ASUS K53S Review

 

The notebook space is going to see a lot of change over the next few months, thanks to Ultrabooks being launched by all brands. The Sandy Bridge platform has matured over the months and there are quite a few interesting notebooks that customers have...

The ASUS K53S is a great product, if you’re willing to spend Rs. 44,999 on it. It’s also a great notebook, if you’re into multimedia applications and gaming on-the-go. The performance isn’t spectacular when it comes to gaming, so don’t expect to be...

Asus X53SC Review

 

The latest addition to Asus' X series is the X53SC, which packs in plenty of muscle under its hood. Its plain vanilla design in no way gives an impression about it being extremely powerful, but anyone's jaws would drop looking at the configuration...

The X53SC is built for those who want power for demanding applications and multitasking. It’s great for media playback, but the gaming performance is disappointing. Also the design is too plain and the battery life isn’t too great, either. However, all...

Review Asus X53E-SX082V Notebook

 

TestIT!2011, the second. Asus sends the X53E into the race for th

Stable case; Good cooling; Material selection (aluminum); Display's good color reproduction

Average contrast; No Bluetooth; No USB 3.0

Potential competition is found in almost every notebook that participates in the TestIT!2011 campaign because they all have an almost identical configuration. Thus, the Packard Bell EasyNote TS11 that was in for our tests recently with an Intel Core...

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.

Great battery life (5 hours) ; Good performance ; Solid build quality ; Cool and quiet ; Two-year warranty standard

Low screen resolution ; Loud touchpad buttons ; Lack of port selection

Asus K53E-B1

 

PC maker Asus has spent the last several years riding the popular Netbook wave, almost single-handedly creating the sub-$400 10-inch laptop category. But now that Netbooks have faded from the top products lists (largely for failing to innovate), Asus...

Sharp design and excellent battery life, plus a surprisingly affordable price, make the 15-inch Asus K53E a smart alternative to more-expensive midsize laptops.

There are no configuration options, so you're stuck with integrated graphics, and there are no high-speed ports, such as USB 3.0 or eSATA.

For Intel's next-gen CPUs in an attractive, affordable, midsize package, the Asus K53E is easier on the wallet than systems from Dell or Apple.

ASUS K53E

 

Powered by a second-generation Core i5 processor, the 15-inch ASUS K53E is stylish, fast, and offers excellent endurance.

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...

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 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.
