Asus N550JV-DB72T


Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.

Class-leading performance. Multimedia-oriented features. 1080p HD IPS screen. Subwoofer included. Multi-speaker sound. Fast wake from sleep. HDMI and mini-DisplayPort. Touch screen

Heavy. No 5GHz Wi-Fi support. No Blu-ray. Short battery life. Narrow numeric keys

The Asus N550JV-DB72T ($1,047.00) is a power user's desktop replacement laptop. It has a fourth-generation Intel Core processor, enthusiast level Nvidia GeForce graphics, and enough hard drive space for the video editor or video collector. The system's...

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...

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...

An overall solid performer


True: It is NOT a touch screen. That was a feature I could live without so I opted for this model. My brother recently got the N550JV-DB72T and he loves it. I had a chance to play with it a bit and I was quite impressed. So much so I got one too (sans...
