Reviews for the Asus G550JK-CN268D
Source: Trusted Reviews
The G550JK sits in the middle of the road, but that’s no bad thing. It’s a cheaper and more manageable purchase that’s worth investigating in if the high prices and thermal issues of rivals are enough to put you off. This laptop won't play games at top settings, but it offers good compromise between performance, price and ease of use. If you want a laptop for all occasions, not just gaming, it's a good option.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
