Reviews for the Asus K50IJ-RX05
When you learn not to expect much from entry-level products, there is a better chance you'll be surprised by what you find. For example, when we first looked over the Asus K50IJ-RX05, we saw a fairly basic laptop powered by an older Intel dual-core processor. As long as you won't need more than what it already has, the budget-friendly Asus K50IJ-RX05 is money well spent.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these 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.
Entry class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.
