Reviews for the Asus K72DR-A1
Source: Comp Reviews
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.

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.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
