Reviews for the Asus K53SK-SX021V

79% Short Review Asus K53SK-SX021V Notebook | Notebookcheck
The price is hot. Asus proves with the K53SK-SX021V that you don't have to spend more than 600 Euros for good performance. Alongside the metal palm rest, the brand new Radeon HD 7610M catches your eye. Can the 15-inch all-rounder stand against the tough competition?
75% ASUS K53S Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The ASUS K53S is a great product, if you’re willing to spend Rs. 44,999 on it. It’s also a great notebook, if you’re into multimedia applications and gaming on-the-go. The performance isn’t spectacular when it comes to gaming, so don’t expect to be gaming at ultra high quality settings. With medium settings, you’ll be able to play the games just fine. If you’re looking for a notebook for purely desktop applications, then you’ll be fine with something priced at under Rs. 40,000, but without a discrete graphics solution onboard.

Comment

AMD Radeon HD 7610M: Based on the same chip as the Radeon HD 6630M but with slower clock rates and only 5 instead of the 6 SIMD blocks = 400 shader.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

2350M:

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 2.3 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card.

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.


2.63 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.
