Asus GL551JK Notebook Review

 

Readjusted. Despite its powerful hardware, the GL551JK remains a quiet and unobtrusive notebook. The comparatively long battery life is an added bonus.

Bright Full-HD IPS display, Fast SSD, Only gets moderately warm and noisy, Comparatively good battery life, Maintenance cover, Good input devices, Blu-Ray combo-drive

Only DDR3-VRAM

The Asus GL551JK is a 15.6-inch gaming notebook. The Core i7 processor has more than enough power for all conceivable scenarios and the GeForce GPU can handle all current games. Although the hardware is very powerful, the notebook only gets moderately...

Dead as a Doornail

 

If I could rate it lower, I would!

Laptop died this morning--a year and two months after purchase. No problems beforehand. Spontaneously powered itself off and all lights are dead. Nice!

None to speak of

The case smudges easily, the machine overheats, the keys are hard to see, the customer service is minimal

Gaming on the cheap

 

Okay, I'm going to get the negatives out of the way first, so I can focus on what I like about it. As mentioned above, the material around the keyboard constantly looks like I molested it after gorging on fast food. That's just an aesthetic complaint,...

The (sale) price, the power and the performance of the video chipset

The aluminum finish holds fingerprints and leaves them looking greasy and the wall-side cord out of the power adapter is a bit short

Additionally,I paid $879 for this laptop, and even at that price it was a bad buy. I can't believe they upped the price for this.

HALT! WARNING! WARNING! DANGER! DANGER!

 

I had high hopes for this laptop. I was shooting for a gaming laptop for under $1000. I was ecstatic when I found this ASUS that met my criteria. Unfortunately it fell quite short. The screen looked faded and washed out; the reds appeared pink and...
