Reviews for the Asus F50Sv-A2

Source: Inside HW English
Price tag for ASUS F50Sv is somewhere around 900€ which is relatively high, but with good reasons. First, there is Blu-ray optical device that doesn’t come cheap (no, it comes expensive). Second is top of the range Intel Core 2 Duo CPU that also has important influence on the final price. If you find this model with DVD combo, slower CPU and significantly lower price, it will make ASUS F50Sv a very interesting purchase, above all, because of its exceptional quality build.

Sixteen-inch laptops comprise a growing category, perhaps because they sit between the semiportable, 15-inch, mainstream systems and the heavy, 17- and 18-inch models that are essentially desk-bound machines with hinged screens. The $1,249 Asus F50SV-A2 packs a Blu-ray drive and a new mainstream Nvidia graphics chip into a relatively on-the-go package that's lighter than gaming beasts, but heavier than a standard laptop. While it's a Blu-ray-equipped 16-inch laptop with good gaming muscle, the Asus F50SV-A2's design left us cold.

ASUS F50SV-A2 Review
Source: English
The ASUS F50SV-A2 gave strong performance in our benchmarks and real-life game tests, thanks mostly to the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M graphics card. I really enjoyed the design and great build quality, which should allow the notebook to last until it is no longer fast enough to run the latest software. Overall I think a perfect change might be swapping the Blu-ray drive for a higher resolution screen, but I may be biased already owning a Blu-ray player. If you are in the market for a higher performing multimedia notebook, check out the ASUS F50SV, but make sure you are always within range of a power outlet.

This inexpensive 16-inch multimedia notebook packs speedy performance, gaming punch, and smooth Blu-ray playback. Just keep the power cord handy. ASUS provides consumers with a strong 16-inch notebook with solid graphics, speedy performance, and the latest in high-definition playback for $1,149. While we don’t expect this machine to stray too far from an outlet, its battery life is rather limited compared to other 16-inch systems. If you’re considering purchasing this machine, it’s worth taking a look at the Acer Aspire 6930G-6723, which while heavier and not as powerful, gets double the runtime and has a Blu-ray drive for $150 less. Still, those looking for a 16-inch notebook with strong performance and stunning Blu-ray playback should consider the ASUS F50Sv-A2.

Asus’s latest entertainment notebook is both affordable and effective. It offers everything you’d need for gaming, movie watching, and video editing for a very reasonable price of $1,149. It’s not the fastest performer on the market, but it’s far from slow and delivers enough power to serve your media needs. While the F50SV-A2 lacks some of the sex appeal of other entertainment notebooks, it offers a nice balance of features and performance for the price.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M: Slower clocked GeForce GT 130M with the same features (55nm) and a lower power consumption. Successor of the 9600M GS and about as fast as the 9600M GT.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.
