Reviews for the Asus K60IJ-RBLX05
Buying a budget laptop often means cutting corners, so let's take a look at the Asus K60IJ-RBLX05. With a 16-inch screen and a 320GB hard drive, it costs just $499. That sounds, right off the bat, like a good deal. So where are the drawbacks? Although the Asus K60IJ-RBLX05 is an affordable 16-inch budget laptop, it's missing the processing punch and features that can be had for just a little more money.
