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.

Asus N56VM

 

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

 

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, and so it's a huge shame 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.
