Reviews for the Asus K50IJ-C1

Source: PC Mag English
Odds are that you've already committed to a lightweight laptop for next semester, say, a netbook or an Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch. What you might miss, however, is the luxury of a big screen, which, among other things, can improve the cinematic experience, enable multitasking with multiple windows, and keep scrolling down to a minimum. The ASUS K50IJ-C1 ($680 street) is a desktop replacement laptop that gives you a relatively big 15.6-inch screen and basic laptop features. The ASUS K50IJ-C1 is as cheap as a desktop replacement laptop will get without sacrificing too many features or too much performance.

Long known for its high quality, but not always for its low prices, Asus is flexing its competitive muscle in the budget-laptop arena with its K50IJ-C1 mainstream notebook. Asus calls its K50IJ series its “most aggressively priced” laptops. The K50IJ-C1, starting at $699, is indeed that. For a midsize laptop with a 15.6-inch screen, the K50IJ-C1 offers above-average performance and Asus’s winning aesthetics. With above-average performance at a competitive price, this laptop is a serious contender among budget notebooks.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these 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.


Entry level Penryn based dual-core CPU with a small 2MB level 2 cache and FSB800. Similar to the T6570 but without VT-x.

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.

2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
