Reviews for the Asus K52F
Looking at the K52F’s performance, it’s safe to say that this notebook is not the best performer among the entry-level notebooks that we have seen. Scores are pretty average but that is only if you’re comparing the K52F with other expensive notebooks. At Rs. 28,399 the ASUS K52F definitely offers quite a lot in comparison to many notebooks that are priced at a similar range like the Lenovo IdeaPad Z570. You can get an entry level desktop PC with a little better specifications at this price, but for those looking for a low-budget portable notebook, the K52F turns out to be a good option.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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.
