Reviews for the Asus K53BY-SX014V
Source: Inside HW
The overall impression given by K53BY is very positive, and should ASUS iron out all the small drawbacks in the final version, such as much too noisy touchpad buttons, we’d have trouble finding reasons not to recommend this model. A good price/performance ratio makes this ASUS a perfect candidate for our Best Buy award, which it would’ve got until we were informed that, as we’ve already said, there would be a model without the discreet graphics and costing 50€ less. That way, the aforementioned ratio really reaches the perfect balance, raising the usability value of netbooks far above what we’ve grown accustomed to enjoy up to now, and bridging the gap between netbooks and notebooks. For now, K53BY will have to enjoy its other award, while we rest assured that one of its variants will be the absolute best buy in this class.

AMD Radeon HD 6470M: Entry to middle class graphics card based on the Seymore XT codename featuring the UVD3 video processor.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
