Reviews for the Asus F75A-TY089H
Affordable 17.3-inch laptop. With the F75A, Asus offers a simple office notebook for around $480. Its 17.3-inch screen, Pentium processor, 500 GB HDD and Windows 8 are supposed to be sufficient for most users. Our review will show whether this claim is met.
All in all, the ASUS F75A laptop is an excellent deal for $545. Anyone wanting to spend a little extra to boost the capability of the F75 a Core i3-2370M CPU can be configured for an additional 100 or so dollars. We’d recommend it for good future-proofing, but for emailing, movie-watching and surfing the Asus F75 is fine out of the box.
