82% Review Asus K72JK-TY001V Notebook | Notebookcheck
Bread and Butter. Asus' mainstream models are labeled K-series. They are supposed to satisfy the average computer needs. Barely any connections, little performance and an average display? Read if we can recommend the 17 incher at hand.

70% Asus K72F review
Source: CNet English

If you want a laptop with a large screen, but your budget is tight, this 17-inch Asus K72F might fit the bill. Our review model was supplied by Laptops Direct, where it's available for £559.84 -- a pretty attractive price tag for a model with this screen size. It´s not the most exciting laptop around, but the Asus K72F offers a large screen and good performance at a low-ish price.

The wide chassis leaves plenty of room for the isolation-style keyboard which comfortably includes a separate numeric keypad. While the keyboard doesn't span the whole width of the chassis, the keys are still well-sized and firmly mounted. The touchpad is also generously sized and responsive, making it easy to use.

Those looking for an affordable high definition media platform will be well pleased with the features on the AMD based ASUS K72DR-A1. With a price tag under $1000, the system offers a nice balance of performance and features including a very comfortable keyboard. There are some big drawbacks to the laptop though including a display that doesn't support full 1080p, below average battery life and a lack of many peripheral connectors.

Asus reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145: The 5145 is a renamed Mobility Radeon HD 4570 with slightly higher clock rates. Therefore it has no DirectX 11 support and a performance between the 4570 and 5470.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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


Intel Core i3:

350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

AMD Athlon II:

P320: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.

AMD Phenom II X3:

N830: Mobile 3-core laptop processor based on the desktop Athlon II X3.


17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.1 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.

3.3 kg:


74.18%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.

» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
