Asus NX90JQ-A1

 

Dual touchpads has never been done on a laptop until now. Obviously, they'll take a while to get accustomed to. I can understand why there are two of them, though: Since the designer didn't want the touchpad (with the mouse buttons) in the usual spot,...

Huge side-mounted speakers. Amazing sound quality. A fast quad-core processor. Vibrant 18.4-inch widescreen. 1080p resolution. Good graphics performance. Blu-ray drive included

Polished aluminum has mirror-like characteristics. Heavy and awkward-looking. Insanely expensive

The pair of Bang & Olufsen ICEpower speakers on the Asus NX90JQ-A1 is unlike anything you've seen on a laptop and targets serious audiophiles.

Asus NX90Jq - Pocket-lint

 

The Asus NX90 comes in what may be the largest notebook packaging we've ever seen; its very own stylish black monolith, designed to make you feel you're

Fantastic sound in a stylish design with great PC performance, the Asus NX90 is almost as good as it looks

You don't expect portability with this size of screen but the weight is significant and the battery life is not, Core i7 might be a processor too far and the price tag is as impressive as the spec

The NX90 is a substantial as well as stylish notebook that could be ridiculous but actually impresses. We're calling it a notebook rather than a laptop because if you have this on your lap for a few hours, your knees start to ache. Really, this is a...

Asus NX90JQ review

 

Asus and Bang & Olufsen join forces for this new laptop

Fantastic design ; Great audio ; Interesting usability ; Power on offer ; Wealth of features

Average performance for the money ; Audio isn't ear-shatteringly excellent ; Screen is a little dim ; Portability ; Ultimately doesn't ooze value for money

Lots of power and features, but it really is big and expensive!

Asus NX90Jq 18.4in Core i7 laptop

 

Review I first encountered Bang & Olufsen in my teens. A friend's father had a Beocenter music system [1], which we fledgling audiophiles were, of course, both in awe of and barred from touching. The sleek lines, matt black controls and aluminium...

The Asus NX90Jq is a well-specified machine which packs a punch in terms of audio performance. Its striking design suggests it would be ideal as the centrepiece of a home entertainment centre, albeit a relatively expensive choice. Given the battery...
