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...

Update review Asus N56VM Notebook with GT 630M

 

Cheaper. After the review of the N56VZ with the powerful GeForce

matte surfaces; 4x USB 3.0; Keyboard light; bright, matte FullHD display with decent viewing angles; good sound due to external subwoofer

loose LAN port; inconvenient location of interfaces; poor click pad

Without doubt the GT 650M in the Asus N56VZ.

Mobile Ivy Bridge and ASUS N56VM Preview

 

Intel is firing a massive artillery barrage at its competition today with the release of desktop and mobile Ivy Bridge processors. Last year's Sandy Bridge gave Intel a huge lead in the performance segment of the market, a lead that AMD has yet to...

From the moment I first opened the package and pulled out the N56VM, I have been impressed with ASUS’ latest hardware. The silver palm rest is a nice change of pace from all the black laptops I’ve tested during the past few years, the keyboard is...

GOOD FOR GAMING!

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.

Asus' Ivy Bridge-powered N56VM notebook

 

At last, Ivy Bridge is out. Surely that means a tidal wave of next-generation ultrabooks is about to hit. Surely we're about to slice our fingers on Ivy Bridge-powered systems so thin they can be classified as bladed weapons.

Let's talk about Ivy Bridge first and the N56VM second.

When Ivy Bridge was released Ryan did a deep-dive and desktop review while I worked on a review of the mobile processor. My mobile review was based on a reference laptop known as the ASUS N56VM. Although considered a “reference platform,” the laptop is...

The first laptop we've seen to show off one of the new Intel Ivy Bridge mobile processors is the Asus N56VM, a 15.6-inch desktop replacement. The chip is the Core i7-3720QM, a 2.6GHz quad-core, eight-thread processor with 6MB of cache. The laptop also...

ASUS N56VM Ivy Bridge laptop review

 

ASUS N56VM review: Use this third generation Intel Core i7-based laptop for office work, gaming and other tough tasks

Performance ; Good user comfort ; Matte screen

Touchpad could be a little better ; SD card slot hard to access ; Budget Wi-Fi module

The ASUS N56V offers good performance, lots of useful features and a great level of user comfort. We enjoyed using it very much and think it's a good unit to consider if you want fast application performance, as well as the ability to run modern games.

Asus N56VM review

 

Most laptops include speakers almost as an afterthought – they tend to be small, tinny and rarely sound very good. The same can't be said of the N56VM – Asus bundles an external subwoofer to pair with the integrated Bang & Olufsen speakers, hopefully...

Stylish and powerful, the N56VM is a great value multimedia laptop

Asus N56VM

 

Asus' N56VM is quite a decent laptop, so it's a huge shame that it's been lumped with a lower-quality screen that significantly impacts the user experience.

Great keyboard and touchpad ; Good performance for mainstream ; Great audio for a laptop ; Matte screen ; Backlit keyboard

Screen text isn't as sharp as it should be despite ClearType tweaking ; Visible vertical lines and graininess indicate a lower quality panel ; No Bluetooth

Asus' N56VM is quite a decent laptop, so it's a huge shame that it's been lumped with a lower-quality screen that significantly impacts the user experience. If you can find the full HD option, it may be better, but we'd bypass this one.
