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.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
