79% Review Asus K61IC Notebook | Notebookcheck
Frigid Fellow. Asus expands its K-Series to a 16.0 inch display with the K61IC. The Ice-Cool technology is once again on board and provides for comfortable temperatures on the palm rest. But this isn't the only surprise. The maker also amps up the graphic card to a Nvidia GeForce GT 220M. Does this perhaps change the previously lame office notebook into a true racer?

The Asus K61IC-JX017V sells for a price of Rs. 45,000. It may not have the best keyboard or battery life, but for that price, we think you should buy the Asus K61IC laptop for its very good screen and onboard audio, giving you a very good audio-video playback experience. Also it comes with 2 years of global warranty -- something you don't see from other laptop vendors. You should consider it if you want a good home entertainment multimedia laptop and want that extra warranty cover.

Asus reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 220M: The GeForce GT 220M is a relabeled GeForce 9600M GT for OEM laptop sellers. It is for example used in the Medion Akoya P6620 where it uses fast GDDR3 memory. The specs and features are identical to the GeForce 9600M GT.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

T4300:

Entry - middle class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated. 

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T6600: Entry level Core 2 Duo dual core processor with a small 2MB level 2 cache and without virtualization functions.

2.7 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

2.8 kg:


79%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
