Benchmarkcheck: The Secret World

 

No standard MMO. With 'The Secret World', EA has released an unusual online RPG that feels different from many of its competitors. Adventure elements have taken priority over relentless grinding and common fetch quests. This Benchmarkcheck analyzes...

GOOD FOR GAMING!

Expert review by: Matthew Elliott (computershopper.com)

Asus N56VZ-DS71

 

How serious is the Asus N56VZ-DS71 about multimedia? Some entertainment laptops incorporate a small subwoofer along with their stereo speakers. The N56VZ-DS71 ($1,149) comes with a genuine external subwoofer that plugs into a tiny jack on the left edge...

Strong application and graphics performance ; Attractive, metal design ; External subwoofer improves music playback ; Quiet operation

Stiff and skittish touch pad ; Confusing Webcam software setup

Well-rounded and fairly priced, the Asus N56VZ is a 15-inch laptop built for any and all manner of multimedia.

good BANG for ur BUCK

 

Sleek design, good performance for this price. Not a fan of the touch pad, slight hover over the pad when typing will scramble the cursor and mess up your typing.

good machine, good value

 

No problems at all, but it is an 8 year upgrade so improvement was expected. Nice speed, easy to use and set up, quite nice sound for a laptop. Could use more than 4GB but very satisfied.

Pretty good

 

I just had some problems with it, ASUS has too much background programs, had to uninstall a lot of programs, and the anti virus program was slowing the PC down. Once I uninstalled them though, it is working great.
