Review Asus N73SV Notebook

 

Downgrade. The sound machine, Asus N73JQ, impressed in November 210 with high-end workmanship, exclusive materials and a Full HD screen. The predecessor no longer has a quad core, dual HDD and Full HD. In return, the price has been reduced.

Very good sound, Good processing performance, Good 3D performance, Always cool, Quality build, Low system noise, BluRay drive, Two hard disk slots, USB 3.0, LAN+USB on the rear, Quality aluminum workmanship and high stability in almost all areas....

Very heavy, Spongy keys, Low contrasts, TFT not outdoor suitable, No ExpressCard54/34, The awful keyboard and the weak display spoil the otherwise well designed laptop

ASUS N73SV review: A Full HD desktop replacement notebook with a Blu-ray writer

Great performance ; Lots of internal storage ; Good speakers

Poor keyboard ; Wi-Fi not dual-band ; No RAID

The ASUS N73SV is designed to live on a desk and undertake almost any task you throw at it with ease. In addition to run-of-the-mill office and Web tasks, it's also useful for video editing, gaming and even design work. However, it has an awful...

Asus N73Jn

 

Attractively presented in brushed aluminium, this premium 17.3in multimedia laptop sports an audio system co-developed by Bang & Olufsen.

Attractive design, Decent build quality, Excellent connectivity

Sub-par screen, Keyboard feels cheap

Asus N73Jn review

 

With an elegant design, solid performance and an array of useful expansion ports, the N73Jn is an attractive choice, but it can't quite match Acer's 8943G for value

Asus N73SV

 

This massive 17.3-inch machine did well in our 2011 multimedia laptops roundup, but in many regards plays second-fiddle to HP's Envy 17.

Asus N73SV Core i7 Sandy Bridge 17.3in laptop

 

Review As a multi-media laptop the Asus NX90 [1] is undoubtedly desirable but it's as big as a barge, weighs a ton and costs an arm and a leg. However, now you can get the same Bang & Olufsen sound system, full HD screen and the latest Sandy Bridge i7...

An i7 N73 will set you back around £900 which is pretty decent value when you consider the top-end technical specification, superb full-HD screen, cracking sound reproduction, attractive looks and generally very good built quality. Compared to a 17inch...

Asus N73JN laptop

 

A notebook wired for sound

Great base specifications, excellent audio, non-gloss display, decent performance, USB 3.0

Flex in keyboard, multi-touchpad, expensive, battery life

been waiting to get its ears on the Asus N73JN ever since it was first turned up to 11 at Computex trade show in Taiwan earlier this year. The reason for this aural trope is because Asus described the laptop with the oxymoron "good laptop audio".

Consumer review by: Brendan (newegg.com)

Better than a MacBook Pro

 

Easily runs all Adobe applications as well as any music production software. I don't game too much but I've played a little Counter Strike and once again, it is super smooth. Battery life is good and it runs pretty cool. Speakers are the best of any...

It does not come with a hot girlfriend, or a light up apple on the back. That's an extra $1,100
