Reviews for the Asus A53Z-NS61
Source: Comp Reviews
ASUS offers a very affordable option for those looking at a 15-inch laptop with the A53Z. Based on the AMD Fusion processor, it comes with a quad core processor with improved integrated graphics that make it capable for some casual PC gaming. The downside is that the system is held back by its limited memory and small hard drive.
