Reviews for the Asus K52JR-SX071V
Source: Good Gear Guide
Along the edges of the ASUS K52Jr you'll find a built-in DVD burner, an SD card slot, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, VGA, microphone and headphone ports, and it also has three USB 2.0 ports. You also get 802.11n Wi-Fi and a webcam. You don't get Bluetooth or eSATA. It's a standard set of features for a laptop that costs just over $1000; the ASUS K52JR's biggest selling point is the ATI graphics adapter, which gives the notebook a little more graphics juice than other notebooks in this price range.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.
