Review Asus X53E-SX082V Notebook

 

TestIT!2011, the second. Asus sends the X53E into the race for the Intel test campaign. The laptop, also equipped with an Intel Core i5 processor and its incorporated HD 3000 graphics unit, is supposed to especially stick out from the competition...

Stable case, Good cooling, Material selection (aluminum), Display's good color reproduction, That Asus considers the material a bit and also uses aluminum in its notebooks with an entry level configuration

Average contrast, No Bluetooth, No USB 3.0, A better interface positioning. Asus has simply distributed all ports in the notebook's front area

Review Asus K53SV-SX131V Notebook

 

IceCool. Asus is trying to appeal to the mainstream with its new K53SV multimedia notebook. The 15 inch device should impress with its Intel Core i5-2410M dual-core processor, as well as the GeForce GT 540M graphics card from Nvidia. In addition to...

Stable case, Good cooling, Solid application performance, Blu-ray drive, Quiet noise, Especially the stable case of the Asus K53SV was able to impress us

Weak display, Throttling, No USB 3.0 & Bluetooth, A USB 3.0 port and Bluetooth would be advantageous for the K53SV. Otherwise the ports could also be better distributed

ASUS K53SV

 

The ASUS K53SV-B1 offers quad-core muscle and fast frame rates in a handsome design that keeps its cool.

At $949, the K53SV-B1 is a nice-looking laptop that offers more than enough power for multimedia enthusiasts and even gamers. And even with its quad-core processor and Nvidia graphics, this machine runs pretty cool. However, the system lacks USB 3.0...

Asus K53E-B1

 

With its 15.6-inch display, dual-core Intel processor, and integrated graphics, the Asus K53E falls shy of our power and size criteria for inclusion in the desktop replacement category. But as all-purpose notebooks go, it's definitely on the beefy...

Good battery life, superior audio ; Handsome, full-featured, reasonably priced

No 5GHz Wi-Fi, some ergonomic keyboard issues ; Mediocre performance; heavy for its screen size

Good looks, superior audio,excellent battery life, and a modest price make the K53E-B1 a good deal for everyday tasks if portability and speed aren't prime concerns.

ASUS K53E-B1 Review

 

For $749, the ASUS K53E-B1 gives buyers a stylish design and top-notch overall performance. We just wish the keyboard felt a little more solid and that the Wi-Fi performance was stronger from longer distances. For $50 more, you can get a Blu-ray player...

Classy design, Scratch-resistant aluminum deck, Strong performance, Great battery life

Some keyboard flex, Weak Wi-Fi range

Asus K53E-B1

 

There are battery benefits that come with Sandy Bridge, although the K53E-B1's battery score of 6 hours 26 minutes in MobileMark 2007 wouldn't have been possible without a decent size battery (56WH). It's a bigger battery than the one found in the...

Dual-core Sandy Bridge processor is fast. 6GB of memory included. Beautifully designed. Over 6 hours of battery life. Good typing experience. 640GB hard drive

Annoyingly loud mouse buttons. A USB 3.0 port would've been nice

The Asus K53E-B1 desktop replacement laptop features one of the first dual-core Sandy Bridge processors and amassed over 6 hours of battery life.

Asus K53E-RBR4

 

The keys were, for the most part, fine for typing, though detail-oriented power users may mind that there's no right Window key here: just Alt, the context-sensitive menu key, and a double-width control key. To the right of that are the four arrow...

Attractive design. Decent productivity performance

No USB 3.0 ports. Other laptops offer better features for similar price

The Asus K53E-RBR4 is a good-looking laptop that's acceptably fast, but other systems that cost the same offer more.

Asus K53SV-B1

 

The Asus K53SV-B1 measures 1.4 by 14.9 by 9.8 inches (HWD), with a 15.6-inch widescreen display. Its 1,366-by-768 resolution is suitable for watching video in 720p high definition, and the screen size provides plenty of visual real-estate for...

Quad-core Intel Core i7-2630QM processor. Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics card with Optimus switching technology. Luxurious aluminum palm rest stays cool to the touch. Wide-keyed, dust repelling keyboard. Generous warranty

Basic feature set. Awkwardly placed power connector

The Asus K53SV-B1 desktop replacement laptop packs high-end performance without the price tag, offering quad-core Intel Core i7 processing and powerful Nvidia GeForce graphics for under $1,000.
