Review Asus N56VB-S4050H Notebook


Ambitious. Metal surfaces, backlit keyboard, a Full HD screen and

Bright and high-contrast Full HD screen with anti-glare surface; Good all-round performance; Moderate emissions; Backlit keyboard; High-quality sound; Graphics switching; Stylish case

Touchpad could be improved; Suboptimal interface distribution; Battery runtime could be longer; Weak Wi-Fi range; No recovery DVD

15-inch all-round laptops featuring a good screen, such as Acer's Aspire V3-571G, Samsung's Series 7 Chronos 770Z5E (review coming soon) or Sony's Vaio SV-S1511X9E/B.

Asus N56VB-S3181H


The software specs are quite reasonable over all the areas

Personally, it's too heavy for me ; There always seems to be a clicking sound coming from the DVD drive

Asus N56VB-S3181H


Cheapest Core i7 I could find ; Amazing subwoofer ; Very nice and smooth keyboard ; Boots up and shuts down quite fast ; Four USB 3 ports which are very tough and tight

The screen seems to be very vulnerable from the backside. When you close the lid, you should be very gentle with its top because it is not rigid very much. You can sense that it goes a little bit inside when you push it on the top ; The webcam is a bit...

Asus N56VB-S3181H


Fast start up. Amazing processing speed for video and music production. Lovely screen resolution and picture quality. Windows 8/8.1 is slight clunky. But I'm just getting to used to its 'funny ways

Asus N56VB-S3181H


Runs games, videos, music, applications smoothly

Finger prints easily mark the case and the laptop making it look quite dirty
