Review: Asus M50Vm-B4

 

A desktop replacement in the body of a midrange PC, complete with high-end goodies like HDMI, eSATA and even a 10-key number pad. It performs...

Second-best performance in its class after the MacBook Pro. Roomy keyboard. Swiveling webcam can point at the user or out into the world

Autodimmer makes the screen look a little dark in some light situations. Battery life is a middling 1.5 hours

Review Asus M50V Notebook

 

Multimedia Talent from Asus. Even after the manufacturer Asus had

Very good and robust workmanship; Ample port connections with a user-friendly arrangement; Blu-Ray drive; Pivotable webcam with an integrated array microphone; Very low surface temperatures; Dual-Mode function of the touchpad

Very high reflective display; Loud cooling under load; Mediocre distribution of the display brightness

The Asus M50V is primarily to be recommended for multimedia users who set value on a compact case which has a clearly arranged display and also plan to often carry their notebook from A to B. Due to the carrying case included in the range of delivery,...

Review Asus M50S Notebook

 

Multimedia all-rounder. After the Asus M70S and the M51SN, it i

Very good and robust workmanship; Extensive interfaces (HDMI, eSATA) with user friendly alignment; Blu-Ray drive and rotatable webcam with integrated microphone; Large keyboard with separate number pad; Very low surface temperatures; Dual-mode function...

Very short battery life; Strongly reflecting display; Only recovery and driver DVD

The Asus M50S can mainly be recommended for multimedia users, who value a compact case but still want a display with a large working space. The notebook is also easy to transport from place to place, but it should be used near the mains, because the...

Asus M50Sv-A1 User Review

 

Asus recently introduced the M50Sv-A1 personal entertainment laptop, featuring the newest Intel Penryn processor, nVidia's 9 series mobile graphics card, and many other bells and whistles fused together to provide anyone the option for serious gaming...

Gorgeous screen ; Number pad on keyboard ; Ample selection of ports (esp. HDMI and eSATA) ; Minimal fan noise ; Altec Lansing speakers ; Well priced

Below average battery life ; Ports concentrated at front of laptop ; Status lights next to fingerprint reader are very bright (may not affect everyone)

From prior experience with Asus, their customer support is great via telephone. E-mail CS is another story. It is recommended that you call their tech support or your reseller directly if you have problems/issues with your Asus laptop. Asus resellers...

Asus M50Vm

 

The M50Vm is a great mid-weight laptop, with a few years of longevity in it as well. And at AU$1,999, it's definitely worth a look.

Solid construction, Affordable for what's offered, Good extras

Multimedia touchpad far too easy to accidentally turn on, Video log-on and Splendid modes as useless as ever, 32-bit Windows limits the amount of RAM you can use, Heat exhausts from the left

ASUS M50VM-AS001G

 

A heavy device that packs a strong kick.

Good performance, excellent expandability options, relatively good graphics card

Heavy, no Blu-ray

This is a powerful mid-range all-purpose notebook that is well worth looking at, as long as you can stand carting around a 3kg laptop.
