Reviews for the Asus N43JF
The Asus N43JF is priced at Rs 61,999, which is quite a bit for a mainstream laptop without discrete graphics. However if you think of it as a scaled-down version of the Asus NX90J , then you might even like the price. By the end of September, the N53JG will be available with discrete graphics and should be priced at around Rs 63,000. We'd say, more than anything else, you'd be paying slightly extra for the Bang & Olufsen ICE Power Audio and the superb aesthetics. There are laptops that don't look as good as these, but offer better multimedia functionality and power for a lower price.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M: Successor of the GeForce GT 335M featuring DirectX 11 support and based on the GF108 chip.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
