Reviews for the Asus A53TA-XN1

70% ASUS A53TA-XN1 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $599 ASUS A53T will appeal to the budget notebook shopper looking for graphics oomph. Its attractive design, smooth touchpad, and Altec Lansing speakers are other pluses. While the AMD quad-core processor inside this machine isn't as fast as second-generation Intel CPUs, this notebook makes up for it in graphics prowess, with enough muscle to play demanding titles. For about the same price, consumers can pick up the Gateway NV55S05u, which offers a faster processor and a head-turning silver-and-white design but weaker 3D performance. Overall, though, the ASUS A53T is a good choice for the money.

AMD Radeon HD 6650M: Successor of the Mobility Radeon HD 5650 with more cores, UVD3 processor and Eyefinity+. Due to the same codename, the 6650M should be a HD 6750M with slow DDR3 memory.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
