Reviews for the Asus K53E-RBR4
Source: PC Mag
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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.2 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).
