Reviews for the Asus K53E-RBR4

70% Asus K53E-RBR4
Source: PC Mag English
The Asus K53E-RBR4 offers a fair amount of power and punch for its money, though it's not a stellar performer along the lines of the Editors' Choice Asus U56E-BBL6 (which costs quite a bit more) or Lenovo IdeaPad V570-1066AJU (which costs the same). We'd even give a slight edge to the Samsung NP300E5A-A01UB, because of its outstanding battery life and its identical price, or the Gateway NV55S05u because of its gaming prowess and lower cost. There's nothing wrong with the K53E-RBR4, though any of these other systems would help you stretch your dollar further.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.


2.5 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.
