27" and my laptop is this Asus model. I primarily bought this laptop for personal use and school work. Nothing too crazy.First off, my review...

Best high end laptop I've seen


This is the no excuses laptop. It has (almost) everything right out of the box. I'm a software developer and I need a high end laptop. Lately, the pickings have been kind of slim at least in stores like Best Buy and Fry's. I found this gem online and...

PC Mag Editors Choice


This laptop won PC Mag Editors Choice. As far as the negative reviews go, take a look at how ASUS support has reached out to the customers having problems by replying to the negative reviews and offering assistance. I don't see Apple doing that? This...

Avoid ASUS


The hinge on my lap top snapped after owning it 2 weeks. The hinge is molded to the LCD and ASUS will charge $200 for repairs. I only bought the lap top in August 2013. ASUS will not honor its warranty. I will never buy another ASUS product.This...

Avoid ASUS products


I had this computer for only a week before I ran into problems with the unit and had to send it in. I quickly learned that if service and support is important to you then avoid ASUS products like the plague. Their support people are incompetent, and...

DVD drive, display, backlit keyboard, i7 processor

Battery life, Asus support, slow hard drive, doesn't support windows 8.1, problems with system image and configuration

Screen is HD 1920 x 1080


When I was shopping for a laptop I came across this model and initially passed on it because the screen resolution was listed as not being HD. I researched it further and found that the specs given on this and other websites are false. The screen is in...

Good price, tons of power, dedicated graphics

Short battery life

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...
