Reviews for the Asus K52JT-XT1R
Source: Techreview Source
Battery life with the Asus K52JT-XT1R is only average at about 2.5-3 hours of life, which is about on par with other similar computers. The lower battery life compared to more budget notebooks comes from the more powerful specifications, especially the quad-core Intel CPU and dedicated AMD graphics system.

The Asus K52JT-XT1R brings a lot of strong features to the table, like quad-core processing and a dedicated graphics card. Best of all, it manages to pack all of these components into a package that can be purchased for under $1000. While you can get a few better features from a more expensive system, like the Dell XPS 15, the Asus K52JT manages to hold in its category.

AMD Radeon HD 6370M: Renamed old HD 5470 with 80 shader processors and DirectX11 support.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.
