Reviews for the Asus K50ID-X1

60% ASUS K50ID-X1 15.6-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
The ASUS K50ID-X1 offers a unique experience over other budget laptops by providing a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT 320M graphics processor making the system a mobile PC gaming platform. This comes at a cost to the general performance of the system in a slower Pentium dual-core processor. Because of this, the system is suited best for those looking at low cost PC gaming and not a general purpose system.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 320M: The GT320M was presented in the HP dv6t and dv7t series and is based on a stripped down GT216 with only 24 shaders.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
