Reviews for the Asus K42JV-X1

80% ASUS K42JV-X1 14-inch Thin And Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English

The ASUS K42JV-X1 offers a good mix of strong performance and graphics in a compact 14-inch package. Not only does it feature a Core i5 processor but also a 7200rpm 500GB hard drive. The keyboard design is also very comfortable to use but the glossy coating will easily pick up fingerprints. Graphics are good and switchable between dedicated and integrated but it is older technology that doesn't support Direct X 11 and must be switched manually.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M: The GeForce GT 335M offers 72 shader cores (compared to the 48 of the GT 330M) and is based on the GT215 core (GTS 350M).

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

450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
