Reviews for the Asus K73E-XA1

60% ASUS K73E-XA1 17.3-inch Desktop Replacement Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
With a price tag of $800, the ASUS K73E-XA1 does have a good overall price for those looking for lots of storage space and support for Blu-ray media. The system also has a very comfortable albeit somewhat small keyboard. The problem is that the integrated graphics and poor viewing angles on the display make it less suitable for anything that is very graphic oriented.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

2410M:

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 (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

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.

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